A new YA fantasy from award-winning author of SCARS and HUNTED Cheryl Rainfield.

Visions can kill you. Would you risk your life to save someone else’s?

Kate sees psychic visions of the future and the past—but only when she's having an asthma attack. When she "sees" her sister being beaten, she needs more visions to try to save her, along with a suicidal classmate—but triggering her asthma could kill her. Parallel Visions is the story of one brave, caring girl whose unusual gifts put her own life in danger.



This is a quick read about Kate, a lifelong asthma sufferer who sees visions whenever an attack strikes.  She's able to see the past as well as the future, but her ability doesn't do a lot of good when no one believes that what she sees is real.

She longs to be a normal teen whose family doesn't hover 24/7 and whose not always known as the "sick girl" at school, especially around Gil, the guy she's crushing on.  When Kate suffers multiple attacks in one day and sees two different life threatening situations, one involving her sister and the other, someone close to Gil, she'll have to decide if telling him about her ability is worth risking their friendship.  Not wanting either person to suffer, Kate figures out how to bring on the visions in an effort to use her "weakness" to help, but each time she does, she poses an even greater risk to her own life.


This was my first book by author Cheryl Rainfield (who graciously provided an e-book copy for review) and I found her writing style to be creative and enjoyable.  I liked that Kate was concerned about others and willing to do whatever she could to help them, even if the cost to her was great. 

Domestic abuse, bullying, rape and suicide are all relevant issues addressed in this book.

Because of Miss Bridgerton (Rokesbys & Bridgertons, #1) by Julia Quinn

Because of Miss Bridgerton (Rokesbys & Bridgertons, #1) Author: Julia Quinn Publication: March 29, 2016 By: Avon Amazon | B&N | Goodreads   Sometimes you find love in the most unexpected of places... This is not one of those times. Everyone expects Billie Bridgerton to marry one of the Rokesby brothers. The two families have been neighbors for centuries, and as a child the tomboyish Billie ran wild with Edward and Andrew. Either one would make a perfect husband... someday.   Sometimes you fall in love with exactly the person you think you should...   Or not. There is only one Rokesby Billie absolutely cannot tolerate, and that is George. He may be the eldest and heir to the earldom, but he's arrogant, annoying, and she's absolutely certain he detests her. Which is perfectly convenient, as she can't stand the sight of him, either.   But sometimes fate has a wicked sense of humor... Because when Billie and George are quite literall
