In case you don't already know what happens in this book, Delaney Maxwell miraculously wakes up after being in a coma for six days. She shouldn't be alive. At first, it seems that everything is okay with her, but then...stuff starts happening
. I can't tell you what the feeling she gets means without giving away the story, but it's kinda creepy :)
Meanwhile, she's dealing with her feelings for best-friend-slash-boy-next-door, Decker, and the new guy, Troy, who seems to be the only person who truly understands what she's going through, not to mention that her already-cautious mother is pretty much beside herself with worry and making her life even more difficult.
I liked this book, and I think it would make a great movie. It had the right amount of swoon, horror, and drama in it to keep the viewer very interested. There were several parts that had my heart pounding, whether from the Decker-induced angst or the back-alley chase that takes place. I felt like I could identify with the characters, and found myself rooting for both Decker and Troy in different parts of the book.
What I didn't like was the end. Right up to the end, I couldn't put the book down. Then I got to the end and was left dumbfounded. I didn't feel any resolution at all
. So, it was like a movie would be--all of this action, action, action then bam! It's over. And we're left to imagine
what happened after that. I also did not get why her mother was such a bitch. Their relationship was tumultuous at best, and seemed to only go well when Delaney was doing what her mother thought she should be doing or acting like a stepford daughter. I also did not like her friends acted toward the end, and I feel like Decker would NOT have let her be around them, knowing how they felt. I don't even think he'd want to be around them. I also didn't like a lot of the choices Delaney made. For a girl who's supposed to be so smart, she sure could be pretty stupid.
Things I liked: Decker. most of the time. And sometimes I liked Troy. Why is it that I just like the boys usually? I also like the scene just before the end.
I think the storyline is brilliant, and I'm definitely looking forward to reading more from Megan Miranda. I love the way she writes, and I was swooning at some of the kisses (even if they were the wrong ones lol). I just wish that it had been wrapped up a little bit more, and that it seemed like what she went through meant
