Best November Read
YA Highway RTW time again! This week's topic asks you to dish about the best book you read in November. For me, it was:
Can there truly be love after death?
Drifting in the dark waters of a mysterious river, the only thing Amelia knows for sure is that she's dead. With no recollection of her past life—or her actual death—she's trapped alone in a nightmarish existence. All of this changes when she tries to rescue a boy, Joshua, from drowning in her river. As a ghost, she can do nothing but will him to live. Yet in an unforgettable moment of connection, she helps him survive.
Amelia and Joshua grow ever closer as they begin to uncover the strange circumstances of her death and the secrets of the dark river that held her captive for so long. But even while they struggle to keep their bond hidden from the living world, a frightening spirit named Eli is doing everything in his power to destroy their newfound happiness and drag Amelia back into the ghost world . . . forever.
Thrilling and evocative, with moments of pure pleasure, Hereafter is a sensation you won't want to miss.
With such an intriguing premise, I had to read this one. If you love paranormal romance, you won't want to miss it. The relationship between Amelia and Joshua is so sweet, and I couldn't help but root for them despite the obstacles they face--a grandmother who wants to banish unclaimed spirits like Amelia who died in the river below a bridge, a possessive and dark spirit named Eli who wants to claim her for his own and will stop at nothing to do so, and of course the fact that she's dead. The story was unputdownable, and I'm so looking forward to reading the sequel(s).
