Walker Callaghan doesn’t know what happened to her. One minute she was living her teenage life in suburban Chicago…and the next minute, she was in a strange place and in a brand new school with absolutely no homework, no rules, and no consequences.

Walker Callaghan, 17, is dead.

She doesn’t go to heaven or hell. She lands at The Academy, a middle realm where teenagers have one thing in common: They were the morning announcement at their high schools because they died young.

These high school kids are now caught in a strange “in-between” zone where life hasn’t changed very much. In fact, this special teen limbo looks a lot like life in a quaint Michigan town complete with jocks, popular girls and cliques. “There are even cheerleaders in death,” Walker observes. It’s not a coincidence that the music teacher is a guy named Kurt who “used to have this band.” The drama teacher, Heath, is crush worthy because back in his life, he starred in some superhero movie.

Principal King explains the rules — there are none. Why? You can’t die twice.

There is no homework.
No tests.
No SATS.
You’re just there to learn because the human brain isn’t fully formed until you’re 24.

By the way, you can’t get hurt physically, so race your Harley off that hillside. But falling in love is the most dangerous thing you can do …because no one knows how long you’ll stay in this realm or what’s next.

“Losing someone you love would be like dying twice,” Walker says.

* * * * * *
Walker Callaghan has just arrived at the Academy after a tragic car accident. “Is this heaven or is this high school?” she asks.

She finds out her new life is a bit of both as she falls in love with tat-covered, bad boy Daniel Reid who is about to break the only sacred rule of this place. He’s looking for a portal to return back to the living realm.

He needs just one hour to retrieve his younger brother who strangely never arrived at The Academy. Bobby is an Earth Bound Spirit, stuck at a plane crash site that took both of their lives as their rich father piloted his private jet nose-first into a cornfield on Christmas Eve.

Walker loves Daniel and risks it all to go with him.

Have they learned enough to outsmart dangerous forces while transporting a young child with them? Can their love survive the fragmented evil parts of themselves that are now hunting them down as they try to find a way back to the middle?

At the Academy, you learn the lessons of an after-lifetime.

Syrina’s ✩✩✩✩✩ Review!

Mind Benders/Twists

d60157c07fcb5bf7cd0ec2eb8ea6a9e3[1]

Absolutely enthralling and utterly original, this unique and refreshing story boggles the mind and takes you into a different perspective as the author takes us into different realms between heaven and hell:  PURGATORY! 

C.L. Gaber has a way with words and her style of writing completely saturates your imagination, the story is full of emotions, you get the feels, you clearly become part of each character.  The plot keeps you entertained and it flows so well you are constantly turning the page to get to the next chapter.  Gaber’s  writing style was fresh, distinct, and original.

Heros and Heroines!

Each character is written so detailed you become transfixed and racing to read more of Walker and Daniel’s journey in the afterlife or in between world as they try to come to terms with the future as they wish it.

 Be prepared to for your mind to get twisted, nicked, knacked, boggled and totally mind phucked!  All in all it was a beautiful story and I was enchanted!
