Omar Phillips is Bridgewater High's favorite local teen author. His Facebook fans can't wait for his next horror story. But lately Omar's imagination has turned against him. Horrifying visions of death and destruction come over him with wide-screen intensity. The only way to stop the visions is to write them down. Until they start coming true...
Enter Sophie Minax, the mysterious Goth girl who's been following Omar at school. "I'm one of you," Sophie says. She tells Omar how to end the visions―but the only thing worse than Sophie's cure may be what happens if he ignores it.
Reading the description of Unthinkable I thought that it would be YA horror story that would scare the living out of me. Okay, not scare the living out of me, but at least be shocking. Sorry to say that it wasn’t. It wasn’t scary and it felt more like a middle grade read.
The plot was just okay. There wasn’t any suspense or any questions raised about what was happening. For me to actually enjoy the story it needed more depth and twists. It was too easy to find out who was bad and who was good. And I just couldn’t believe the whole thing.
