This book was awful, the chapters were labeled stay and go and when it changed chapters it didn't even make sense, it was horrendous. I didn't get what happened when her grandma died. I didn't even know what happened. I was so confused. I don't recommend this book. So many other books are better than this one in MY opinion but it doesn't mean you think so.

This book was okay. It's sometimes hard to process the two plot lines at the same time. A lot of the stuff in this book is too spontaneous that nothing really connects well.

Nice book. I HATED Caroline's character though. She always got mad and hurt when she THOUGHT Joel or Chris were cheating on her or something, but she was always cheating on both of them.....

Very confusing.
Had to read it twice.

The book starts out with a bang - Caroline finds out her grandmother is in the hospital because she's had a stroke. We know what is going to happen in the story, but the authors really throw you in instead of working up to the pivot point. And let me just say that this story TOTALLY didn't go where I was expecting it to. I think I thought this was going to be more of a fast-paced thriller where she has to choose which reality she wants to live in, and not the exploration of human relationships that it was. And I absolutely loved that that's what it was! I was pleasantly surprised by the ending to this book, and the message it sent. I won't say why, not even a hint because it's the sort of book you need to not know anything of the ending for it to work well as a book. It wasn't the message I'd been expecting, and it's a message that I think will stay with me for a long time.

I couldn't recommend this book more highly!

Really good. So interesting, how the two 'lives' are parallel. I loved that- it adds this extra twist/drama to it. For someone who does believe in God and His planning, it was so interesting- a little taste of what maybe is real, since I believe that God plans out my life...
One seemed more real then the other though and so I think I know which she picked...
Very cool.
