Snap by Carol Snow

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.

Snap was wonderful. Don't get me wrong, this book has its flaws, but it was still pretty darn good. Some things I didn't like about this book was that it was pretty predictable. I also didn't like how it seemed like Carol Snow was trying really hard to make this book sound scary. That being said, I did in fact like this book a lot. It was heavily addicting and really interesting. Carol Snow did a lovely job writing the characters in this book and I found them continuously keeping me amused.
