Teen Review: “The Body Finder” by Kimberly Derting

From a young age, Violet Ambrose has been able to sense dead things or, more accurately, murdered things. Usually it is just animals that have been killed by a predator, but until they are buried, she can not rest. Now with a serial killer on the loose in town, Violet can use her powers to help the young girls he is targeting. Her best friend from childhood, Jay, is not so happy about what she is doing. His being overprotective is what finally gets him to help, only if it is just to keep an eye on her. Can Violet use her powers to find the killer, or will she be the next one on his list? This mystery, with its tales of high school life, is a gripping read. It even has a twist ending that left me shocked for a page or two.
