Don’t Close Your Eyes.

Sophie Cavanaugh is not going to let her freak of a cousin’s strange psychiatric condition ruin high school for them both. Not after all the work she’s put into cultivating the right look, and friends, and reputation. But then, Sophie sees something so frightening she lets out a blood-curdling scream—and finds herself stuck in a bizarre parallel world where nothing is safe and deadly creatures lurk just out of sight, waiting for her to close her eyes and sleep…forever.

Could this world be real? Or does insanity run in the family…?

What I thought:

This is the short story set during the time of the fifth book, If I Die. If you haven’t read that yet, I’ll try to keep it spoiler free, but I suggest you do first.

The main character of this story is Sophie, Kaylee’s cousin. I was interested to see how much I’d like reading through her perspective, but I enjoyed it. She can be a bit much and demanding at times, but in the end that determination might be what saves her. She doesn’t think she’s anything like Kaylee, but maybe her strong will is closer than she thinks. She still has room to grow, but this was a great start for a short story, and I’m so excited to read the next book in the series!

Since it isn’t too long, I won’t go into the story, as it goes by pretty fast, but if you’re a fan of this series go find a copy at the library or for your eReader and get involved in even more Soul Screamer’s goodness!
