If I Die (Soul Screamers, #5)

If I Die (Soul Screamers, #5) - Rachel Vincent,  Amanda Ronconi It's been awhile since I've read such an amazing book. This definitely has earned 5+ stars from me.

We have the same cast of characters in this installment of the series. Sabine is her usual bucolic self, although somewhat more moderate - perhaps a touch of sensitivity? Emma is a faithful, honest friend. Kaylee's dad and Harmony are beautiful background brushstrokes. And the Hudson boys' true colors are revealed.

And Kaylee, well, she learns that a moment is only a moment long. Watching her measure them out bit by bit as the end of her life approaches is just, well, amazing. This particular story is such an incredible look at the way we evaluate our lives, and how we decide in the end what is important and what is not. I am so touched at the way Kaylee was able to be honest with herself so deeply, and make decisions that set her and those around her on a path to freedom and healing.

This is not a story about a big battle with evil demons. This is a look at a girl who finally has to just let go. Control freaks everywhere should take note. Kaylee finally cries and lets her heart decide some things. And that ending! Definitely tissue worthy!

This story will not disappoint you. Read it right now.
