Besides Kristen White's trilogy, most paranormal YA books are rather dark and moody. This isn't quite paranormal which is fresh and interesting. It's not quite dark but definitely moody. It begins with Cam trying to plod through life after a car accident that killed his girlfriend, Viv. Cam's a downer. Life will never be good again because Viv was all of his life. He had football but blew out his knee. It still hurts. So he sits on the corner of the scene of the accident and smokes. And broods. Then one day he sees an apparition of a girl. Could be...? But it's not. It's a stranger. But there is a portal to an alternative reality. Cool.

What I liked about this book is the exploration of "what if..." If things were different and Cam made different choices, what would his life look like? In the alternate reality, there it is. Who he knew as Viv, through different choices, blossoms into a person different than the Viv he knew, although not completely. It's the same personality, just played out differently. Oh, so interesting. I liked that the reader could experience the two worlds and understand the personalities of the main characters more clearly. Potential is a funny thing. That's all I'm going to say about that.

Language is strong.
Sex has strong innuendo.
Violence is mild beyond death. Which is not violent but not detailed.
