After surviving an accident that took the life of her best friend, strange things start happening to our sixteen year old view point character, Julia. She can’t explain the strange bracelet she has never seen before, yet was found wearing at the scene of the accident, and the swirling doodles that seem to simply flow from the end of her pencil. Now the most popular boy in the school is taking an interest in her. But there is something different about Evan, and Julia finds herself wanting to know more, yet afraid of what’s to come.
Though targeted toward young adults, Here is a novel for all ages. The theme is equally appealing to everyone. “What would happen if…” And that oh-so human pondering, “If things could be different…”
Denise does a outstanding job portraying the devastation that death has on family, the anguish of survivor’s guilt, and the pure and special innocence of first love. It is so very easy to identify with Julia, though most of us have never had to walk in similar shoes. As always, Denise’s characters are real and dimensional giving us a glimpse into their world and dragging us along for their journey.
I was sad to get to the end of the book, but thankful that it’s a series. Whew! There’s more on the way! In fact all of the books I’ve read from Denise have been installments in a series. Just call me a true fan, for on release day, you’ll find Denise’s new novel downloaded into my Nook! Can’t wait to read what she comes up with next!
