Through to You thoroughly captures the essence of a science fiction romance. Hainsworth tells her story through the character of high schooler, Camden Pike. His girlfriend had just died from a car crash that was actually caused by him. And as he becomes more haunted by the issue, he revisits the site of her death. He then encounters a transparent apparition named Nina Larson who comes from a different dimension than Camden. She accidentally stumbled through a portal and into his dimension. She actually comes from a world completely opposite of his, where his girlfriend is still alive. He travels to Nina’s dimension, and the novel encompasses their journey and the difficulties they face. I loved the concept of the plot but in the end found that it was a little disappointing. The book is incredibly slow paced. The actual plot begins barely before the fifty percent mark. And the beginning of the book consists of the repetitive depressing attitude. Cam consistently blames himself for her death. But overall, the book was a pretty good read if you have nothing else to do.

Miracle by Elizabeth Scott this girl named Megan goes to a soccer camp away from where she lives. When she is coming back from this camp on her plane with all her friends the plane crashes. She was the only survivor in this plane crash. When she wakes up again she is in a hospital with all her family and friends but doesn’t remember a thing. At first she has problems with going back to school but when she gets better she tries a therapist later on in the book, which helps her and her family understand her. Everyone she knows thinks of her as “Miracle Megan” but she doesn’t want to be known like that. She doesn’t even feel anything at all. When all her memories come back she is scared and doesn’t know whom to turn to so she can tell them what she remembers. I would recommend this book to anyone my age! It’s a really great book because it encourages people that when you at your lowest point, you should never give up.
