About the Author
Sarah Beard is the author of YA novels Porcelain Keys and Beyond the Rising Tide. She earned a degree in communications from the University of Utah and is currently pursuing an MFA in writing from VCFA. When she's not writing, she referees wrestling matches between her three boys and listens to audiobooks while folding self-replicating piles of laundry. She is a breast cancer survivor, a baker of sweets, a seeker of good love stories, a composer of melancholy music, and a traveler who wishes her travel budget was much bigger. She lives with her husband and children in the shadow of the beautiful Wasatch Mountains. 
As you know, I am not fond of reading present tense. 
Also am not fond of two or three ppl telling their stories as it is confusing for me because I'm trying to figure out where this is going. 
However the cover of the book is just beautiful!
I also have never read a story about a person from the other side. It was intriguing and weird at the same time. I think the author has made her characters come alive and has done a great job in weaving the characters together to make them seem very much alive. 
I don't think many are going to be happy with my review but I'm just being honest. 
This is an excellent read for ppl who like present tense genre. Thank you for giving me a chance to read and review this book in exchange for an honest review SBL Bloggers.
