Rating: 5 stars
I died on a Thursday-killed by a monster intent on stealing my soul. The good news? He didn't get it. The bad news? Turns out not even death will get you out of high school... Covering up her own murder was one thing, but faking life is much harder than Kaylee Cavanaugh expected. After weeks spent "recovering," she's back in school, fighting to stay visible to the human world, struggling to fit in with her friends and planning time alone with her new reaper boyfriend. But to earn her keep in the human world, Kaylee must reclaim stolen souls, and when her first assignment brings her face-to-face with an old foe, she knows the game has changed. Her immortal status won't keep her safe. And this time Kaylee isn't just gambling with her own life....
Kaylee not only has to acclimate to her new job as a soul reclaimer, but she also has to pretend to still be alive, and it is not as easy as she thought it was going to be. It is a good thing she has her friends to help her.
I thought Before I Wake was slightly creepier than the previous books in the series. And, as always, I just loved Tod. There was one scene toward the end of the book that was a bit confusing. And I'm very curious about Luca.
Overall, Before I Wake was a great book, but I think If I Die is still my favorite.
