Hollywood was abuzz recently with the news that Jessica Shirvington’s bestselling Embrace series was being adapted for television by the CW Network (The Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl) and Steven Spielberg’s Amblin production company. Now Jessica is set to excite her YA fans with Between the Lives a psychological thriller that will hook you at first listen…
The perfect life or the perfect love. You choose. For as long as she can remember, Sabine has lived two lives. Every twenty-four hours she 'Shifts', living each day twice. She has one life in Wellesley, Massachusetts...and another, completely different life in Roxbury, Boston. In one life she's surrounded by glamorous friends and dresses in designer clothes, in the other her family struggles to make ends meet. In one life she’s a straight-A student with the perfect boyfriend, in the other she’s considered a reckless delinquent.
All Sabine has ever wanted is the chance to live one life. When it seems like this might finally be possible, Sabine begins a series of dangerous experiments to achieve her goal. But is she willing to risk everything – including the one man who might actually believe her?

The idea of having two parallel lives is fascinating and as happens in Jessica's Shrivington Embrace series the story is wonderfully written, keeping you interested from beginning till the end.Jessica's Shrivington way of telling the story makes you feel inside the story. When Sabine shifted from one life into the other at midnight it was as if you were there on her side.
The dilemna Sabine was facing, how to deal with two different lives in particular as a teenager, leading her to choose one and end the other and how Ethan was crucial in making her deal with it, kept my interest through the story.
Matilda Reed performed well. Each character was perfectly represented, but in my opinion Sabine was the best
Are you sure you live only one life?
I hope a sequel to the story will soon be available
