Book Summary
Being a twin isn’t all that bad, nor is it all that good. Being the fat twin makes things a little worse. Seventeen year old, Jessa Shelby has been all but ignored. Trimmed down, but not skinny like her sister, she has decided to make her mark in her final year in high school.

Things begin anew the summer before her senior year when she makes friends with Ethan Hart, a boy with a twisted past, and Allie, his near celebrity status girlfriend, while taking pictures with her new prized possession. Hanging out with them opened her eyes to a lot of new possibilities including Josh Macon, whom she’s secretly crushed on all through high school. No longer the ‘fat girl’, Josh now seems interested in her too.

Long before the day comes to graduate, Jessa finds herself gasping for air. With her vision clouded from tears born of pain as the straps from her precious camera tighten around her throat, clarity sets in. They say that just before you die your life flashes before your eyes. And on the threshold of death claiming her, she finds that partially true. Her flash begins as if to explain just how she ended up on Death’s door. With mere moments left, she has to wonder if trust had come at a very high price.
My Review
What to say.  Well, this author sure knows how to write the hot guy. I was enthralled by Ethan from hello and my favoritism never wavered.
The mystery of who done it though had me stumped. Every time I thought I knew, I would second guess myself. I guess that’s a good thing.
One thing that is new about this author’s writing style is that there is something always going on. The pace just kept going which makes it hard to put the book down because you want to know what’s going to happen next.
The only thing I can hope for is that there will be another book. There are just a few questions I’d like answered. And there was an ending but still, I had question.
