's review

it was amazing

As soon as that first sentence is read, you're unable to put down this book. It's a very unique genre. One would try to classify it as historical fiction, tantalizingly laced with paranormal aspects. While the story is being told, in present tense, reading it I sometimes forgot that the ship they were on was actually the Titanic, until some critical moments, and then suddenly you remember the big, almost silent part of the plot; the doomed voyage. My hands were literally so sweaty with anticipation by the last 20 pages that i had a hard time keeping a grip on the book. I love the flow of Fateful, how the details of everything, the characters seem so real. Claudia's really outdone herself this time.

Rebecca I agree!

~Tina~ Wonderful review! Is this a stand alone?

Leah (Jane Speare) Yes it is a stand alone. It doesn't leave you hanging or anything. ;)

~Tina~ Sounds good! Can't wait to read this:)

Books Over Sleep how did u get a ARC?

Leah (Jane Speare) Through my local Independent bookstore. They ordered it for me because I reviewed Afterlife as well last year. I work for them doing reviews for lots of YA books.

Rebecca I got mine from the publisher, since I have a review blog.

Leah (Jane Speare) Nice, that's pretty cool.

I Believe it (the hook on the first sentence part) There is something about her writing that pulls you in. I love it! I can't wait to read this one!
