The In Between by Olivia Pierce is a young-adult paranormal romance story. It is about Tara and Justin. Tara and Justin grew up together until age seven when Tara’s family moved to Tampa, Florida. At age 14 Tara, her Mother, and her sister, Meg, moved back to Heron. Tara did not really reconnect with Justin until the summer before their junior year. At the lake Justin has a bad accident and needs CPR. Tara is the only person around who knows CPR and administers it to Justin. This begins the romance between them. Unfortunately, on the night of the Homecoming Dance there is a car accident and Justin dies. Instead of going directly to Heaven, Justin is stuck In Between. In Between is a grey world that is not Heaven, nor Hell”. Justin is told that he must complete a mission in order to go to Heaven. This is a sweet (and, sometimes, a little sappy) romance. Justin and Tara are very young but are soul mates and meant to be together. Justin will do whatever it takes to get back to Tara. The authors take on Heaven, Hell, and “in between” (most people would call it purgatory) are unique and different from normal perceptions. I liked In Between and will definitely look for more books by Olivia Pierce.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
