This was a great book because it kept me guessing as to who was the bad guy. It truly surprised me. Not going to say more. It was quite the ride. If you like to live through a character and experience life as a teenager, this one does it just like a kid would, successes, mistakes, highs and lows. It even has a goofy best friend. ( )

Maddie Flynn is 16, a Jr in high school, and shy. She has a best friend named Stubby and that’s it. Her mom is an alcoholic and her uncle is a lawyer, but lives a couple of hours away. Ever since her dad died, she’s been taking care of herself and her mom. But there’s one thing I didn’t tell you about Maddie. She can see the date a person dies by looking at their forehead. That’s where the numbers are and when she was little she had no idea that’s what they were or that she was the only person who could see them. Her dad’s death was the catalyst for knowing what the numbers were. Because the date he died matched the numbers she saw.

She and her mom earn some extra money to help support themselves by reading people their numbers. Or someone in the family since Maddie can see the numbers in photos and video as well. She sees them all unless they’re too far away or have something covering their forehead. But it’s these readings that land her in trouble with law enforcement when kids loosely connected to her are kidnapped then brutally murdered. How is she going to prove her innocence now?

Wow. I thought the blurb was interesting, but I had no idea how compelling this story would turn out to be. I couldn’t put it down. Poor Maddie. Her life has been hard, but it’s about to get a whole lot harder. The kidnappings, the murders, the investigation are a shitton to deal with, but there’s also her alcoholic mom on top of that. And on top of THAT are the bullies at school. So much crap coming at her on all sides, but she handles it fairly well. Sort of. I mean, she’s still only 16 so it’s okay that she loses it a few times. I think anyone would, really. Or just go on a shooting spree. She does not do that, btw.

The characters, the world, the pacing, and Maddie’s voice make this a sweet spot story. Add in a murderer that’s hard to pin down and you get a fantastic paranormal mystery. I was sad, mad, and enraged throughout the book. The one thing I was not? Bored. If you like YA Paranormal Murder Mysteries with tons of heart then do not pass this one up. ( )

I absolutely loved the book Wh3n by Victoria Laurie, I found it an interesting mix of fantasy and realistic fiction, middle schoolers would be interested in, it is a chapter book. The main character, Maddie Flynn, a gifted and cursed, a junior in high-school, has a deceased father and a drunk for a mother. Maddie gets framed for committing a series of murders due to her blessing and a curse gift- seeing death dates. I love the internal conflict that Maddie has to overcome with this huge accusation not to mention find out who is really killing her friends. Will Maddie be the killer's next victim? If I was going to teach this book, I would first start with teaching the students about genre and having them connect this book to the genre of fiction. Then, I go into reading comprehension questions probably not every chapter but for every five chapters or so. Just making sure the students were understanding the book. The intended audience is probably 7-12 graders there isn't anything too graphic within the novel, however there is murder within the book, I would just give a cautionary warning to my students before they picked up this book to read. I loved how the author twisted the book so much you never would guess the events that happen in this book. I loved this book so much, I finished it in a day! I found this story and the plot so captivating. I would allow any of my students to read this book, and welcome their critiques. (compound)

Review first published on my blog, Pieces of Whimsy

4.5/5

I'll be honest, I wasn't expecting a whole lot when I started this book. I thought it sounded like an interesting story idea, but I wasn't sure how it would all come together. .. it came together very well! I was pleasantly surprised by the story and characters and once I started, I could not stop reading!

When centres around Maddie, a young girl with the ability to see people's 'death dates'; the day they are going to die. This leads to all sorts of trouble when a boy whose death date she predicted turns up murdered and Maddie becomes the lead suspect in his murder investigation.

The mystery and characters in When are just fantastic! Everyone has their own depth and story and each character has their own voice. And there were so many different connections and cross-overs between events and characters which made the story all the more enjoyable. Now, as for the mystery.. that was just really clever. I thought I had everything figured out then another piece of evidence would turn up, or something else would be uncovered and I would change my mind, still completely sure I had it right. I didn't. This story led me on a merry chase and I loved that things were never as straight forward as they seemed. I love a book that throws surprises my way and always keeps me guessing, and When definitely delivered on that front!

When is a really compelling read. Victoria Laurie did a fantastic job of crafting an emotional, page-turning read, with a thrilling mystery plot that always kept me guessing. This is a great read for mystery lovers, and for anyone who enjoys compelling YA stories! ( )
