Life. Death. And…Love?

Emma would give anything to talk to her mother one last time. Tell her about her slipping grades, her anger with her stepfather, and the boy with the bad reputation who might be the only one Emma can be herself with.

But Emma can’t tell her mother anything. Because her mother is brain-dead and being kept alive by machines for the baby growing inside her.

Meeting bad-boy Caleb Harrison wouldn’t have interested Old Emma. But New Emma-the one who exists in a fog of grief, who no longer cares about school, whose only social outlet is her best friend Olivia-New Emma is startled by the connection she and Caleb forge.

Feeling her own heart beat again wakes Emma from the grief that has grayed her existence. Is there hope for life after death-and maybe, for love?

Before I knew about the romance aspect I was totally game to read this book because of the mother-pregnant-and-brain-dead thing. Now it just seems all sorts of great. It’s right down my alley. And comes out soon. Yay!

  1. I love the official cover for this! The placeholder cover kind of made me doubt the awesome of the book, but I was clearly wrong. 😉
