Between by Clarissa Johal

BetweenBetween by Clarissa Johal
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

As a young girl, Lucinda was able to see spirits, a gift that didn’t come without its problems.

I love a good ghost story, and this one did not disappoint. Though, in Between there is so much more going on than just ghosts. Really it was a story of learning to trust yourself as well as good versus evil.

I absolutely love the author's colorful descriptions. I've heard the saying painting a picture with words, and that is exactly what the author does here. Each sentence is vivid and alive. The settings were lavishly drawn, and the author was able to take the characters out of her imagination and bring them to life. I really liked Lucinda. She was a great lead, though she was not perfect; she made mistakes, like any normal person would.

The other thing I really enjoyed about this story is that I had no idea which way it was headed. I hate being able to predict a book's ending halfway through, and with Between I was left guessing. Though I enjoyed how the story ended, I felt it was a bit abrupt. I would have loved a little bit more there to close things up. Overall a great story and one I would recommend.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
