Review: Here By Denise Grover Swank

Sixteen year old Julia Phillips buries herself in guilt after killing her best friend Monica in a car accident. Julia awoke in the hospital with a broken leg, a new talent for drawing and false memories of the accident, in which she dies and Monica lives. The doctors attribute this to her head injury, but no one can explain how a bracelet engraved with her name ended up at the scene of the accident. A bracelet no one has ever seen before.

Classmate Evan Whittaker paid Julia no attention before the accident, let alone after. Now suddenly he’s volunteering to tutor her and offering to drive her home. She can't ignore that his new obsession started after his two-day disappearance last week and that he wears a pendant she’s been drawing for months. When the police show up one night looking for Evan, he begs Julia to run with him, convincing her that Monica is still alive. Julia agrees to go, never guessing where he’s really from.

          My Thoughts 


     Can I just say how much I love this cover? It's so mysterious and kind of creepy. I love book covers that are amazing like this one. This book is about a teenage girl who is consumed with grief over killing her best friend in an car accident, and simply seems like she's going down a spiral turn at a rapid pace. What once was an easy job of keeping her grades up is now something she needs help with. It was really sad to see how much grief she has consumed and to see how much the accident changed her. Swank wrote her grief really well. I had no problems feeling it along with her.

     Swank created a world that I must say it's pretty much a first for me. I completely didn't expect the twist she threw her readers. That twist made the book so much more intriguing and mind boggling. The relationship between Julia and Evan was interesting. Further along the story Swank grips you and takes you through a heck of a ride. So sit back and enjoy!

     If you're looking for a book that's unpredictable and reads at a great pace, then this book is for you. I'll definitely be following through this series. I give this book a 3.5 stars! A Good Choice for Reading.

  14. I haven't read this book but I have read Chosen and really enjoyed it. This is an author I'm going to read from again. The pacing was what I liked about Chosen and it's great to hear it's good in "Here" as well.

As far as the book itself, it sounds fantastic. I can't wait to get my hands on this one.
