TEEN: The Last Echo - Kimberly Derting

Release Date: 29/03/12  
Violet has always kept her strange ability to sense dead bodies a secret from everyone except her family and best-friend-turned-boyfriend Jay. But now she's using her gift to help track down murderers, working in a group that includes the mysterious and dangerously attractive Rafe. When Violet discovers the body of a college girl murdered by "the girlfriend collector", she is determine to solve the case. But now the serial killer is on the lookout for a new "relationship" and Violet seems to have caught his eye...  

I picked this title up on the recommendation of a friend and to be honest I’m glad I did, the lead character was not only a breath of fresh air but she came over as one that you could easily believe lived and breathed in our own world alongside being a person that you want to spend time with. Add to this a multifaceted personality, emotional conflict as well as character growth and these reasons alone present a wonderful read. Back that up with different character perspectives (including the killers) and you know that its going to be a hard book to not only put down but one that you’re going to eke out to make the reading pleasure last longer. All in, this title was a real treat and for me, the only real downside is that the next part isn’t available yet.
