The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting

Violet Ambrose is grappling with two major issues: Jay Heaton and her morbid secret ability. While the sixteen-year-old is confused by her new feelings for her best friend since childhood, she is more disturbed by her "power" to sense dead bodies—or at least those that have been murdered. Since she was a little girl, she has felt the echoes the dead leave behind in the world . . . and the imprints that attach to their killers.

Violet has never considered her strange talent to be a gift; it mostly just led her to find dead birds her cat left for her. But now that a serial killer is terrorizing her small town, and the echoes of the local girls he's claimed haunt her daily, Violet realizes she might be the only person who can stop him.

Despite his fierce protectiveness over her, Jay reluctantly agrees to help Violet find the murderer—and Violet is unnerved by her hope that Jay's intentions are much more than friendly. But even as she's falling intensely in love, Violet is getting closer and closer to discovering a killer . . . and becoming his prey herself.

Kimberly Derting wrote a heartfelt novel that will be sure to capture readers. I have re-read The Body Finder countless amounts of times. I love the world that Kimberly created. She wrote the characters very well, and what they said guided the story along really smoothly. Since first reading it, my copy of The Body Finder has been passed through about half of my class. Everyone who read it, loved it. Nobody even disliked one thing about the book, if that isn't enough evidence of why you should read it, I don't know what is. I can't wait for the second Body Finder book. This book is one of the best books I read last year. I strongly recommend The Body Finder. It's is simply addicting and lovely.
