I'm a student, so I don't have nearly as much time for leisure reading as I'd like. If I manage to read an entire course book instead of just the assigned chapters, I'll review that here, too.

Before I Died

Before I Died - Sara Marx

It's hard to pin down just what I did not like about this ghost novel, other than that the dead were called Deads, as if the author was looking to market a toy line.

 

The story was consistent enough, the struggles of parental control and controlling co-parents familiar, and of course I always enjoy a lesbian angle. The vision of afterlife just didn't work for me; removing emotion and humanity from the protagonist made it hard to identify with her, or even make her sound like a distinct person.
