Pretty Little Liars meets Medium in this fast-paced thriller and fantastic YA debut from a New York Times bestselling author.

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?

About the Author:

Victoria Laurie is a New York Times bestselling adult mystery author and a former professional psychic intuitive. Both careers have served her beautifully in crafting her young adult debut, When. She lives and writes in Michigan.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 8 Up—Maddie is a 16-year-old girl who sees specific death dates written on the foreheads of everyone she sees, whether in person, on television, or in photographs. After suffering the tragic loss of her father at a young age, Maddie and her mother eke out an existence in suburban New Jersey with Maddie doing "readings" for clients to supplement their income. But when children for whom Maddie has predicted the death date disappear, she becomes a prime suspect in the FBI's investigation. How can she prove that she wasn't involved in their deaths when she knew about them beforehand? The suspenseful plot is perfectly paced, the characters are well rounded, and the story line is unique. Narration, provided by Whitney Dykhouse, adds to the appeal of the novel with distinctive voices and lively inflection throughout. VERDICT A delightful listen overall, this audiobook is a great recommendation for reluctant readers as well as a strong new addition to any library, teen or adult.—Tara Hixon, Piedmont High School, OK
