Olga Gay Worontzoff left the Underworld for her final year of high school anxious for things to return to normal, but fate has other plans.
The new hottie at school reads her thoughts but nobody else’s. Her best friend wakes up from his coma acting like a completely different person. Caught in a world that’s a mix of familiar and supernatural, she must confront what she will—or won’t—do to bring him back and stare down her own perceived inadequacies to face a couple of tenacious demons, figurative and literal.
Everything she thought she knew about reality will change as she walks the line between past and present, fear and faith, love and loyalty.
And by the end of a heartbreaking year, she might be forced to realize “normal” in the conventional sense of the word is the one thing she may never achieve.

I was given the opportunity to read and review not just this book but the first two books prior to this one as well. Thank you Curiosity Quills Press for this opportunity. I can not put into words how grateful I am. I am one of those readers who feels like they HAVE to read books in order unless of course unknowingly it happens but then I still feel bad. Unfortunately I am only 60% done with the first book so I have not actually read this book. I am getting to it and I WILL read it and leave a review. I apologize for not having read it in time for this post I overloaded myself and just couldn’t read fast enough. However I still wanted the book to have a spotlight on my blog so I am still posting. I also am still going to say if you haven’t read these books I think you should. The first one alone is amazing thus far! I will post full reviews of each book once they are completed. Thanks for dropping by!!
About Jamie Ayres:
Jamie Ayres writes young adult paranormal love stories by night and teaches young adults as a public school teacher by day.
When not at home on her laptop or at school, she can often be found at a local book store grabbing random children and reading to them. So far, she has not been arrested for this.
She lives in southwest Florida with her prince charming, two children (sometimes three based on how Mr. Ayres is acting), and a basset hound. She spent her youthful summers in Grand Haven, Michigan and this setting provided the inspiration for her debut novel, 18 Things.
She really does have grandmothers named Olga and Gay but unlike her heroine, she’s thankfully not named after either one of them. She loves lazy pajama days, the first page of a good book, stupid funny movies, and sharing stories with fantastic people like you. Visit her website at http://www.jamieayres.com
