Synopsis via Goodreads

Why’d I do it? I suppose it’s the only question that really matters.

Seventeen-year-old Crow will stop at nothing to protect her younger sister—even if it costs her her own life. But then she’s given a chance to come back and make things right. There are a few catches, though. First, she won’t come back as herself. And before she can set things straight, she’ll have to figure out what’s what—and things aren’t exactly as clear-cut as she remembered.

Powerful and hard-hitting, this is a compelling story about what it means to live your life--for your own sake--from an award-winning author.


First off, there is something I find very striking about this cover. However, I'm not sure how much I actually like it, yet. Moving on though, I love that this synopsis has just enough to hook my attention but also doesn't seem to give too much away. And the heroine's name is Crow. Odd, but I kinda like it. I'm very curious to see where this book will end up leading me. Unfortunately, I have got a very long wait ahead of me.

What do you think?

I like the look of this one! The concept sounds cool, and I gravitate towards books about sister bonds- and I guess this is an afterlife sort of story as well. I'm intrigued!

OMG! I find the cover amazing! And the synopsis sounds very mysterious!

Hmm I'm not sure about this one. I wish it explained what the book is about a bit more. I'll have to keep my eye on this one.

I love the sound of this story-I'd do almost anything for my younger sister so I'm eager to track Crow's movements.
