   On the outside, Stacey is an average teenage girl. However, there's one problem: she's psychic. Every night, Stacey has nightmares about the death of her best friend, Drea. The last time this happened, someone close to her heart died. Determined to right the wrongs she did when she kept her gift quiet and did nothing to help, Stacey soon finds herself in a world of mystery and adventure, where one wrong move could kill her best friend. Despite being no stranger to magic, Stacey is soon faced with the worrying fact that magic has its limits and that even witches cant save the world all the time.

I absolutely adored this book. Personally, I think it was an amazing new read into a world rarely explored by me.

Firstly, BIFN had an wonderful plot. It was fast enough to be interesting, yet not too fast that you had to keep on looking back to see who each person was and what they were going on about. The plot was also full of mystery and deceit, my favourite kind of story.

Another good point, was the characters. You found yourself really empathizing with them, like Drea and her cheating boyfriend and Stacey with her malfunctioning psychic powers and night-time problems.

Lastly, you always felt part of their world, even after you had finished the book. You found yourself wanting to slap some characters, and hug others. You find yourself not wanting to put the book down night and day. You find yourself promising only one more paragraph, whilst secretly hoping that it will never end and knowing that you mean to break your pledge in a few moments when the next character finds themselves in a life-or-death situation.

The only problem that I found with it, was that about three quarters of the way through the book, I realised who the murdering stalker person was. After that, the book wasn’t as fun, however, this had given me another incentive to read on: to find out if I was right.

Despite the bad point, I still found this a remarkable new read.

Rating Out Of 5

  1. I read the second book and it gave so much away I didn't want to read the first and then the third and Stacey kind of got...annoying. Didn't finish, but if you do love it, then please, by all means.
