Teen Event | Lisa McMann | Crash

01/08/2013 7:00 pm
Launch Party | Lisa McMann: Crash
Bad Kitty School Daze
Lisa McMann, the bestselling author of the Wake trilogy, visits to launch Crash, the first book in her new supernatural teen series.

Jules lives with her family above their restaurant, which means she smells like pizza most of the time and drives their double-meatball-shaped food truck to school. It's not a recipe for popularity, but she can handle that. What she can't handle is the recurring vision that haunts her. Over and over, Jules sees a careening truck hit a building and explode, and nine body bags in the snow. The vision is everywhere—on billboards, television screens, windows—and she's the only one who sees it. And the more she sees it, the more she "sees." The vision is giving her clues, and soon Jules knows what she has to do. Because now she can see the face in one of the body bags, and it's someone she knows. Someone she has been in love with for as long as she can remember.
