A Masterful Read

First thoughts:

What?! Huh?! What just happened? Alot of those questions ran through my mind throughout reading this book. This is definately a book you have to be an active reader on, there's no laying back and causally reading. You need to strap on a life vest, get in the boat and be prepared for a white water experience. This is a refreshing and unique story. Where two worlds collide and you the reader must depict which is real and which is not.


Ava wakes up in a hospital bed with no memory on who she is. She remembers nothing, she feels nothing but confusion and nervousness. But soon she starts dreaming and is thrown into a world she does know, where she knows things; a world that is the opposite of earth now. A world where food is scarce and everything is dull and dead looking. And soon she gains those memories back of that world, she learns of Morgan, the guy who would do anything for her, a guy who is dying for her for just being in this world she is in now. And as Ava starts to learn more of where she came from and who she is, she gets torn in two. She was put in this world without consent, yet this world is worth living, food is abundant and you have choices.

But even with all that, Ava is not happy. She needs answers; she needs Morgan. And the friends of Ava(the girl who is no more) are different, she thinks she knows them from her world, but they're different. Ava battles to "Wake-Up" and discover who she is and who she is meant to be. But there are just some things you can't wake-up from. Is this really something she'll never truly awaken from?

Last thoughts:

A wonderful and intriguing read. It can be intimidating but don't let that stop you, trust me, a good book comes with confusion and answers and even though not every question was answered (a trait I usually despise in a book) I was content with it. I think it was better left for the reader to question, to allow them to come up with the answers. And though I do hope for a sequel in this series I don't think it's necessary. Elizabeth Scott is a talented writer and I think everyone should give her a shot, you just might be suprised. I rate this book 4.5 stars!!
