Bang picks up a few weeks after Crash and Jules is no longer seeing horrendous visions of death except now Sawyer has the sight. Instead of seeing the death, he hears eleven shots and vaguely describes a school shooting to Jules. Of course, Jules is on restriction after crashing the Meat Ball (food truck), and no longer has a cell phone, so their connections have to take place at school. Sawyer does manage to get a prepaid cell phone to Jules so the pair can talk and text when they need to without their parents knowing.

Jules enlists the help of her siblings, Trey and Rowan, to figure out where Sawyer's vision takes place, but the vision is coming more often which means time is running out. Sawyer sees certain trees in the background which helps them narrow down the location to a college. This is fast paced and will have your heart racing as they try to figure out the locations and see if they can save the potential eleven victims.

I really enjoyed this story and centered around a school shooting that seems ripped out of the headlines and with an undercurrent of social commentary that is going on today. The whole theme is so true that it seems it happened someplace recently. The ending left open another installment and I really can't wait to see where this takes these kids. I can't explain too much of it since it would give away a lot of the plot.
