Elise Stephens book Forecast is a real nail biter from the first chapter to the very end.  Calvin, the main character draws you into his story. This character will have you feeling as if you are right there rooting for him one minute and being frustrated with him the next.

Calvin thought a vacation away from his emotionally dependent mother and the nightmares of his drunken father would help him and his sister regroup before going back to school. The siblings travel to their grandfather’s mansion, which has remained available for the family since his death. Calvin does not know the depths of the mythology that surrounds his grandfather’s ability to forecast other people’s deaths. Calvin does not believe in any of this until he learns that his father is coming to see them. Fear of the unknown leads to being curious and wanting to know if he has the gift of seeing into the future. Calvin’s stubbornness does not allow him to listen to the warnings not to pursue what’s behind the door. Will Calvin predict the future or will he experience the same fate as his grandfather?

This was an excellent combination mystery and intrigue. I could relate to the character but at the same time found myself frustrated at his immaturity, which is due to his age. I kept finding myself wanting to talk to the character and give him advice in certain scenes.  I would definitely recommend this book to readers.
