"I am a professional psychic medium who mentors psychic young adults. I will absolutely have them read this book so they can finally see themselves represented as regular people in regular life, using their unique gifts to navigate challenging situations. The book is engaging and fun, parent friendly, and quite accurate in its representation of paranormal gifts. Fireworks is a very welcome addition to my professional library. I wholeheartedly recommend this book!"
"This book is truly amazing - a bit of mystery, a bit of drama, and romance - it has it all! I really like the characters and the chemistry between them. I didn't want to put it down. It was a page turner! I was positively impressed at the ending, and I really can't wait for another book! This book was the best book I've ever read."

One night when Becca doesn’t respond to any of Zoey’s texts, Zoey realizes that her dreams really were visions, and she knows something bad has happened to Becca. With Josh away, Zoey has no one to rely on but Dan; and she feels guilty asking for his help. When she learns about Dan's gift, Zoey thinks maybe she did make the right decision. Will things be okay with Josh? Will Dan and Zoey be able to put their gifts together and save Becca before it's too late?
Fireworks is a gripping young adult mystery by Janet McLaughlin. The author uses vivid details to create suspense. Once I started reading, I couldn’t put the book down! I feel that there are just the right number of characters, and although they are fictional, Zoey, Becca, Josh, and Dan all seem like typical, friendly teens.
One important message that recurs multiple times in this book is don’t worry about what others think of you. Fireworks also stresses the value of friendship and not giving up. I also like how the book deals with the romantic tension between Zoey, Josh, and Dan.
I highly recommend this book for mystery lovers in grades 7-10.

Zoey Christopher has an amazing ability: she’s psychic. Her psychic ability is both a blessing and a curse. When she gets a vision of her friend, Becca, in danger, Zoey can’t help but be worried for her friend’s safety. Zoey also can’t help but be distracted by the new cute boy at school. Dan is charming, but he’s also mysterious. Zoey can tell right away that he’s hiding something, and she will stop at nothing to find out. Join Zoey in this second installment of the Soul Sight Mysteries.
I wasn’t sure what to think of this book when I began reading it. It was intriguing, however, it also felt a bit boring and drawn out. I felt that the exciting part of the story only lasted a few chapters, while the rest of the book was only filled with teenage drama.
I really did not like the main character, Zoey, and how she treated her boyfriend, Josh. I felt that she was much too selfish and uncaring toward him. However, I did like her bravery and how she dealt with harsh situations. I feel that if the situation with her boyfriend had been handled more delicately, I would have liked her more as a character.
Though there were few, I did like the action sequences/exciting parts of the book. They were well-written, and I enjoyed them greatly. I just wish that there were more of them. Perhaps if the book were a bit longer the author could have spent more time on character building and exciting scenes.
Overall, this book has immense potential; it just needs a bit of work.
