If I Die

Rachel Vincent
If I Die (Soul Screamers, #5)
The entire school's talking about the gorgeous new math teacher, Mr. Beck. Everyone except Kaylee Cavanaugh. After all, Kaylee's no ordinary high-school junior. She's a banshee—she screams when someone dies.
But the next scream might be for Kaylee.
Yeah—it's a shock to her, too. So to distract herself, Kaylee's going to save every girl in school. Because that hot new teacher is really an incubus who feeds on the desire of unsuspecting students. The only girls immune to his lure are Kaylee and Sabine, her boyfriend's needy ex-girlfriend. Now the unlikely allies have to get rid of Mr. Beck…before he discovers they aren't quite human, either.
But Kaylee's borrowed lifeline is nearing its end. And those who care about her will do anything to save her life.
Can I just say that I LOVED THIS BOOK. Like, really, really loved it. There was lots and lots of Tod, and Kaylee trying to do her whole "save the world" thing, and the plot was scary and fascinating and I loved it!!!

So, yeah, it does kind of start off with Kaylee finding out she's gonna die. SO that makes the whole book kind of depressing and urgent. She's trying to get everything in that she can before she dies (only eating junk food, not doing her homework, etc.). To distract herself she's found a mission- to get rid of her incubus (not the band) math teacher. She wants to remove him, so that Emma will be safe(ish) after Kaylee dies. There's lots of romance, and even some help for Sabine, and lots and lots of Tod. I like Tod... Anyways, I adored the plot, because it really kept me on my toes the whole time. I read the book in a day, because I just had to know what was gonna happen.

Now can I talk about how much I love Tod? Yes? OK so he's amazing. Like flat out, hands down, I love him, amazing. He's protective and he will do anything to help Kaylee. He even made sure her dad was safe. How sweet is that? Especially considering Mr. Cavenaugh doesn't really like Tod. And Kaylee. She just can't pass up the opportunity to help others. She hates hurting people, even if she has to. She's kind of like goodness personified. However, she can stand her own when people (Sabine) are cruel to her. It's pretty awesome. I still love Emma, and I hate Sabine just a tiny bit less (I do still hate her, though). I adore Harmony Hudson (Nash & Tod's mom), but I think Nash is kind of a disaster. I'm really not sure why Tod got all the "good guy" genes in the family.

Again, I love the cover!!! Soooo pretty. Even though cover Kaylee kind of has a weird look on her face...

I'm obviously giving this one 5 stars, too. I love Tod the Soul Screamers series. I highly recommend it to all people who are literate.
