Meet the Author

Trish was born and mostly raised in San Diego, California where she lives now with her family and pets. She's been writing short stories and poetry since high school after an obsession with Stephen King's 'The Stand'. After over fifteen years of crazy dreams and an overactive imagination, Trish began her first book 'I Hope You Find Me' in December of 2011. When Trish isn't writing, she's homeschooling her amazing daughter and mildly autistic son, reading whatever she can get her hands on, or enjoying the Southern California sun. As a strict Vegetarian, Trish holds a special place in her heart for animal rights and dashes into the backyard weekly to rescue lizards and mice from her mini-lab/cocker spaniel mixed dog, Zoey...who is always getting into some sort of trouble.

Once again, I was hooked from the beginning.  Dying to Remember is the second book in The Station series and equally as amazing as the first.  This series is exceptional, emotional and thought-provoking and beautiful. The entire premise behind this series is unique, especially in YA/NA literature.  It is also unlike anything I have ever read.  The Station is exactly what it is called... a way station for those who have committed suicide.  It is neither Heaven nor Hell, nor even Purgatory in the traditional sense.  Instead, it is a place to make choices:  to move on immediately and live in eternity with the pain and sorrow that led you to suicide or to become the temporary subconscious of others still living but contemplating suicide.   Not only do we see the world through Piper's eyes, but through the eyes of those she is assigned to help.  This opens up the range of emotions from just one character to everyone whose mind Piper temporarily inhabits.  I think part of what makes these books so special is that the characters are inherently damaged.  They aren't perfect; they don't make perfect choices.  They are where they are because of horrible situations and choices, and they still strive to change.  There is a great deal of heartache and bittersweet emotions, but there is also hope. There were some mighty twists and turns with this book, right from the very beginning.  I didn't see them coming and some of them were quite the shock.  Piper's assignment in this one nearly killed me, so emotionally sad and horrific.  But, like the first book, this was a beautiful story. Things to love about Dying to Remember...    --The characters.  I love the interactions with Kerry-Anne and Mallory.  Kerry-Anne is the little sister that I would want to have and I love Mallory's compassion and caring for Piper.    --The unexpected twists and turns.  With the twists and turns came no small amount of sadness, but with many of them came hope and a new happiness.  Beautiful and deeply moving. My recommendation:  This book, like Dying to Forget, is moving and beautiful, even with the heart wrenching moments.  A must read, but not a light one.

I had trouble rating book 1, although I did give it 4 stars. It was hard for me to absorb the fact that the storyline was suicide and it was actually intriguing enough for me to purchase this 2nd book. Now, I am having no issues rating this one as I see where the author might be going with her message. Giving a second chance to help someone else or maybe not. Or maybe for her to see there's a positive in anyone but maybe they need a nudge from above. Did I say there's a 3rd book? Yes. Stay tuned......

I managed to finish this one just becsuse of the Sloan storyline, but when they threw in those twists at the end it got too weird and turned me off to the series. Needless to say, I won't be reading the rest of the series.

The character arc continued as I sort of assumed it would, no great surprises there but it was sweet and the twist at the end was a little heart-wrenching. The new character and plot that is brought in were very interesting. I wish they had been developed just a bit more but this is YA so I guess it is natural for YA authors to pull back a wee bit on the details. For instance, in two instances Piper's tantrums are condensed down to a sentence or two when they really could have been written into very powerful scenes, giving the reader a deeper understanding of Piper and her emotional distress. I would have loved to actually "hear" her going through the the 5 stages of loss and grief that I think those scenes called for. I really didn't like the ending. It felt like the book should have continued on without a break. It *almost* felt like I was having to pay to read the second half of a book that I'd already paid for. Another YA trait that I'm not fond of, cutting one long story into 3 or 4 "books". It breaks the flow and there is a lot of regurgitated information to wade through to get back into the story again. Just my preference I suppose. Overall, I liked the book and was curious where the story line was going, so I went on to read book #3. I will recommend it to others who enjoy YA books.
