MrsNorthman's Review 
"All you have to do is listen."
This story is a reminder that things can change in the blink of an eye.  Eloise, her husband and two teenage daughters are in a horrific car accident one morning on the way to dropping their girls off at school.  After being in a coma for weeks, Eloise wakes up to the harsh reality that her husband and oldest daughter are dead and her youngest is in a catatonic state. You can't help but to admire Eloise's strength in the situation.  She sees her daughter struggling and does what she needs to, to pick up the pieces and move on with their lives. 
Since the accident, strange things have been happening to Eloise  though. She's been having visions. Visions of girls in frightening situations. Somehow she knows details about what happened to them and where they can be found.  She has no choice, but to go to the police with the information she has.  But, are they going to think she's crazy or involved somehow?
For being such a short story, there was a ton of action packed in and great characters.  I would love a full length novel about Eloise and Amanda.  It was heartbreaking, suspenseful and left me excited to read the next book.
4/5 Fangs
