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.

thanks to some unique plot elements, and a compelling heroine - I'm not normally a fan of first-person POV, but I really enjoyed this story. Kaylee wrestles with some real emotions and difficulties without crossing into whining, and her sense of humor provides a great contrast to the darker elements of the story.
Looking forward to the sequel!
Kaylee Cavanaugh knows there is something wrong with her. Maybe she's even dying. She can definitely tell when people around her are about to die. Unfortunately, all she can do when she senses their imminent death is scream at the top of her lungs. And now, Kaylee's caught the attention of the hottest guy in school and she can't even enjoy it because teenage girls are dropping dead all around her. I won't go into exactly what Kaylee's powers are so that I don't spoil it for anybody who decides to listen.
I just finished listening to this book and really enjoyed it. It's definitely a teen book but it was fun. Once the story got to going, I wanted to sit in the driveway and keep listening to the book. It's narrated by Amanda Ronconi. She was fantastic. I think half of what made this such a good listen was her narrating skills.
I like Rachel Vincent's "were-panther" series, so thought I would give this a try - I really enjoyed it! Be sure to listen to the "prequel", as it provides back story. This one started a little slow, but it definitely caught my interest, and I wanted to know what happened next. And boy - what happened next! I don't want to give anything away, but will just say - I was very surprised and intrigued when we finally learned what was going on with Kaylee - and I can't wait to find out what happens next!
My Soul to Take really needs a prologue to explain the back story so that this book makes sense. The first book, My Soul to Lose, really doesn't stand on it's own and would be better as a prologue in My Soul to Take.
This book is great from the beginning to the end! I started listening to it again right after I finished and I never do that.
I will download any book narrated by Amanda Ronconi. Please give us more! The rest of the books in this series really only have the saving grace of being read by Amanda Ronconi.
Paranormal-urban fantasy book lover!
All the plot twists and the end which I did not see coming!
The very end
I really just bought this book because of Amanda Ronconi, I love her work. I thought the book might be too juvenile but to my surprise I really enjoyed it. Listened to it straight through. I'm happy Amanda Ronconi's work led me to this series. I wouldn't have bought it otherwise.
Copy and Pasted from My other review of another Book in the series
This book series falls under supernatural, with out being "same stuff, different day". There's alot of fun in it and Vincent created a world that you can get lost in... Probably a series for younger readers and maybe a little geared for the female reader, never the less... I, a 30 y/o male, read&listen to a wide range of SiFi/Fantasy: from Harry Potter to Interview with a Vampire to Harry Dresden. I enjoy this and It's something other then twilight to share with my 14y/o sister.
Amanda Ronconi is amazing and brings the characters and the world to life for me.
I love to read... love to listen while I walk my dog, Sally Jo.
The narrator is excellent! She really worked to keep the characters believable and interesting. I enjoy stories that are different and about "real" people. I do not hesitate to recommend this series of books -- they are fun, great to listen to, and easy to get involved with. I look forward to the next book.
Audible, Audible, Audible, if Amazon can tag this as a TEEN novel, why can't you? Maybe I should have investigated more, but would it be that hard? I feel like I wasted a credit.
None of that is the author's fault however. I would have LOVED this book when I was a teen or young adult, so I gave it four stars. I really liked the narrator too.
