|Normal can change in a moment. For 16 year old Kate Mercier
and her sister Georgia, normal is forever gone after they lose her parents in a car crash.
The new normal means moving to Paris to be with their grandparents where Georgia settles
in to her new life. Kate? Not so much. And then she meets Vincent. Beautiful,
"other" Vincent, who has been living and dying since 1940.
More than anything
I am fatally attracted to book covers which is why I initially wanted to read this
particular title. But the burning questions is, really, does Die for me have
substance over the pretty? And I think it does, I really do. The revenants
not quite ghost and not quite zombies - are not your run of the mill paranormal
characters (even if its about to become bad revanants vs. good revenants) and, yes,
the storyline is rather angst-y, but its a teen supernatural novel. I wouldnt
expect anything less. I forgive Plum for the angsty, though, because she gives me a rather
refreshing take on a subgenre paranormal romance that often makes me feel
like its much of a muchness. Yay!
