KIRKUS REVIEW

A reporter with psychic powers gets no respect.

Both Claire Abbott and her mother have the ability to see things, a power Claire has repeatedly demonstrated in the past (Playing With Fire, 2015, etc.). Now Claire has a dream that a bomb planted at the local high school kills her when it explodes. When she arrives at the school, it’s being searched following a telephoned bomb threat. As she watches, Claire recognizes a boy she saw in her dream run inside. Another student tells Claire she overheard Tyler, her lab partner, talking about planting a bomb. The police and their bomb-sniffing dogs find nothing, but Claire is so certain she’s right that she insists the school remain evacuated and be searched again. As a result, she’s banned from all local schools, the cops refuse to talk to her, and she loses her supporters and her job. Only her boyfriend supports her. What can this Cassandra do to save the lives of all those skeptics?

A mad dash from start to finish, this latest entry in the Rapid Reads series is great for people who crave excitement but have short attention spans.
