Een hartverscheurend en indrukwekkend verhaal, lees hier mijn recensie: Kelly and Miko, however, The plot was filled with twists and turns that kept me gripping to the words on every page, disallowing me to put the book down at all!

This was a sweet, fun, heartbreaking story all wrapped into one.

Dying puts a whole new perspective on things though. It is when Brie steps out of the pizza parlor that the story begins to pick up its pace and the reader begins to be truly invested. However, the second half picks up the pacing, and it becomes quite an enjoyable read from there on out.


I like how the story progressed for five stages of grieving? She made me want to throw the book against a wall and hug it so fiercely my ribs hurt.

Back in Half Moon Bay, her family has begun to unravel. With Patrick’s help, Brie will have to pass through the roothenberg stages of grief before she’s ready to move on. If you have ever been in love and had your heart shattered into itty bitty pieces, this book is for you.

At times, the story is predictable, but there are plot twists that can actually get your attention. I could go on and on on how this made death so utterly ridiculous.

I’ve always been interested in plots where someone dies and gets hiistory look at their friends and family. She goes to her funeral, visits her family and friends, eats a lot of pizza there is pizza in the afterlifeand learns that love is more complicated then she could ever have imagined. Despite the whole death thing, the book was light, filled with humor that be found among many girls. Kristie Lowry, Promotions Manager. Yku this book–my goodness–made me feel so bipolar, it was like slowly inching up on a roller-coaster, only to have the ride be stuck at the highest point, staring down at a trail of steepness below.

There she meets Patrick, resident Lost Soul, who is so damn sweet, crushworthy and all-around awesome!! Jess Rothenberg grew up in Charleston, South Carolina, graduated from Vassar College, and spent most of her twenties editing books for teens and middle grade readers.

I absolutely adored the voice given to Brie.

She sees the consequences, and we are left to wonder what Brie will do. I had found it cheap on Amazon and decided to buy it. She lives in Brooklyn where she writes full-time, dances interpretively, and dreams of one day owning a sheepdog named Leo.
