The book Between by Jessica Warman is about a 17 year old girl named Liz having her 18th birthday party on a ship her parents own. During the party, it is just her and a bunch of her friends hanging out and they are drinking too! Then when Jessica wakes up outside on the deck, she sees that when she is yelling, no one can hear her. She sees herself under the boat and she has no idea what is going on. That is until a guy that went to Liz’s school, who had died in a car accident, showed up and told her that she had died sometime during the party!

Liz has no idea what happened, she remembers nothing and neither does Alex. As police and detectives search for any clues to how she died, Liz and Alex are already going back in time to see all things that might have lead up to her death or how she even died. As they go on and time passes, they see that Liz’s sister starts to date Liz’s boyfriend Richie. When this relationship is going on, weird things start to happen and clues start to come from everyone. What if the person that killed you was closer than you thought?

I loved this book because it always kept me on my feet and wanting to read more and more every time. Also, it has a lot of drama between friendships and relationships. I would recommend this book to anyone, because it isn’t very girly or doesn’t have a lot of boy stuff in it. It’s just a great and thrilling read!
