What if, instead of dead actually being forever, there was a possibility of bringing your loved ones back to life? Instead of losing those closest to you forever, you had the power to undo their death? That’s exactly the premise in this chillingly semi-futuristic story.
In one instant, Lake’s world is shattered. A tragic car accident takes the lives of both her best friend and her boyfriend. Miraculously she survives. But she’s left with an unimaginable dilemma. You see, technology has given people the ability to be resurrected. Not just randomly and at will, mind you. Instead, every person receives one resurrection on their eighteenth birthday to be used on whoever they choose. That’s one resurrection, though. And Lake can’t imagine making that choice.
To make matters even more difficult, her resurrection choice has already been promised to her older brother who was tragically paralyzed years earlier. She’s not even close to her brother anymore, so she surely can’t imagine wasting this precious gift on him. Especially when the love of her life and her best friend have died.
Things aren’t always what they seem, of course. As Lake struggles to come to terms with the accident, while also recovering from her own injuries, she discoveries that nobody is who they seem to be. And then, of course, there’s a new guy to complicate matters.
This story is a lot of things. It’s science fiction, for now at least. It’s a romance. It’s a teen drama. And it’s a mystery with one heck of a twist at the end that I sure didn’t see coming.
