One night. 
One stupid mistake. 
Changes everything.

SAMMY STEVENS was tragically orphaned at the age of nine and sent to live with a foster family in the town of Miakoda Falls. She's bullied at school by the arrogant, selfish, one and only... KAI JORDAN.

Kai is your typical entitled teen who's on the verge of attending University and having everything he ever wanted handed to him.

But that all changes when he is involved in a car accident after a night of partying...

He's suddenly and painfully brought into the world of supernatural.

Kai turns to the last person he ever would've expected, Sammy, as he struggles with his new identity and watches the people closest to him move on. And he is forgotten.

As Kai and Sammy grow closer, Kai must figure out a way to either stay human or risk being stuck forever, as a prisoner of his own body… 

My Thoughts - Story
Have you ever read a book without reading the synopsis?


I skimmed the first part of the synopsis and agreed to read and review…just think of my surprise when I found out that this had a touch of the supernatural to it.



It wasn’t a bad surprise because this story was adorable – it had everything in one – a life lesson, a beautiful love story, a coming of age and beauty.  If I was back in school – I would say there were a few parables we could all from in this.


I loved Sammy’s character and grew to love Kai – just a sweet story all the way around!


Kai is the bad boy in high school who torments others – especially Sammy.


Then one night everything changes, Kai gets a lesson on what happens to those who don’t appreciate others.  Who better than Sammy to show Kai what life is really about?


She is the only one who he can trust and puts his life in her hands.
