Maddie Fynn is a shy high school junior, cursed with an eerie intuitive ability: she sees a series of unique digits hovering above the foreheads of each person she encounters. Her earliest memories are marked by these numbers, but it takes her father's premature death for Maddie and her family to realize that these mysterious digits are actually death dates, and just like birthdays, everyone has one. Forced by her alcoholic mother to use her ability to make extra money, Maddie identifies the quickly approaching death date of one client's young son, but because her ability only allows her to see the when and not the how, she's unable to offer any more insight. When the boy goes missing on that exact date, law enforcement turns to Maddie. Soon, Maddie is entangled in a homicide investigation, and more young people disappear and are later found murdered. A suspect for the investigation, a target for the murderer, and attracting the attentions of a mysterious young admirer who may be connected to it all, Maddie's whole existence is about to be turned upside down. Can she right things before it's too late?

Little late night reading before bed 💕 Has anyone else read this one? It‘s reminding me of Numbers by Rachel Ward, but only 24 pages in, I don‘t have too much else to say.

I have just started reading the novel “When”, by Victoria Laurie! “When” is a mystery novel. So far, not much has happened but I can tell that it is going to pick up soon. I am really excited to finish this read!

MrsBabki I have had a few students give up on this one - I really liked it. I hope you finish. 1y
MrsBabki Wait...did you finish or are you one of the ones that gave up 🤪. I‘m old - I forget things 1y

Maddi is a 16year old girl who has a special ability but to her a cures she can't get rid of. If you like action mistery and little bit of romance this is a great book for you.read the short book when

MissYaremcio What a fascinating book! Although you were missing some of the requirements for the post and there were some spelling and punctuation errors, overall this captured the novel well! 2y

This is only the 2nd book this year to be on my Goodreads "favorites" shelf, & they were both YA! Maddie can see when anyone will die, but when there is a murder investigation, she's thrown into the middle. The unique premise is strengthened by the character development of major & minor characters. Maddie's naivete was annoying at times, but it felt realistic. 100% recommend if you're looking for a heart-pounding thriller & coming-of-age story!

BookHoarder32 At first I thought you were talking about this one that I read a long time ago -> 3y
MrBook Great review! 3y
Kaylamburson Ohhh, that also sounds interesting (and similar). Did you enjoy it? Worth the read? @BookHoarder32 3y
BookHoarder32 I remember it being good. Looks like it's a trilogy, but I only read the first. 3y

This book is pretty awesome. It has a supernatural element and a crazy mystery and some pretty lovable characters. It makes you think about the burden of knowing when you or your loved ones will die - what specific date and how this could be used for bad intentions. It was really unique and there wasn‘t a single dull moment.

Best book I‘ve read this year. It‘s a story about a girl who has a special gift. It makes for a very suspenseful, mysterious, and a really crazy page turner. Definitely a pick!

Only on page 165 but, I‘m loving this book. The suspense and mystery are outstanding. It‘s about a female protagonist “Maddy” who sees death dates. Maddy and her friend Arnold “Stubby” are trying to figure out the deaths of 2 teenagers that Maddie saw their dates only a week or two before. The Federals are trying to pin it on them. Definitely a book to read. Can‘t wait to finish.

CarterD Sounds really good i might read this in the future 3y

fink Is this a book you can read in a day? Because I need a good quick book 3y
Drewster @Aeris it‘s about a 3-7ish day read. Unless you buckle down and read for 8hr‘s. it‘s about 310 pages 3y

I absolutely loved this book! I couldn‘t put it down. The main character, Maddie, has the ability to see a person‘s death date. This gift of hers gets her and her best friend Stubby into some serious trouble. The story moves pretty fast from that point and it is a constant on the edge of your seat thriller. I highly recommend.
My fellow book lovers I have one question. Would you want Maddie to tell you your death date?

Just finished! My second book of 2018 😊 it was good, I'm just not usually into reading a lot of young adult books, it was a very easy read but also kept me hooked the entire time. I do recommend especially to those who enjoy young adult suspense!

Though slightly chewed up by my dog (who climbed on to a desk just to get this tasty book), it was an amazing read! I have read it 3 times in the past month, and it never seems to get old! It's a perfect beach read, only taking a few short hours to read, and you get lost in it, to the point where you see no words, but a picture unfolding in your head, better than the movies. 5/5 stars! #fantasy #summerread #beachread #mystery #YAnovel #reread

Wow! I jus finished this great YA mystery novel. As a middle school librarian I like to read what my students are being offered and this was a true winner. I enjoy recommending books and discussing books with my students. I cannot wait to recommend When and have a discussion about it. It was hard to put down. It kept me guessing. The end wasn't my favorite but it wasn't so related to the bulk of the book. Well written and suspenseful.

Great YA mystery! My students have loved this, there is a waiting list to check it out from the library.

Peddler410 Have you read Numbers, I think the author is Ward? This sounds very similar. 5y

(3.5 stars) Three Thoughts 1) an interesting story with a good narrator and fast pace 2) I recall liking this book but it's not sticking in my head as clear as other books 3) could have used a little more romance with a more complex mystery

BethFishReads Who was the narrator? 5y

I read this book in one day. I just couldn't put it down. I loved the mystery and trying to figure out who had done it. This is a fast paced read that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I think it would have been a great mini series.
