The Space Between Heartbeats - Melissa Pearl

Nicole Tepper can't remember what happened at the party she was at last night, but it must've been bad because her mother and her friends are giving her the silent treatment. Or so she thinks.

Nicole is trapped between life and death. Her body is down a steep embankment in the woods but in her ghost-like state she is wandering the school searching for answers. Only one person can hear her and that's Dale Finnegan - the guy she has relentlessly bullied. He goes to great lengths to help Nicole.

This was a quick, suspenseful page-turner!


I love this:
"Hard for you?" My sarcasm drips off every syllable, like melted caramel on a sundae - thick and delicious.
