Sixteen-year-old Trinity Monsour wants nothing more than to live a normal life. But that isn’t as easy as it seems. Trinity is different. She is special. She sees visions, and for those she’s seen, it’s already too late. Trinity arrives on her aunt’s doorstep in New Orleans with virtually no knowledge of her mysterious heritage. She begins settling into life at a new school and even starts making friends. But all too quickly her dreams accelerate; twisted, terrifying visions of a girl locked in a dark room. And when the head cheerleader, Jessica, goes missing, Trinity knows she has no choice but to step forward with what she’s seen.But people believe that Trinity has information about Jessica’s disappearance not because of a dream, but because she is involved. She is kind-of dating Jessica’s ex-boyfriend, Chase, and Jessica did pull a nasty prank on Trinity. Revenge seems like the likeliest scenario. Nothing prepares Trinity for the dark odyssey that ensues while searching for Jessica, including the surprising romance she finds with Chase, or the shocking truths she learns, not just about the girl who has gone missing, but the past that has been hidden from her.

At first I though this would be a standard young adult novel about a high school kid growing up, spending way too much time thinking about boys with a hint of what happened to her parents mystery thr...

It's a paranormal mystery that takes place in New Orleans, and it has a heavy dose of romance laced throughout the story.The murder mystery is well done, and despite a few minor typos, the writing is good, and the first person narrative i...
Shattered Dreams was not at all what I expected. It was ten times better! From the very first page I was hooked and I could not put it down.Trinity is an awesome main character. She is brave, funny, smart, kind, and (my favorite thing) kind of bad ass. She is not afraid to be disliked by the pop...
