Reblog: Review of Between by Jessica Warman August 14, 2011

Release Date: August 2, 2011
Publisher: Walker Children’s

My good friend Shanella (whose excellent book blog you can find at http://ireviewbooks.tumblr.com) and I scored BIG at BEA2011 this past May. Included among the virtual library with which we each schlepped home was an ARC of Between by Jessica Warman.

It’s not exactly the type of book I usually read, but I was so intrigued by Shanella’s compelling review that I decided to pick it up, starting tomorrow. I would say the usual “don’t take my word for it,” but instead I’ll highly recommend you give an ear to hers:

Review: Between by Jessica Warman

A gripping tale from beyond the grave.

When I received this book at BEA, I first thought it was another book – I’m not sure why, it was a long day – so when I brought it home and read the back of it and realised that it wasn’t a fantasy novel I was a bit cautious. While I step outside of fantasy novels every once in awhile, it’s mostly on recommendations or because I’ve heard great buzz about it, so going with no buzz and no expectation I started to read Between.

I was blown away. 

Jessica Warman spins the tale of a high schooler named Elizabeth. Liz is pretty, rich, popular, dating a popular boy at school and at the top of the high school social food chain. Liz is a runner. Liz has a secret. Liz is dead . . .

My good friend Shanella (who does fabulous book reviews here) found the original creator and blogged this the other day.

I couldn’t resist reposting this. It’s so pretty! And my mouth is literally watering.

I’ve never seen Harry Potter look so good…
