Review - Don't Die, Dragonfly

This is the synopsis from Amazon:

After getting kicked out of school and sent to live with her grandmother, Sabine Rose is determined to become a "normal" teenage girl. She hides her psychic powers from everyone, even from her grandmother Nona, who also has "the gift." Having a job at the school newspaper and friends like Penny-Love, a popular cheerleader, have helped Sabine fit in at her new school. She has even managed to catch the eye of the adorable Josh DeMarco. Yet, Sabine can't seem to get the bossy voice of Opal, her spirit guide, out of her head . . . or the disturbing images of a girl with a dragonfly tattoo. Suspected of a crime she didn't commit, Sabine must find the strength to defend herself and, later, save a friend from certain danger.

My review: 4 stars

Plot: This book bored me at first, unfortunately. However once I dug into it, I couldn't stop reading! The plot twists and turns all the way until the abrupt ending which leaves you dying for the next book.

Characters: Sabine is a good main character, who has both virtues and flaws alike. She has strong friends as well, and learns to connect with them to help her with her troubles.

Setting: Her house is sporadic, like herself, which adds to her unique ability. Also the school is a strong setting for the crime she investigates.

Overall: I would definitely read this book if you get the chance! I am hoping to get my hands on the next one asap :)

    My answer for FF- Does Across the Universe count as sci-fi? I mostly stick with paranormal, fantasy and contemporary.
