Title: Through To You
Author: Emily Hainsworth
Release Date: October 2, 2012
Publisher: Balzer + Bray (HC imprint)
A romantic sci-fi thriller about love and second chances.
Camden Pike has been grief-stricken since his girlfriend, Viv, died.
Viv was the last good thing in his life: helping him rebuild his
identity after a career-ending football injury, picking up the pieces
when his home life shattered, and healing his pain long after the pain
meds wore off. And now, he’d give anything for one more glimpse of her.
But when Cam makes a visit to the site of Viv’s deadly car accident, he
sees some kind of apparition. And it isn’t Viv.
The apparition’s name is Nina, and she’s not a ghost. She’s a girl
from a parallel world, and in this world, Viv is still alive. Cam can’t
believe his wildest dreams have come true. All he can focus on is
getting his girlfriend back, no matter the cost. But things are
different in this other world: Viv and Cam have both made very different
choices, things between them have changed in unexpected ways, and Viv
isn’t the same girl he remembers. Nina is keeping some dangerous
secrets, too, and the window between the worlds is shrinking every day.
As Cam comes to terms with who this Viv has become, and the part Nina
played in his parallel story, he’s forced to choose—stay with Viv or let
her go—before the window closes between them once and for all.
What drew me in straight away was the cover, the darkness at the bottom mixed with the pale green. The girl confuses me a little, I thought the book was more about Camden than Viv or Nina. Hmmm. Still, it sounds interesting. What's also interesting me these days besides non-paranormal mystery thrillers is weird time travel/timeslip/parallel dimensions. They're a little off the beaten path, but still compelling.
