Death is no match for love...

Nobody knows what happens after death, except Amber Deliah Matthews.

Just before her seventeenth birthday, Amber loses her battle with cancer and is reborn into a less than perfect life. She remembers everything that led up to this moment and now finds herself left with only an unloving family and Oliver, a friend, and the only person who ever believed her story.

Amber has never wanted anything more than to be whisked back to the life she once loved. So, when Amber and Oliver are given the chance to venture back to Amber's first family, they embark on the journey of a lifetime.

Equal parts moving and achingly poignant, She Remembers is a captivating story about love, loss, and the threads that bind us all together.

Excerpt:

“Amber? Amb?” Oliver says, snapping me out of my daze. I blink as the images scatter away.
“Sorry,” I say softly. “What were you saying?”
Oliver takes on a wistful smile. He knows I was having a flashback; they happen so often.
“No worries. You said you wanted to go home. We have the money. We’re off of school because of this stupid suspension and literally right after our two weeks are up, we have April break. It’s the perfect time. You can go home. What do you say?”
My heart pounds in my chest when he says ‘home’. The reality of the situation dawns on me. We’re going back to Florida. We’re going to see my family. For the first time in fifteen years, I’ll see Mom. I’ll see Dad. I’ll see Micah. I’ll see Riley. Jack. Ellie. My friends. Shawn. I’ll be myself again.
But as much as I want to book a flight this very minute, I can’t. Today doesn’t belong to me, it belongs to Amber.

It belongs to her memory, it belongs to her legacy.
“Tomorrow. Tomorrow we book a flight.”
“Okay,” he answers.
I stand and flatten my skirt. “Come on, let’s go light her candle.”

Reviews:STC, teacher/school librarian on Amazon wrote:

She Remembers is a new novel by Ariana Glaser that will appeal to readers of young adult fiction. It is a unique story with an interesting twist-- a girl who dies of cancer at the age of 16 is reincarnated, but remembers every detail of her previous life. Amber’s desire to return to that former life is what drives her to take a bold step with only her best friend Oliver by her side.

With characters that make you think and a creative storyline, She Remembers demonstrates that Glaser is a promising young author. It will be interesting to follow her writing as she develops her craft.

C.O.M. on Amazon wrote:

This amazing young author writes a beautiful story with so many twists and turns (you will want to keep reading to find out what comes next) about life, death, family, friendships, feelings, and reincarnation. Whatever your feelings about reincarnation may be, it makes you contemplate your life here on Earth, your relationships, your friendships, and the importance of family (to name a few). It is a must-read that will touch your soul and help you to see the world in a different way that is uplifting and positive.

Jacqueline Kelly on Amazon wrote:

This novel is wonderful if you're looking for a quick and interesting story! The fourteen-year-old author is wise beyond her years, and she uses the concept of reincarnation to explore death in a way that makes it seem almost beautiful. Taking you through various twists and turns, She Remembers will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Excerpt:

Mesmerised by the tall dark trees and the kaleidoscope of colour spilling out of every leaf and branch, she pulled her gaze away to glance behind her, but she couldn't see her house anymore or the field that led to her back gate. There was a field, but it was blazing as though it was on fire. Lara turned to face the terrifying sight. She gasped like she couldn't breathe. She gulped, quickly feeling her throat close. She was sure she could feel the heat and smoke racing towards her from that glowing, burning ground. Lara cried out, covering her face and then just as quickly, it all disappeared. There was the back fence in the distance and the rows of familiar houses, closer was the cut back green field, its crops just starting to grow.

Mum’s steady hand was on her arm, but she looked so sad. “Go back home,” she said, sounding exhausted.

Excerpt:

A rustling sound stilled her tears. She sat up, spine rigid, her gaze darting from left to right. There was movement from the foliage a few yards to her left. She jerked back, brought up short by the rope that bound her to the wagon. Unless she removed the rope, she couldn’t go far.

Eyes peered through the shadows, one golden, one green. She didn’t know enough about the creatures that lived on the outskirts of the province to gauge how wary to be. She froze, unsure whether it was time to retrieve a weapon or beg for assistance from her owner.

The eyes neither shifted nor blinked. Like a blade, they slid into her.

Reviews:J.J. Reichenbach on Goodreads wrote:

It’s a coming-of-age story, but also a story about overcoming not only externally imposed adversity but the oppression that we internalize within ourselves. It’s about searching within yourself for strength that you were convinced you did not possess in order to help others and do what’s right. This book is ideal for YA readers of any age, and would be just as enjoyable for adults. It’s sharply, authentically written, rich with emotion, imagery, and imaginative world-building. The author does a superb job of bringing the characters to life and making you root for them as you follow them across dangerous lands. Highly recommended for all readers who enjoy YA fantasy.

Excerpt:

“Brady was lucky, though. He had a great mom who worked at a local art museum, and he was always able to explore different cultures. He loved that! He would spend most of his days staring into the Monet paintings, just pretending he was at those places. He imagined himself staring up at the Eiffel tower from his imaginary Parisian window, admiring just how extraordinary it was. Most of all, he was enthralled with the Eiffel tower, so much so that he and his mom spent many afternoons at the library, searching for more and more information about it. Brady knew how tall it was. He knew that its height fluctuated within six inches, depending on the weather. He knew it was designed by a man named Gustav Eiffel and that many French countrymen did not originally want it standing against their skyline. Brady knew how that felt. Sometimes he felt like he stood out a little too. His mother always told him, ‘Of course you stand out! That's what's stars do.

READ MORE

How else would you see them at night?’
“Brady's mom loved him and so, without Brady knowing, she sought a job far away from where they were. One day, she got a call. There was a small university in Paris looking for someone, and she was just the someone they were looking for! Brady's mom wanted him to be where he belonged. She loved him and understood him, always.”

"Is everything okay with you two?" I studied her face to see if I could figure it out, but I couldn't.

"We'll see." She looked back at Elijah, who by then was climbing into the front seat. "I'll text you later, okay? You have a nice ride home, and I want details later you hear me?" She walked over to the car and climbed into the passenger seat. Devon startled me when he snuck up behind me.

"So, I take it she didn't need to go home after all?" he said.

"They need to work out some stuff," I said.

"Well... Let's get you out of this cold and get home, shall we?" Devon grabbed my hand and walked me back towards the driveway where his blue 2014 Ford F150 was parked. I didn't know what to think anymore. He held my hand. What does that mean? Why would a guy like this like a girl like me? I felt unsure but decided to go with the flow. On the way to my house, we talked a lot about me. I told him I would be turning eighteen in a couple of weeks and graduating in May.  We talked about my mom and Shane and their wedding. We talked about my dad, which wasn’t an easy subject for me to talk about. I felt so comfortable talking to him, like I’d known him forever. He listened to me and didn't pass judgment. Well, at least I didn't think he did. He stayed quiet most of the time.

"Look at me being a chatterbox. Tell me about yourself," I asked.

"I love listening to you talk." He gave me that sexy smile of his.

"Well, now you know my life story, I'd like to hear yours."

"Some other time, okay?" he said. Hmm, what doesn't he want to tell me? I just told him everything about me. Did I say too much? Did he lose interest? Ugh, why am I letting this get to me? All too soon, we pulled up to my house. My mom's car wasn't in the driveway. Thank goodness. I didn't want her to see me pull up in Devon’s truck; she would probably flip out. Besides, I’m supposed to be next door at Cassie's house, and Cassie isn't even with me. Oh man, Cassie. I hope whatever she and Elijah are fighting about isn't too serious. They are too perfect for each other. I know I want a relationship just like theirs someday.

Ms. Witte is phenomenal in her detail & her suspense. She is without a doubt right up there with the Nancy Drew & Hardy Boys mysteries. These books were my favorites as a youngster, & Ms. Witte is just as great! I could not put it down, eyes got sore. I look forward to her next one. She is fast on her way to a long career if her stories are driven with the same suspense & description as this one was. Great job Ms. Witte, you are phenomenal in your writing & see a bright future in it for you.

Excerpt:

My hair falls in soft ringlets around my face, and strategically placed rhinestones glimmer with the slightest movement of my head. It’s a little overkill, but I have to admit, Wren knows what she’s doing.

She fluffs my hair in the back, pushes it over my shoulders. “You’ll be mesmerizing when you get your marks,” she gushes. “With the color of your eyes and your milky skin…” Her words trail, and she swallows whatever she was about to say. She glances nervously toward the bedroom door, then changes the subject. “You better get going. Lewis won’t be happy if you’re late.”

I turn, locking eyes with her. Why is she nervous? Would they disapprove of her complimenting me? Is befriending our kind seen as betrayal around here?

She hangs her head. “I’m sorry, Miss. I shouldn’t say things like that.”

Well worth the wait for this book! It picks up where the first leaves off and takes you on a roller coaster of a ride.

I love when in a series the Author picks up the story right from where the previous book left off. This is what the author does. The Author also throws in memories for those who are just starting the series, so the first time reader is not so completely lost and has the taste to start at the beginning. This Author never fails to deliver a great story, suspense, action and romance all in one book.

Excerpt:

It seems like an eternity before we see the first sight of land – a string of mountains, like a row of jagged, broken teeth, rising above the horizon. Beyond them lie our former lives and homes and friends-made-enemies. A twisted sense of longing sweeps through me. My most wonderful and horrible memories lie beyond that ridgeline ahead.
But the homesickness is short-lived when I realize more memories are about to be made there, and a stronger feeling overcomes me, washes over me in a merciless wave – excitement laced with unease. In the next few weeks, we could make history, change everything around for the better. But we have to stay focused and keep cool. Play our parts and do as we were ordered without fail. Otherwise, everything we’ve done, that Blythe and her brother-in-law and Harvey have done, will be in vain.
The idea immediately humbles me.

Spectacle is a fantastic story of survival and friendship. The story is fast paced with great characters who I quickly became invested in.

As a former Quinling, Ben's life should have been plain sailing.  However, bad choices, coupled with naivety, caused him to lose everything he had worked for and start his life from scratch.

This is the third book in the series and it relies heavily on knowledge from book one, and some from book two.

Excerpt:

Weakened legs carried me across the site, over mounds and through deep tracks left by diggers, until finally, the bridge came into view.  Then I saw the Oak tree and finally, through the mist, I saw Maggie, leaning on the handrail, looking into the water.  I hesitated.  She had not seen me, so there was still time to change my mind.  I looked behind me for an escape route, but figures appeared from the mist, moving onto the bridge.  Maggie turned as I approached.

"Hi," she said, but my lack of reply and the expression on my face stopped her from giving me the customary hug.

READ MORE

More figures appeared behind Maggie.  It seemed that the whole site wanted to witness the event.  Maggie glanced around, a puzzled look on her face.  Then there was utter silence; everything was still.  It was at that moment, that a man, far braver than I, stepped forward and slowly dropped down onto one knee, holding out a small open box.  I opened my mouth to repeat at least one of the carefully planned lines I had devised, but no sound came out.  It was a stalemate.  My speech was paralyzed and nobody else wanted to talk until they had heard me ask the question.

I've enjoyed reading the sequel and I think young adults will love it. They'll love it because the lessons the Quinling learned are lessons all of us could benefit from. . . All life is connected. You'll fall in love with all the species Jane (a Quinling) meets and learns many valuable lessons from. I would categorize this book as `fantasy'. I love fantasy!
