Thanks to the author who was kind enough to send me this book.
I can’t really explain how much I love this book! I wasn’t planning to read it until I’m done with my exams but I couldn’t stop myself from reading it. And guess what? I finished it in less than a day!
This book is about afterlife and it deals with sensitive matters like suicide, depression, and sexual assault and the author discussed all these matters really nicely!
So, Piper Willow – the protagonist – dies the summer after her high school graduation but she doesn’t make it to Heaven or Hell…instead she finds herself in a spiritual terminal called the Station. She’s given only two choices: Return to Earth as the subconscious for a person in need of some outside assistance, or move on and spend an eternity lost in her own sorrow and pain. Does Piper have what it takes to save a life – to be the nagging voice inside someone else’s head – or will she fail and end up lost and tormented in limbo…forever?
I was a little confused at first but got clear after some time. So, Piper Willow is a depressed girl and she has suffered alot. More than a normal teenager. She commits suicide and finds herself in this place called The Station.
What I love about Piper is that although she has been through so much, she is a strong-minded and energetic person. She wants to save other people from what she went through. She wants to put hope, confidence, faith, and happiness in their heart, I love Piper because she’s truly amazing.
“Sometimes things go wrong. You need to accept that. You need to know that you will be okay. You’re amazing. You can have an amazing life if you choose to live it.”
The writing is so good that book had me hooked from the very first page. I enjoyed every moment and page of the book. I was so caught up in the book that I didn’t even realizes that I was at the last chapter. And can I just say that the ending was totally unpredictable? I’m really curious to read the second book! I don’t want to say more because I don’t want to spoil anything for you.
It is a relatively short read but a marvelous one. It is heart-wrenching, moving yet heart warming book. It’s also really humorous at times which I love!
I highly recommend this book to everyone because this book is brilliant. Get yourself a copy and read it!
