About the Author

Elizabeth Valchar has the perfect life. Pretty, popular and privileged--the world is hers for the taking. Even her eighteenth birthday party is ideal: a night on her father's boat spent with her friends, her boyfriend, alcohol and maybe just a little pot.

Unfortunately when Liz wakes up the day after her party it's obvious that her perfect life is over in every sense of the word.

Liz is dead. Left staring over the side of the boat at her own dead body and watching the horrible fallout as news of her death spreads to her family and friends, Liz has no clear memory of how she died. She doesn't even remember much of her own life.

As Liz struggles to make sense of the person she used to be and what led to her drowning on her birthday, Liz realizes there are some things that are best left forgotten in Between (2011) by Jessica Warman.

Between is an uneasy blend of mystery and paranormal with the smallest dose of suspense thrown in. While the bones of the story are promising as Liz tries to decipher the events leading to her own murder, the execution was inelegant at best.

First and foremost, Liz is not a likable heroine. While she is at pains to tell readers she is a "good kid" Liz's actions often speak louder. Even her transformation over the course of the book does little to make her an approachable narrator. Her sidekick throughout the story remains similarly one dimensional.

While Between has some interesting aspects the writing felt repetitive as Liz explains things repeatedly at different intervals of the story in the exact same way. Other aspects of the story (particularly "Famous Richie" and why he is so famous) felt like gimmicks that added very little to the story.

Such a mysterious read! This one has a surprise towards the end that you'll never see coming. I love that! Full of questions you'll be eager to uncover, you'll find yourself flying through this one!

It's Elizabeth's birthday party, and her father has allowed her, along with her friends to have a party on their boat. All was well. Great in fact, except that nobody managed to stay up until she actually turned another year older. Apparently everyone drank too much and passed out. Liz can't seem to remember a thing that went on. All she does know is that there is a highly obnoxious thumping noise and everyone seems to be sleeping through it. Trying to rouse someone with no efforts, Liz finally goes to see just where the noise is coming from.

That's when she sees her. The dead body floating in the water bumping against the boat. That person in the water? That's Liz. But how? Suddenly, Liz realizes someone is next to her staring along with her at her dead body. That's where it gets all the more interesting. Because that boy, well he died a year ago in a hit and run accident. With Liz questioning him, Alex decides to explain why she can't wake her friends and that it is indeed her in that cold water.

Not sure as to why Alex hasn't passed over yet, he starts to explain to her what it is that he does know, as well as what they can do. Once everyone wakes up, Liz knows it's only a matter of time before they find her body and that she needs to go see her father before he finds out. And once she is discovered, Liz watches to see how everyone reacts. Alex has told her that it's not good to see all her friends and family in mourning but she doesn't care.

As time goes by, Liz watches everyone to see if there are any clues as to just how she died.

Format: Hardcover
The amazing cover doesn't disappoint, this book was a phenomenal ghost story. The main character, Liz, discovers that she is dead in a very unusual way-she wakes up on the boat with her friends by a tapping sound...only to follow the sound to her own dead foot, hitting the side of the boat. From there, she meets Alex, a very resentful boy...the reader may initially dislike him, but it doesn't take long for the reader to be outraged by the injustice done to him during his very short life.

Liz acts as the readers' guide. She takes the reader through her death scene, her funeral, her friends' lives as they continue without her, her families lives, and her own past...even some of Alex's past is viewed. Some scenes are painful, even to the reader. The mark of a good writer is evoking emotions in his/her readers...this author did a terrific job of it. The reader will cycle through concern, outrage, hatred, and happiness.

How would your life be after you died? Liz does not have an easy time finding out. Her boyfriend and love of her life is dating her stepsister who believes she is the daughter of Liz's father...who married that stepsister's mother and his past high school love; this book is a mess of relationships and how they affect people and gossip. Liz's friends have a variety of problems, from stealing to parents losing jobs to mourning to drugs/alcohol. The most notable character with a problem turns out to be Liz herself. She suffered from anorexia, like her late mother, when she was alive; she has deep-seated abandonment issues with regards to her mother...as well as eating issues, she was a perfectionist, she was blackmailed, she had several very bad friends, etc... Liz's character is incredibly dynamic, the reader will find her a pleasure to read about.
