"The Body Finder" by Kimberly Derting [5]

Violet Ambrose is grappling with two major issues: Jay Heaton and her morbid secret ability. While the sixteen-year-old is confused by her new feelings for her best friend since childhood, she is more disturbed by her 'power' to sense dead bodies - or at least those that have been murdered. Since she was a little girl, she has felt the echoes the dead leave behind in the world ... and the imprints that attach to their killers.

Violet has never considered her strange talent to be a gift; it mostly just led her to find dead birds her cat left for her. But now a serial killer is terrorizing her small town, and the echoes of the local girls he's claimed haunt her daily, Violet realizes she might be the only person who can stop him.

Despite his fierce protectiveness over her, Jay reluctantly agrees to help Violet find the murderer - and Violet is unnerved by her hope that Jay's intentions are much more than friendly. But even as she's falling intensely in love, Violet is getting closer and closer to discovering a killer ... and becoming his prey herself.

Oh Wow this book was truly amazing for a first novel, it is definitely a must read.
So it's about a young girl who has the ability to find dead people by the echoes they leave behind. It is also about the blooming relationship between her best friend Jay and herself. I really enjoyed the way the author has turned a life long friendship and has slowly changed the characters feelings to realize that they are falling in love with each other and how they react to these feelings.

A love story and a thrilling suspense novel all wrapped into one. You won't want too put it down until you've completely finished it.

Beautiful front cover and really well written, a great book for young adults{16 and over}. I would love the author to write a second novel to this book.

I rate this book 5 stars.
