With a serial killer at large and the body count rising, my first thought was that this would be aimed at older teens. Now that I've read it though, I'd say it was more for younger teens. There's an edge of The Disney Channel's version of high school here, although the serial killer is hardly toothless.
Violet is worried about normal things for a teen. Boys, school, lack of coolness. She and her long-time best friend are leaning towards becoming more than just friends and that takes up a huge amount of her mental time... And she has the secret ability to find dead things. It's not something she's happy about, but she can't help but know where they are. Meanwhile, a serial killer is escalating in the area, which a girl with her abilities can't help but notice, even if she's noticing and thinking about her would-be boyfriend at the same time.
The narrator isn't the best with additional voices, but otherwise I thought she was fine. Check the sample!
Overall, I'd say this book was good but not great. I'm in no hurry to listen to the next book in the series, but I liked this well enough while I was listening.
