Goodreads Synopsis:
            Nara Collins is an average sixteen-year-old, with one exception: every night she dreams the events of the following day. Due to an incident in her past, Nara avoids using her special gift to change fate…until she dreams a future she can’t ignore.
            After Nara prevents a bombing at Blue Ridge High, her ability to see the future starts to fade, while people at school are suddenly being injured at an unusually high rate.
            Grappling with her diminishing powers and the need to prevent another disaster, Nara meets Ethan Harris, a mysterious loner who seems to understand her better than anyone. Ethan and Nara forge an irresistible connection, but as their relationship heats up, so do her questions about his dark past.
My Review:
            If you knew what was going to happen the next morning you woke up, would you consider that a curse or a blessing? Honestly, it would be pretty cool to know if you were going to get bird poop all over you, or get your purse stolen. However, for Nara it sucks. She gets to relive her day twice. Once in her dreams and then in real life. But for Nara it's getting pretty boring. She is always prepared (which is not a bad thing) and ready to tackle the day. So what's the problem? Well she is bored. Bored of knowing what's going to happen. There are no surprises for her and she's sick of that (it would totally suck for me since I love surprises).
            But one day all that changes. She wakes up to realize she doesn't know what's going to happen. Nara is scared and worried since all she has ever known is her ability. At times she even relies on her ability to help her through the day. And now she doesn't have it anymore! So what has changed? Well there's a new kid in town and the loss of her abilities has something to do with his appearance. As Nara becomes friends with Ethan, the new kid, she discovers she's not the only one hiding secrets.
            The plot of BKD is similar to the movie Final Destination, but without all the scary-gory stuff. The author did a wonderful job of incorporating the concept of if you know something bad is going to happen should you stop it or let nature do its thing. At one point in the book I even questioned my own beliefs and that surprised me that the author was able to get me to think since I'm very stubborn. If you are looking for something new and interesting then don't hesitate to pick this up! I definitely recommend it!!!
