Gasp (Visions #3) by Lisa McMann

After figuring out and acting on Sawyer's vision, Jules now believes that someone involved in the school shooting may have been "passed" the vision curse.  She feels responsible to whoever that might be because the visions started with her.  So Jules, Sawyer, Rowan, Trey, and Ben set out to find all the victims and question them.  When that person is found, figuring out the vision isn't going to be as easy as it was the first two times.  The person having the vision isn't exactly being cooperative, and with little to go on it's going to be almost impossible.  With time running low, are they about to find out what happens when they can't stop a vision from coming true?

Oh how I loved this series!!  The characters is what truly did it for me.  I can't get enough of Jules' silliness, dry humor, and list making.  I love the sibling relationships AND the romantic relationships.  I don't even think it really mattered what did or didn't happen with the plot because I was just so in love with the people in this book.

It's hard to speak a lot about the plot because I feel like the publisher's description is pretty vague.  I will say there is another vision (or more) involved.  The person having the visions is not exactly cooperative and it makes the hunting of the vision even more frustrating than the other ones.  There is a lot more DeMarco family drama, although it's definitely toned down.  And of course there is more Jules + Sawyer = <3 .="" p="">
I loved the adventure of this series and the way this final book wrapped up was beyond great.  It made me so happy that there was vision closure at the end!!  What I was not so into was this really awkward sexy-time moment between Jules and Sawyer that was just uncomfortable for me to read.  I guess it's normal for teens to be finding out about how their bodies work, and exploring sexuality for the first time can be awkward, but I didn't really need or want to read about it.  It was icky.  There were also some moments where the characters did things that just didn't make a lot of sense to me.  I wish I could tell you what they were, but I think it would be too spoilery.  Let's just say when someone in the book may be in severe harm, the other characters bail.  I can't imagine leaving people I care about for dead no matter what the reason.

If you're thinking about reading this series, I say YES!!  It's a cute and thrilling set of books and I FLEW through reading each one.  Easy, fun, captivating reading!

OVERALL: I loved the way this series wrapped up.  A new vision(s) and new relationships added with awesome characters made this book as awesome as the first 2 for me.  I'm a little sad it's over, and I will recommend this underrated series to everyone :)
