Torn between two realities.

A choice that will mean life or death.

She won't know anything ... until she wakes up.

College sophomore, Lila Spencer lived Friday night twice.  She doesn't know how or why, just that she did.  As if she split in half and went in two different directions.

Out clubbing with her friends, Heather and Nilah, the girls rock it out and party hard.  What begins as an innocent night will lead to a deadly fight for their lives, and Lila might be their only chance for survival.

In bed with her boyfriend, Jay, Lila is safe and warm as she drifts to sleep in the arms of the man she loves.  Until she is sucked into a horrifying nightmare of her friends' deaths.

As the sunlight warms her face on Saturday morning, the two scenarios collide.  But there can only be one outcome.  Will she wake up in her warm bed with Jay by her side, devastated and grieving for her friends?  Or was she there to save them?

The answer is just the beginning.

Two choices, one could send you in one path and the other could send you on a completely different one. Each one having dire consequences. What would you do if you woke up having lived an actual nightmare? This is Lila's story.

I love Lila for several different reasons. One, she's a strong female lead and two she already has a good relationship with her boyfriend Jay. It was so nice to start a book where the girl and guy were already an established couple. She also has two best friends that she lives with at college. 

When Jay first arrives on the scene he seemed a little off to me. In fact I was thinking something completely different and negative about him. Then the Author explains his back story and we delve into his past on a deeper level. We find out why he is the way he is and that in actuality, is a very good guy that loves Lila deeply.

Lila being the kind of person she is does everything to stop the nightmare from either happening to her, her friends or to others. She's willing to put herself on the line in order to save everyone. 

This book kept me guessing and never knowing exactly what was going to happen. I love being wrong and hate the predictable. The Author wove a story for us that is so unlike anything out there right now. It was a breath of fresh air. Great book by Megan Hand, read it, you won't regret it! 

4 out of 5 stars

At twelve, Megan decided to write a novel.  A month later, she quit.  A reading junkie by nature, she started writing again in her twenties as a way to get the voices out, because who wouldn't want to create a Real Living Person out of thin air?  Megan also plays the piano and sings.  She teaches little kids and takes pictures of pretty butterflies.  She eats way too much chocolate, is sort of a made scientist with her blender, and spends an unhealthy amount of time LOLing on Facebook and Twitter.  She lives in Ohio with her husband and very smiley son.  Bitter Angel is her first published novel.
