Stealing Light by Julie Cassar

"Tonight, everything could change. I wasn’t ready to let go of anyone just yet."

If you could change what you know is coming, would you? Cecelia Walker discovers an amazing ability deep within herself that gives her the power to change the future. When mysterious outsiders enter her life, she begins to question everything and everyone she once knew. 

Years earlier, CeeCee’s life changed forever the day her parents were killed in a horrific car accident. Suddenly extraordinary people and bizarre events began to seep into her very small world. Surviving for years on her addiction to coffee and running, life suddenly deals her a game-changing wildcard and all bets are off. Her magnificent Gift of Light awakens a tremendous dark power wanting to steal what is hers. 

Will Cecelia be able to change what she’s seen and set a new course? Has she met her otherworldly match against evil and found her true soul mate? Or, is nothing as it seems as the power of darkness threatens to consume her and those she loves.
CeeCee is a young girl that has been forced to live an adult life from too early of an age. CeeCee’s Parents were killed in a car accident at an early age, and she now lives her life from day to day running the coffee shop they all loved. I can't imagine being that dedicated to something that reminds you of exactly what you have been denied. Yet CeeCee does this day after day, with honor and love!
Her life is filled with coffee, running, and regret. 
CeeCee learns slowly that she is different, she is developing the ability to see the future and it's up to her just how she uses this gift.
That concept alone is a fantastic story, then Julie Cassar gut punches you in the feels and you travel on this magical journey with CeeCee. We learn that there is more to her gift than anyone knew, she learns she is stronger than she could ever dream, and then... and then she gives us the dream team of Aaron and Cash. 
Thanks for the snot fest Julie! 
Seriously, Julie Cassar continues to blow my mind with her ability to mold the story into yet another work of art. Between me laughing at CeeCee's snark, to Aaron's humility, Cash's determination... I need more of this in my life!
Impatiently waiting for book two!!
