Anyone who reads my reviews knows that I follow this author very closely; in fact, I've been a friend and then a fan when she went from running a parenting magazine to writing fiction. I've read two other YA books written by her, and this is her third. Lucky for me I got to read it as a beta reader.
When I first started reading this paranormal YA book, I thought to myself "Oh, how cute! What a cute chick-flick. I'll so totally recommend this to so-and-so's daughter." But, as I read on I found it getting a little deeper and then a little darker and then just when I was sitting on the edge of my seat - BAM!
But I can't tell you what the BAM is. Unfortunate too, but I have to say that after I finished it I thought to myself, "Well done, Melissa! This might be my favorite YA book of yours thus far." Which means, it might, might, might top The Spirit Keeper' with me. I also must say that it left me...well, wondering. Because I'm a "I need to know" kind of gal.
I little about the story...
Blake is kind of a goodie too shoes, co-captain of the cheerleading squad and dating the nicest boy in school who also happens to be a jock on the football team. But then enters John, some what unexpectedly, and Blake's life is turned upside down. Leaving her with a big decision to make - that just might include life or death...
I would and will totally be recommending this book to all the young adult readers I know; though take notice that there is a F*bomb or possibly two. But I would still say ages 14 and up.
Put it on your To-Read list - release is expected to be 09-22-12!
