When a teen is abducted, her best friend does everything within her power to find her in the fascinating young adult paranormal novel, Dying Thoughts: Fourth Week by Joey Paul. Tara inherited an extraordinary talent from her mother. She has the ability to see the last moments of somebody's death just by touching something that belonged to them. Following in her mother's footsteps, Tara works with the police to solve murders. When her best friend, Kaolin, is kidnapped, Tara wants to help the police find her, but the only way she can is if Kaolin dies. Unfortunately, when Tara picks up Kaolin's phone, she witnesses Kaolin's murder. Shocked and heartbroken, Tara ignores her father and the Detective Inspector and starts investigating on her own. However, in an unprecedented event, every time Tara watches Kaolin die, her death is different. Is it possible Kaolin is still alive? If she is, can Tara find her before it is too late?
Dying Thoughts: Fourth Week by Joey Paul is a stunning young adult paranormal novel. Superbly written, the story includes a compelling plot, a suspenseful storyline, and solid characters. Narrated by the main character Tara, the book realistically depicts the audacious and rebellious disposition of an opinionated teenage girl perfectly. Even though she is obviously self-involved and misguided about her future, Tara is likable. Because her character is so well developed, it is easy to relate to her personality. Including a cheeky heroine, exciting scenes, and an element of the paranormal, it is an extraordinary novel that will delight everyone who loves a thrilling mystery.
