Synopsis (Goodreads):
One delivery changed her whole life.

Izzy was a normal girl living in Chicago as a bike messenger before that fateful day. She delivered one package and set into action a chain of events she never could have expected.

Now she is running for her life from the Corporation, her best friend is not at all who he seemed, and to top it all off she keeps having visions.

Will she survive to navigate the waters as a Seer? Will her feelings for Kennan be her very downfall? Find out in See How She Runs.
Thoughts on See How She Runs: There were things I liked about this book and things I was left scratching my head over. While the good definitely outweighed the head scratching moments,they were present and they took me out of the story a bit.

I liked the overall story and the mythology of the Seers and Guardians. In fact, the mythology was very cool and kept the story moving. My biggest issue came from the idea that if someone was keeping an eye on Izzy the whole time and they knew who she was, why wasn't she exposed earlier? They knew what she was capable of, why not hand her over the first chance they got?

Frankly, I got tangled up thinking about that and about the betrayal/betrayer and got sucked out of the story.

I liked Kennan for the most part. I don't think he was particularly right in keeping the truth about Izzy's heritage from her, especially when he could see the signs coming, and he's not the best at explaining things until after the fact, but he was a good guy. I wasn't enamored of Ian when he first flailed his way on page. BUT... I can see how Izzy needed someone around who was a little less intense than Kennan.

As for Izzy, she doesn't always make the smartest choices, but she isn't willing to sit back and do nothing. And that matters.

Enjoyable for the most part, I just got hung up on betrayals and inept minions. Which could be an entirely me-thing, I'll admit.
