 Three levels. Two loves. One choice. Debut novelist, Lenore Appelhans has written a thrilling otherworldly young adult novel about a place that exists between our world (Level 1) and what comes after life (Level 2).

'I pause to look around the hive - all the podlike chambers are lit up as the drones shoot up on memories ... I've wanted to get out of here before, but now the tight quarters start to choke me. There has to be more to death than this.'

Felicia Ward is dead. Trapped in a stark white afterlife limbo, she spends endless days replaying memories, of her family, friends, boyfriend ... and of the guy who broke her heart. The guy who has just broken into Level 2 to find her.

Felicia learns that a rebellion is brewing, and it seems she is the key. Suspended between heaven and earth, she must make a choice. Between two worlds, two lives and two loves.

My Splurge:

Okay. I had super high hopes for this book and it was really not all that great. The one character I liked they....okay...not gonna go there. Felicia is just so stupid. -_-
I didn't like how the book was set up with her plugging in all the time. All. The. Time. It felt like the author didn't know what to do with the story so she just gave her memories that really held no point in the book at all. 
I wish we say the guys a bit more. Maybe a multiple perspective book for the next one? But yeah. I won't be reading it.
