SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH KAYLEE CAVANAUGH
She doesn't see dead people, but...
She senses when someone near her is about to die. And when that happens, a force beyond her control compels her to scream bloody murder. Literally.
Kaylee just wants to enjoy having caught the attention of the hottest guy in school. But a normal date is hard to come by when Nash seems to know more about her need to scream than she does. And when classmates start dropping dead for no apparent reason, only Kaylee knows who'll be next.

I am far, far from being a teen, but I really enjoyed this first book of the series. Rachel Vincent is an excellent writer and the main character, as well as all the others, are nicely realized.
One of my favorite genres is urban fantasy (I think that's the term for paranormal in a realistic setting), and this book accomplishes that very well. So well that I got involved in the lives of teenagers in high school, something that I could relate to like Buffy, the vampire killer.
Amanda Ronconi does a superior job bringing the characters to life.
I am on to the next one in the series.
Not sure yet. I am willing to try the second book.
I did not see that coming.
I listen to audiobooks when I workout and this one made the time fly by. I got so swept up in the story that I would be caught off guard when the time hit zero. Definitely happy I found this series.
Love this site! I have a very busy job, so listening to audio books enables me to keep up on great stories!
Amanda is one of my favorite narrators. But her voice for Tod was painful. Painful and didn't even sound comfortable for her to do!
When Kaylee and Nash work their magic together, that was pretty cool! I'm trying to picture this scream, it seems to take a while...crazy! Oh and a super cool ending too!
I'm glad I took advantage of freebie My Soul to Lose, because I probably wouldn't have gotten this book otherwise. The whole banshee thing never interested me, but I needed to know what was up with that screaming thing she did in My Soul to Lose. I'm glad I got this!
I loved the way the story slowly developed,
and then came rushing at you with full force twist you never
The only thing close to this book that I have read would be the "House of Night" first book
Amanda Roconi, did both the Kaylee and Nash really well but i liked nash
Well, after the first few minutes i really couldn't quit listening.
I am really enjoying the rest of the series
I mostly listen on my commute. I love Sci-fi, mystery thrillers, vampire love stories, great girlfriend stories and political thrillers.
I loved this YA novel and look forward to the rest of the series. It was a good storyline, although it was predictable at times. The writer and narrator still kept me wanting to find out how it ends and who was behind it all.
I've listened to quite a few audiobooks, but My Soul to Take ranks among the top three.
Kaylee saving her cousin, Sophie's, soul.
Yes, but I couldn't devote that much time to one sitting!
Amanda Ronconi does such an excellent rendering of the different voices. I felt like I was listening to a cast of characters.
Rachel Vincent really delivers a unique and interesting story with this first installment of the soul screamers series. With a couple of banshees and a grim reaper in tow, these intrepid teens investigate untimely deaths of teenaged girls and the convoluted mystery leads back to an unexpected source. Unlike many amateur sleuths, this young soul screamer really cares about the fallen girls and doggedly pursues their killer.
Amanda Ronconi does a wonderful job voicing the characters. I loved her previous work as the southern voices in Molly Harper's vampire and werewolf series. In fact, I purchased this book because she was reading it. Excellent work, unique characterizations and a youthful tenor to the teens adds to the overall performance.
I find most books quite predictable but this story had a few twists I didn't expect and went in a different direction I found quite refreshing. I didn't realize it was a teen book but it was an easy read and despite some of the juvenile behaviors was enjoyable over all.
I think I might have liked this story better if I had read it instead of listening to the audible. The narrator was ok but nothing to write home about. I thought the story had good merit. It's something different when the market has been flooded with vampire and werewolf stories, but the main character kinda annoyed me up until the last few chapters when she actually got a back bone. She seemed very whiny and boy crazy in the first part of the book. I think the next book will be better because she has found out what she is and much of the extent of her abilities. It's a good read if you can get past her whiny attitude in the first part of the book.
