If I Die (Soul Screamers #5) by Rachel Vincent

Pages:  342
Publishers:  Harlequin
Published:  September 27, 2011

The entire school's talking about the gorgeous new math teacher, Mr. Beck. Everyone except Kaylee Cavanaugh. After all, Kaylee's no ordinary high-school junior. She's a banshee—she screams when someone dies.

But the next scream might be for Kaylee.

Yeah—it's a shock to her, too. So to distract herself, Kaylee's going to save every girl in school. Because that hot new teacher is really an incubus who feeds on the desire of unsuspecting students. The only girls immune to his lure are Kaylee and Sabine, her boyfriend's needy ex-girlfriend. Now the unlikely allies have to get rid of Mr. Beck…before he discovers they aren't quite human, either.
But Kaylee's borrowed lifeline is nearing its end. And those who care about her will do anything to save her life.



Oh. My. God. I have absolutely no other words for this book. This really did not turn out like I expected. But I loved it!  Though I wish it hadn't ended so suddenly. You'd expect Kaylee and Nash to break up. Again. Also Nash breaks a promise he had made to Kaylee leading her to make a deal with Sabine. She also gets a visit from an reaper from her past.

Kaylee grows a lot more mature in this book than any other. Possibly because of the knowledge that she will die soon. And so she can leave behind people with happy memories of her, she makes a deal with Sabine about Nash and tries to take down an Incubus who has come to their school in search of a young girl who can give him a son.

Todd makes an appearance in this book and does something, which makes Nash, hate him. The drug 'Frost' makes another appearance.  The book had me hooked from the first chapter and drooling for more by the end.  I give it 5 stars.
