Wow, what a book! The Body Finder is a romance and a thriller all rolled up into a gripping story. This book is rather intense, so if you don't like REALLY creepy stories, you may want to skip this one.
However, if you liked The Forest of Hands and Teeth, and other novels that creep out other kids, you will love The Body Finder.
Violet has a secret ability - she knows where dead people and animals are buried just by being in their vacinity. She also can tell who has killed anyone by the vibes they give off. Since she was a little girl, she has had this ability to sense death.
But now, there is a serial killer and it is important to stop him. The police are on the case, but the killer is still at large. Violet wants to use her abilities to stop the killer but will this prove too dangerous?
The romance in this book, while really quite sweet, is also intense in parts, so I would recommend this novel for only mature eighth graders.
