Haven by Kristi Cook

Summary from Goodreads

Violet McKenna isn’t a normal girl with normal teenage issues; she has more to contend with than most people could handle. Violet thought she was just crazy when she had a vivid vision of her dad’s murder. Her life started falling apart when her premonition came true. She’s had flashes of other events too. The problem was nobody believed her until she found a new school: Winterhaven.

At Winterhaven, Violet finally feels like she belongs. She quickly finds a close group friends and discovers that they too have psychic ‘gifts’—as do all the students at Winterhaven. But as soon as she feels settled she discovers the most intriguing and alluring boy she has ever met, and things quickly go awry. As the attraction between them grows, intense visions of the boy’s death start to haunt her. In her premonitions the secret he is unwilling to share begins to reveal itself. And to Violet's horror, she learns that their destinies are intertwined in a critical--and deadly--way.

Patterned Text Generator at Haven was like a wild unexpected ride. The first line abruptly drops us into the campus of Winterhaven and it's all uphill from there. Violet is a strong, determined character and has a a lot of issues concerning her visions. Aiden pleasantly surprises her with his sweet, calm personality. His mystic, she kind of dislikes and makes it known to him without hesitation, only enhancing her strength. The story does move quickly, but you are never confused. There are incredible secrets and that's the best part. My favorite part which caught me off guard was that Violet didn't have a female antagonist. I was waiting for her room ate to attack as soon as Violet's back was turned. This aspect though simple showed me the talent we can expect from newcomer, Kristi Cook.
