Review: Glimpse by Stacey Wallace Benefiel

SUMMARY (Amazon)

Zellie Wells has a devastating crush on Avery Adams, the son of her mom’s high school sweetheart. At her sixteenth birthday party, held in the basement of her dad’s church, she finally finds the courage to talk to him. Turns out, the devastating crush is mutual.

As Avery takes her hand and leads her out onto the makeshift dance floor, Zellie is overwhelmed by her first vision of his death; shocking because not only are they both covered in his blood, but they’re old, like thirty-five, and she is pregnant.

Afraid to tell anyone about the vision, (she’d just be labeled a freaky black magic witch, right?) Zellie keeps the knowledge of Avery’s future to herself and tries to act like any other teenager in love. When they get caught on their way to a secret rendezvous by her mom and his dad, they are forbidden to see each other.

Convinced that their parents are freaking out unnecessarily, Avery and Zellie vow to be together no matter what. They continue their relationship in secret until Zellie learns that their parents are just trying to prevent her and Avery from suffering like they did. The visions are hereditary, they’re dangerous, and if they stay together the visions will come true.

Now Zellie must choose between severing all ties with Avery, like her mom did to prevent his father’s death, and finding a way to change Avery’s future..

This was a very cute paranormal love story. It's almost like Romeo and Juliet in a way because Zellie and Avery want to be together so much, but their families are so against it. It causes you to root for Zellie and Avery and their young passionate love story. Zellie Wells has definitely been added to my list of favorite characters of all times!

This was a very quick and easy read and literally took 24 hours to read. The story never got boring, there were too many twists and turns! What I liked a lot was the Christianity that Stacey put in here. She kept it real with the teenage love story, but brought up God quite a bit (Zellie's dad is a pastor) and I enjoyed that.

I would recommend this for older YA audiences because of the death and sexual scenes in here. There's not many and they are not graphic, but it's best suited for the older crowd. Go read this ASAP, you will not be disappointed!



Loved it! Go read it right now!
