Welcome to the book tour for Reaction by Jessica Roberts, hosted by YA Bound!
A couple of months ago, I reviewed Reflection by Jessica Roberts. (Click here to read that review.) The end of the book left us groaning with a big twist, hoping the second book would be soon available. I was eager to get my hands on this sequel!
Reaction: Reflection #2
By Jessica Roberts
Release Date: November 6, 2012
Book Description: (Spoilers if you haven't read Reflection!)
I’ve previously had that in my life, but only once, briefly, a while ago. It was during the time I’d started my first year of college. My own apartment, a new old car, and a life free of deadbeat stepfathers, all of which was fulfilling enough. But if it wasn’t, I also had a best friend, soul mate, and boyfriend all in one. Yes, life was near perfect.
But one stormy night can change everything…
For many months I rested in a prolonged sleep, fighting for my life. Well, more than fighting for it, also dreaming of it. Dreaming of him. Thank goodness, the dream is over and I’m back in the real world now. And all I want is for everything to return to the way it was. But nothing’s the same; most of all, us.
Once again, I find myself at the crossroads of a ruthless battle, this time not for life, but love. Do I fight for the guy I twice fell for, or do I let her take him away?
This book is slightly less intriguing to me than the first one, only because I was fascinated by the medical mysteries of the coma and Heather's discombobulated memories. That is my scientific mind at work, and reflective comas are completely new to me. Yet, I needed to read this in almost one sitting, because I *needed* to find out what happened to Heather. Was she going to be able to bring Nick back to her? Was she going to see Creed in a different light, as he stood by her side all those years? Was she meant to move on from them both? Or were there other possible reactive memories making her theoretical reality just another dream?
My heart hurt for Heather as she navigated all of these questions. I also found it hard to believe that so many people had no idea where she had been for all of that time, which was also sad. I thought she had more of an impact on people in her life, but then wondered how many more of those memories were mixed up.
Her jumbled up emotions make perfect sense, as she is unwillingly thrust on yet another roller coaster ride. You will root for her to finally make sense out of her own life, to find peace and happiness. If you read the first book, you must read this second one. If this book sounds interesting, you must read them both. They are incomplete without each other.
