Book Review! Collide by Michelle Madow

Collide by Michelle Madow
Genre: Young Adult (Science Fiction/Fantasy Romance)
Date Published: February 9, 2017
Publisher: Dreamscape Publishing

I should have died when I was shot at the Halloween dance. 

Instead I woke up—one week earlier, in a parallel universe where my mom's fatal car accident six months ago never happened. 

A world with my mom still in it was all I ever wanted. But in this timeline, everything is different—my grades, my friends, and even my boyfriend. I'm a stranger in my own body, and I don’t like who I’ve become. 

But one thing is the same—that shooting will still happen at the end of the week. 

I'm the only one who knows. Which means I'm the only one who can stop it. 

But first I need to convince someone—anyone—that I’m telling the truth... and then get them to help me. 

Collide by Michelle Madow is one of those books that easily sweeps you away from reality. It's Fantasy, Sci-fi, and Romance with some mystery thrown in. I was completely pulled into Anna's Worlds. Anna's character has had some tragedy in her life, but she's a strong girl. She takes nothing for granted. I enjoyed her friends, for the most part. I don't think they'd all believe her quite so easily and quickly in real life though. The whole idea of time travel/other dimensions is very interesting to me, and in the context of this story, it makes a nice fantasy that would be awesome if it were real. Who wouldn't want a chance to see loved ones again?

The story was very fast paced, and I felt completely invested in the outcomes & lives of these characters. At first, the ending was abrupt. I had more questions than answers, and I was beyond disappointed and frustrated. BUT, there is an epilogue on the author's website! This epilogue is much needed! It answered my questions and tied up lose ends. So, if you've read this book already and your version didn't have the epilogue, go to her site and read it! You'll be so glad you did. If you haven't read the book yet, don't you dare read the epilogue until you read the book! This book was originally supposed to be a stand alone, but I've heard rumor it might become a series. We'll see. If more happen, I'll be anxious to read them as well.
