      I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes YA paranormal The main character, Dawn, is well drawn and engaging and every other character is fully fleshed out These people seemed real to me and every time I put the book down I found myself thinking about the characters and wondering how it would all turn out for them The paranormal angle was very well done and believable in the context of the story It was also a real page turner If I hadn t had other things that I absolutely had to do, [...]

      Received this ARC copy free from First Reads giveaways.Is being psychic all rainbows and sunshine like TV, movies, and people make it out to be Is it really that neat to know things before it happens Can there be an evil side to having psychic abilities All these questions went through my head as I picked up and started reading Dark Before Dawn In this book a teenager, Dawn, has the ability to see things before they happen and hear other peoples thoughts sometimes or feel their feelings emotions [...]

      My Review Dawn is a teenager whose mother just got remarried, so guess what Dawn gets relocated to a new home, with a new brother, new step father and, the best part, a new high school If that isn t stressful enough, Dawn is also psychic Yep, as in she can tell what team will win with what score Awesome right Not to Dawn, mainly because most of her premonitions are about which classmate is next on the reaper s list Dawn faces a new challenge warn those w an impending death and obliterate any cha [...]

      I m pretty glad I signed up for this book on one of the group R2R programs I got a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review It s not usually the type of story I m into, one basically completely lacking in the romance department, however I found that the story carried my along so well that I barely even noticed the absence Dawn is a psychic who doesn t understand her abilities or where they came from She s constantly being cut down by her mother because of them, and told to stifle he [...]

      Stacy Juba has created a fabulous story for kids and adults We begin this story with Dawn a young girl with psychic abilities that her mother wants her to hide She has a premonition that something horrible is going to happen on her first day of school And boy was she right What happens next is the stuff of nightmares I can t go into too many details because it would give away the story But I will say that Juba has created a character family that is so wonderful in all its crazy familial intricac [...]

      If you could control minds, would you This is the tagline from the author s website, stacyjuba, and it so eloquently sums up my thought after finishing this book If you asked me this question 2 days ago, I would have answered HELL YES After finishing Dark Before Dawn, I will admit that I am torn.First off, Dark Before Dawn is written from the perspective of Dawn, a I actually am unsure if we ever get a true age of Dawn 16 ish year old girl who has been able to predict when something bad is going [...]

      Dawn has had psychic powers ever since she was a child Like most of us at some point or another, Dawn feels like an outcast and is constantly picked on But imagine not being fully accepted by your own mother, not knowing the secrets behind your father s death, or being called a witch on a daily bases Unfortunately for Dawn, this is everyday life When she moves to a new town, with a new stepdad, new stepbrother, and a new school, she feels lonelier than ever Then, Dawn meets a girl who shows sign [...]

      This was a nice, quick, easy read and I have to say I really enjoyed it This is not your typical slushy romance brand of YA Paranormal and I found that to be a nice change.The plot is not overly complicated and I did see a lot of it coming, but I still enjoyed reading along to find out if I was right.Well written with characters everyone can relate to, I would definitely read by this author.I give Dark Before Dawn 4 out of 5 stars.Disclaimer I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a [...]

      Dark Before Dawn was a great read, perfect to take my mind off things and slip into the world that centered around Dawn I loved the plot and the idea of a sixth sense From the first page I was excited to see the lifelike quality around the relationship between Dawn and her mother It is definitely something that any teen age girl could sympathize with.The feelings that Candance and Elaine had towards the boys they like are very much like crushes I ve had Even though I wouldn t have killed over it [...]

      I was lucky enough to win this novel from the blog Peeking Between the Pages I say lucky as I loved it Aimed at young teenaged girls, it was full of the worry and angst I expected of a young girl moving to a new school in a new town Dawn s mother is newly married and has moved the pair to her new husband s hometown Gradually we learn of Dawn s special powers It s a shame the cover has to blurt them out to us note the words ESP Spells DANGER on the front Ms Juba takes the reader well beyond what [...]

      Carrie VibePretty good book However, at times is reminded me of Stephen King s Carrie It was an easy read It has an ending that leads you to believe there may be a sequel.

      What happens when E S P spells D A N G E R Well it could mean one of two things One, you need to learn to spell properly or two, you re a young girl with psychic powers and you ve met other young girls with psychic powers and made some friends Only for something sinister to be in the airWell, that s the plot today of the book Dark Before Dawn by Stacy Juba, a Young Adult Paranormal novel involving psychic powers It may sound like the plot to a Charmed episode, but in actual fact, this is a lot [...]

      3 4 stars For Dawn, being psychic is not easy Her abilities have often put her in situations where she knows too much, alienating her from her peers for one reason or another Needless to say, Dawn has never fit in The situation is made worse when Dawn s mother remarries, moving her to a small town in Maine Now there is even pressure on Dawn to be normal, since her new family doesn t know about her secret, and she is once again the new kid in school But this new town might be just what Dawn need [...]

      When you compile the normal teen angst and the importance of fitting in with the new kid in school, and one with psychic abilities to boot you have the makings of an engaging and believable story Dawn is the new girl in school, with a new step father and step brother, and the ability to predict the future When she warns a student at school about his impending death she ostracizes herself and becomes the butt of the mean girls sniping As often happens in high school, those with similar interests [...]

    27. Dawn says:

      Dark before dawnThis rating I is because so many life situation s are in or Typical teenagers, typical problems, I don t think so Questions dilemmas, and the cruelty that can happen in high school all blend for a trip to danger Read it in one sitting.

    28. Becky says:

      An enjoyable read with a touch of suspense and a dollop of paranormal, this audiobook was nicely read by the narrator, who has a very pleasant voice and brings life to teenagers well.Even though Dawn made quite a few bad choices along the way which yes, made me keep arguing with my audiobook while I drove to and from workis is perfectly normal, right it wasn t at all out of character for a sixteen year old who s adjusting to a new home and school family situation AND is just starting to get a gr [...]
