Never Again by Heather Starsong
I read this book months ago (apologies for the review delay!) and vividly remember having to talk to my mother about this one. The plot really struck me. Most creativity is sparked by 'what if' and this book is no exception. What if you were abducted by aliens? What if they made you young and healthy again? What if you had to choose between staying young and living your life again or reverting back to your previous condition?
Starsong quickly pulled me in to the plot of this book and held me firmly rooted. She has an easy reading style and she's a great storyteller. The characters are vivid and easy to identify with.
The most important part of the book for me was being able to put myself in the same position as Clara, our main character. We really get to delve deep into her psyche, which is great fun, but at the same time I have to wonder what I would do in her position. Would I make the same choices? How would I want to end my story?
If you're looking for something a little different to read, this was quick, entertaining and thought-provoking. If you feel like your life is passing you by too quickly, take the ride through Clara's life and try to gain some new perspective.
I've added Starsong's other book, Leaves in Her Hair, to my 'to buy' list.
