When Kara was 11 she lost her father in a tragic boating accident. She also died. For eleven minutes. When she woke up, she found that she wasn't completely the same, she started seeing signs, clues she would see on a person's chest playing like a video. If she could figure them out in time, she could avert disasters (usually small ones). So when she sees a sign of a gun on a boy at school, she knows she HAS to figure this clue out before someone dies. In the process of trying to figure the mystery out she meets a cute boy from the "bad side" of town, who also presents yet another mystery. Will she be able Nancy Drew this case in time to save lives?
I LOVED this book. The character's are astonishingly real, and it's easy to relate to Kara even if you never had problems quite like hers. You want things to go well for her. The writer is so good you almost know how it feels to be in Kara's place. The Final Showdown was so good I am pretty sure I actually said the word "WOW", out loud, and the answer to the clues is nothing I ever would have guessed! I know I am going to read this book again and again, and would suggest you go out and buy this the day it comes out!
