The story is a very basic one. Girl has a premonition that the boy she likes is going to die. She spends the whole book trying to warn him and thence prevent prevent the premonition from becoming reality. I think this would have made a good short story for young readers. But the book basically has the main character, Jules, constantly replaying her premonition of a vehicle accident, followed by an explosion, over and over and yes... over again. That's seventy-five percent of the book. Throw in at least a little character development surrounding Jules and her family, and Jules's love interest Sawyer, and then the main "event" at the end of the book and you have the whole story in a nutshell.
I'm not giving the book one star because I didn't dislike the book. And, to be fair, a pre-teen might like the story. But I really can't imagine the story being developed enough to appeal to anyone over the age of 12. I remember reading books when I was 13 that I could not easily fit into the school's book report format of "write a paragraph describing the book's plot." This book *would* fit in that simple format. But that's just my opinion.
Really, the book was that good. I couldn't put it down. Of course I quickly finished (I'm a fast reader, my friends complain about it) and then got upset because the next one isn't out yet. When I was reading McMann's Wake series, what I was thrilled about was I read the first two the weekend before the third one came out so I had no real waiting for the series. This is different; the second book doesn't come out until October. Although that's only 10 months and not a year. I understand it could be worse.
Crash is the story of Jules, snarky, sarcastic, bitter Jules whose voice often seems like my own. Jules does not have an easy life. First of all, she is a teenager who has to drive a truck with giant balls on the top of it. They're meatballs, but still, they are balls. Jules does appreciate the good puns that come out of having to drive the truck. Second, her father has...his problems. He is a hoarder. He's a neat hoarder, but he still hoards. McMann is not new to writing conditions such as hoarding, with a previous book of her featuring OCD. Jules' mother and father own the family business, an Italian eatery (hence the balls) and the hoarding affects the family business. Jules, however, deals with it. She isn't on her own, she has a younger quirky sister and an awesome older brother. Her older brother, by the way, is gay.Read more ›
Mystery involving a vision and impending danger - I expected this book to grab me immediately and keep me on the edge of my seat. That did not happen. For quite a while, the story kept going over the same things. I know this is because Jules was trying to figure out how to deal with the vision, but I was reading about body bags and someone's "dead face" too much. I needed to move past all of that. Things got somewhat interesting more than halfway through, but nothing about this story was as fascinating as I hoped.
Jules: She used too much profanity. Also, "Dear dog", "Thank the dogs" and "I swear to dog" - I'm not sure what that was.
I purchased Crash, Bang (Visions), and Gasp (Visions), because I was intrigued by the synopses and the covers are stunning. I'm hopeful that I will enjoy Book Two more.
