Allie is that awkward girl in school with only a couple friends, trying to keep her head down and her nose clean and make it through each day without causing a scene. However, there's a secret she's been carrying for years, a secret not even her best friend knows, and that's how she wants it to stay. That is, until a new boy strolls into the shop where she works, and throws all her best-laid plans of staying off love's radar out the window.
I rather enjoyed this book right from the start, as I remember being one of those awkward high school kids. Although, it was never to the extent of Allie, as she has to hold her emotions in check due to her secret. Not too easy when you're being harassed by two older bullies just for accidentally pushing one down the stairs. But while the two girls are trashing the store where she works, Allie loses it, and now what does she do? They know there's something up with her, but not exactly what, and then this hot new guy shows up, and her day just keeps getting better. Although many people would love the gorgeous new kid to take a shine to them, Allie's the complete opposite, and it gnaws at her that she feels an electric attraction to him whenever he's around. The main characters really grabbed my attention, as Allie and Ethan are both hiding something, and I couldn't wait to get to the part where they finally opened up about their secrets. Ethan's is a little beyond what Allie could have imagined, but their bond is great, and he helps her cope with everything in her life.
My only issue is I felt the ending was rushed. It was a great story, don't get me wrong, but about 3/4 through, I was under the impression it would continue into a second book because of the issue with Ethan (I don't want to give too much away). However, only a couple of chapters later, it gets resolved in one of those "happened in the background" type ways, and it just didn't seem to flow with the pace of the story. I would love a continuation, to see how the characters cope with what happens in the end, but if that's the case, then I wish the last couple chapters of this one had been stretched into a sequel. Still, a very good read, and I'd recommend it to fans of the paranormal, paranormal romance, and YA.
The last thing she needs is an entanglement with a strange boy.
Other Side of Forever by Shannon Eckrich is a paranormal romance with a fresh take on Immortals, mortals, even bullying. I think readers will be drawn to her heroine, Allie, she's like any normal teenage girl. But, she is different and there isn't really anything she can do about except, keep hiding her secret, the power that if she lets them out causes nothing but trouble. Not even Jeremy knows about her secret powers. Then, Ethan comes along, and when she finally lets him in... suddenly, he seems to be her other half. He calms her powers, shows her how to use them, and he loves her, no matter what.
Shannon Eckrich has written a winner with Other Side of Forever. It's quick reading, a fresh voice and take on paranormal romance/YA genre. If you enjoy books of discovery, of finding yourself, you're going to love Other Side of Forever.
Five out of five fairy kisses for this reader.
Until Ethan, that is.
Falling fast and furiously in love with him, Allie opens up, a must if they are to stay alive. Together they learn to reach inside for the power they need and that love and loss can bring redemption to all.
Other Side of Forever is a sweet and charming novel for the young adult in your life. Ms. Eckrich has a talent for prose that brings out the 'teenager' even in adults.
The characters are well written and sympathetic. The writing mature enough to make it real but not so much to assault the senses.
This is not what I would think a "typical" YA book is. There didn't seem to be as much angst as I normally would expect to see and I LOVED that! This is a fabulous characters that bring a unique and challenging perspective to a YA romance and I highly recommend it to my YA readers!
