Hollywood was abuzz recently with the news that Jessica Shirvington's bestselling EMBRACE series was being adapted for television by The CW Network (Gossip Girl, The Vampire Diaries) and Steven Spielberg's Amblin production company. Now Jessica is set to excite fans with BETWEEN THE LIVES, a taut psychological thriller that will hook you from page one... Ages:14+

tHE PERFECt LIFE OR tHE PERFECt LOVE. YOU CHOOSE. For as long as she can remember, Sabine has lived two lives. Every 24 hours she Shifts to her 'other' life - a life where she is exactly the same, but absolutely everything else is different: different family, different friends, different social expectations. In one life she has a sister, in the other she does not. In one life she's a straight-A student with the perfect boyfriend, in the other she's considered a reckless delinquent. Nothing about her situation has ever changed, until the day when she discovers a glitch: the arm she breaks in one life is perfectly fine in the other. With this new knowledge, Sabine begins a series of increasingly risky experiments which bring her dangerously close to the life she's always wanted... But just what - and who - is she really risking? Ages: 14+

*Might contain spoilers, I don't know. This book really had me. I was recommended this book by my friends and they said it was a 'light' read. PFT, some friends they were. To lie to me. IT WAS DEEP AND BEAUTIFUL. THE END! OMG IT'S UNBEARABLE. JESSICA SHIRVINGTON WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO ME?! I could not stop crying! A novel that can make me cry is instantly a good book. Well, for me at least. After i finished the novel, i couldn't stop thinking about it for a good hour. Ethan's secret had me on the edge. I really wanted to find out and i was dying to know. What pissed me off was that he wasn't the one who told her his secret :( i was so heartbroken, even though secretly, deep down i knew it all along. I still like to feel surprised and shocked, and then bawl my eyes out. At first, I wasn't really into the main character, mainly because she was suicidal and didn't really CAREFULLY consider things. Plus, i never really took a liking to her name. Through those times, i was left feeling like 'what. is. she. doing?' But afterwards, it got interesting when a gorgeous sweet boy named Ethan helped her through it all. It was touching really, and Sabine was pretty stupid to not see that, and still be with Dex. I've never really liked him. It was the way the author wrote about him. Who in the world would feel that uncomfortable kissing the hottest guy? That's what made me feel weird about him. He sounds superficial. Maybe WAY too superficial. The whole notion of the live-swapping thing was really interesting. Was it a different dimension completely or was she really living the same world and time? Could she have visited her other self? What put me off was that even though she visited the place, the people there were different. That remained a mystery. The relationship between Sabine and Ethan progressed a little too fast, and focussed much more on Sabine and Dex rather than them, and i was a little disappointed. Like, maybe wait another day before she got with Ethan, I don't know. It happened all too quick. And then THAT happened. Too much happened all at once. My brain couldn't cope. I broke down. In tears. GOOD BOOK! GOOD JOB JESSICA SHIRVINGTON!show more
