BOOK REVIEW: The Space Between Heart Beats by Melissa Pearl

Nicole Tepper has it all—beauty, popularity, and the perfect boyfriend. But after a party she can’t remember, she wakes up in a ghostly state, trapped between life and death. Nicole’s injured body is lying in a wooded area, but she has no idea where—or how long she has left to live. 

Only one person can hear her now: Dale Finnegan, a loner classmate that Nicole has relentlessly bullied. Dale’s the last person in school who would want to help her, but he sets their tangled history aside to try to save her life. As they dig into what happened at the party, they discover her boyfriend isn’t as perfect as he seems—and neither are her friends. With the clock ticking down and her life slipping away, Nicole must face a hard truth: Was what happened to her a terrible accident? Or does someone want her dead?

REVIEW BY: Angel, 15 years


Fascinating, beautiful description, and a brilliant plot.

Nicole Tepper is the girl you would call a queen bee, popular, beautiful, and has the cutest boyfriend.

When she goes to a party, the next day she can't remember anything. She is trapped in a ghostly state and can only be heard and seen by Dale Finnegan. However, before this life and death situation Nicole was his bully yet he still wants to help her.

While Nicole is in her ghostly state she realizes that her boyfriend is cheating on her and her backstabbing friends do not seem to care about her missing state. Meanwhile Nicole is slowly dying in forest Dale and Nicole become closer as he tries to help her survive. The more they uncover the more they learn about themselves and what is worth living for.

My favorite character is Dale because he is a typical teenage boy with a sweet personality.

My favorite part is after they find Nicole's body. I also like the part where Nicole dumps her supposed boyfriend and friends. She realizes she wants to be with Dale and best of all she no longer cares about popularity, money, or partying.

I recommend this book for anyone who likes emotional, sweet, and page turning books.

I give this book 5 stars and recommend it for 13 and up.

BOOK REVIEW: Emma G. Loves Boyz by Taro Meyer

Emma G. Loves Boyz - A True Love Journal is the first book in the new Tween Girl Series by Taro Meyer - the exuberant journal of a star-struck fan who vows to stop at nothing - not even doing chores! - for a chance to see her favorite boy band perform live...

Emma G. is CRAZY about Aaron, lead singer of Boyz3000. Of course, she doesn’t actually know him, but so what? Feelings are feelings. That is until Josh appears… and he’s soooooo CUTE. Navigating her two crushes and her middle school life, especially with eighth-grade hater Renee around, is a challenge. And oh yeah, she’s got to earn money for an AWESOME trip to the Bahamas to see the band of her dreams. Hello???? How much can one thirteen-year-old take???

This book was great! I love music so I can totally sympathize with Emma.

My favorite character is Dianna because she is a wonderful sister. Whatever Emma needs from her she does it without complaint. 

My favorite part is when Emma submits her lyrics to the contest because it's a really important moment in the series. 
I recommend this book for anyone who likes music, stories of family and friends, and lots of funny moments.

I give this book 4 stars and recommend 11 and up.
