I received this book from NetGalley in exchange of an honest review.

I know where you're going to die is a very peculiar and unique book. Leo, the main character, is terribly shy, he suffers from social anxiety. He's rich, lives in a beautiful house, his mother is a movie bigwig and he's surrounded by superficial and spoiled people, like his classmates. The only one who gets him, they really get and understand each other, is J.C., his best friend, more outgoing and fan of stylish and designed

Thank you so much to Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA) and Michae J. Bowler for giving me an ARC of the author’s I Know When You’re Going To Die via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

What if you are given the power to know when people are going to die? What would you do? Leo is a shy, rich kid. Unlike his peers, he does not live a lavish life, and instead focuses on helping the poor and needy.

Since I've spent so much time with these characters and crafting the plot surrounding them, how can I not love the story? Seriously, though, this is a fun book from the mystery/thriller perspective. But it also contains important themes about the value of friendship, selflessness, and the need to accept differences in others.

Leo and J.C. are best friends--J.C. is Leo's only friend. While volunteering in a shelter, Leo encounters a homeless man that gives him a "gift" and immediately the old man dies. The terrifying gift given is the knowledge of the death date of any individual when Leo looks deeply into their eyes. What he see's in the eyes of his best friend strikes terror in his heart.
