Airyn awakes and she knows that she is dead. A boy appears, Trent, who tells her he is her Keeper. He is to help her decide whether to go to heaven, or as they call it Home, with all her memories of her life or to forget everything. He takes her to a room that is filled with pictures from her life and file cabinets. Inside these file cabinets are the memories of every moment of her life, from every shoe she dreamed of wearing to the wounds she wanted to forget.
During her time in this room, though time does not exist in the conventional way, she recalls her life and the good memories she had with Trent. Trent eventually broke down and shared that his life was not full of joy. Trent has already made his decision - to forget. However, Airyn and Trent have fallen in love and if he choses to forget, he will forget her.
What happened to Trent and Airyn to cause them to be in Heaven at such a young age? Will Trent's decision affect Airyn's decision and what will Airyn ultimately chose? While both came from the same town of Arlington, Massachusetts, they do not know each other but what happens in their lives that weaved them together, fated in Heaven?
I GIVE THIS BOOK: β β β 1/2 out of 5βs
Wow! What an amazing and imaginative story to come from a high school junior. The way the author weaves the lives of Trent and Airyn was unexpected. The author did a good job describing the type of people Trent and Airyn are, however some excerpts were not necessary and confused me because I thought they would have something to do with the plot but it was not needed to define the characters. I never imagined the end, but I wonder if Airyn knows how Trent took part in her life and would that have changed her decision? She knows how he died but not the circumstances that caused a ripple effect in the town of Arlington. One thing that I really disliked about the book were the curse words. I guess I imagined it would be disrespectful to curse in Heaven. It would have been cool to get a glimpse of who Airyn would be the Keeper of...can you say sequel?!
If you don’t believe me, check it out for yourself!
Until next time, take life one page at a time!
