Snap


Snap by Carol Snow
rating 8/10

Madison Sabatini thought she knew who she was: an almost-sophomore with a bright future. The newest photographer on her school paper. A shopaholic with great hair and a fabulous wardrobe. Then, in a flash, everything changed.

Now she's stuck in Sandyland, a gloomy beach town in the middle of nowhere, living with her parents in a crappy hotel "suite." Instead of spending the summer with her friends at home, she's hanging out with pink-haired Delilah, an artist who works in a shop called Psychic Photo, and a skater boy named Duncan who's totally not her type. Except, maybe he is . . .
Determined to make the best of things, Madison throws herself into her one passion: photography. But when strange figures start appearing in her pictures - people who weren't there when she snapped the shots, people who are later reported dead - she begins to question everything about who she is . . . and who she wishes she could be.


I wasn't quite sure how Carol Snow would do with this book. I wasn't too impressed with Switch, but Snap was different. I thought it was pretty good.
If your expecting Snap to be mysterious and scary, it's really not. It is a little, but mostly its about other things. The description is a little decieving. For the most part, the paranormal parts tied in with the rest pretty well. Anyway, snap was pretty original. At times, Madison could be a little over the top and dramatic. (SPOILER!!) Also, towards the end she thought the was going to die and she took it a little too well. But mostly, Snap was a good book. The story was good and creative.
