My Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
Camden Pike has been grief-stricken since his girlfriend, Viv, died. He’d give anything to have just one more glimpse of her. But when Cam visits the site of Viv’s deadly car accident, he sees an apparition. Her name is Nina, and she’s a girl from a parallel world. When Cam follows here there and makes an unbelievable discovery, it’s as if all his wildest dreams have come true. But things are very different in this other world. Nina is hiding a secret, and the window between the worlds is shrinking every day. As Cam comes to terms with the truth, he’s forced to make a choice that will change his life forever.
This was a powerful debut about love, loss, and second chances. This was such an interesting plot for a book and I was so excited to read it but, the only thing that really disappointed me was that the summary pretty much told you the whole entire book before you even read but, I will admit there was a couple surprising twists that I wasn't expecting.
Camden was a memorable and powerful character. He is completely broken over the loss of his girlfriend. Viv was his best friend and the two of them only had each other. I loved having a male narrator and getting to see inside of his head. The character of Nina that he meets played such a bigger part in the story then I had thought she would and I really loved her. She was so strong and I enjoyed her character so much, I had wished she was in the book even more because she quickly became my favorite.
Overall, I enjoyed this book so much. The one disappointment of this book for me was the pacing. I felt like the story dragged on in places, and I did tend to get bored while I was reading. But, overall the story was a great read. A powerful contemporary with a paranormal twist. A great debut, and I am so excited to see what Emily Hainsworth writes next!
