Overall Grade: B

Stacey Brown is not quite a normal teenager. For basically her whole life she has been having random psychic visions. Her grandma has the same sort of ability. Along with these visions she can do some spells, sort of like a witch. Her friends think that isn't really possible but go along with her when she attempts to perform one.

Recently, Stacey has been having visions about her best friend Drea and they aren't good visions. The visions are hinting about Drea's death and Stacey is freaked out for more than one reason. Drea just shrugs it off when Stacey mentions it until a stalker starts scaring Drea. Are Stacey's visions true and will she be able to save Drea?

This is the first book in the Blue is for Nightmare series. I'm anxious to read the other three now (White is for Magic, Silver is for Secrets, and Red is for Remembrance). I liked the plot and how the story is set at a boarding school so the story focuses on Stacey and her friends without many adults butting in. This book had all my favorite subjects: mystery, magic, and a bit of love thrown in. The story flowed nicely and I was never bored. I'm looking forward to reading more by Laurie Stolarz :).
