Seven Weeks to Forever (A Love Story)by Jennifer Farwell
When Cassidy realizes she's
Cassidy Jordan won't open her heart to anyone, and with good reason. She's a second-timer, returned from the afterlife after a devastating romance caused her death. All that stands between her and eternity is finding someone named Riley Davis and helping him get his life on track. But nobody told her helping Riley would mean dating him.
When Cassidy realizes she's falling for Riley, she's faced with a choice: give him the life he's meant for and leave this life when it's time, or give up eternity for the true love she's never had, knowing Riley will die the same way she did in her first life and that her entire existence could end at any time.
In this supernatural teen romance, author Jennifer Farwell explores the unstoppable power of young love. Readers who enjoyed books like If I Stay (Gayle Forman) or The Celestine Prophecy (James Redfield) may find their perfect summer read in Seven Weeks to Forever.
"Candid first-person narration helps draw readers into Cassidy's mind, inviting them along on her journey of discovery--both of herself and of what it means to be in love. Lovely imagery..." (Publishers Weekly)
An excerpt from Chapter Five:
It's as though I'm under a spell as I put one foot in front of the other, feeling Riley's hand pressed against the small of my back. My body is going crazy with the tingling I feel. I must stumble, because he steadies me and we stop a few feet away from my front door. I find myself moving even closer to him, and for a moment, I'm not Cassidy. There's something familiar in the energy I feel. Riley's face blurs in front of me, and then there's the outline of a face I used to know well.
The outline I can see looks like David. The last time I stood in a driveway about to kiss someone, it was him. I want to say his name, but I can't move my lips. Then my vision clears and it's Riley in front of me again, his head bending down and his eyes holding mine. The energy pull between us is magnetic, and I hold my breath when his fingertips come up to my chin.
This can't happen. I try to tell myself that, but the rest of me isn't listening. My eyes close and every nerve in my body seems to hum as I wait for what's coming.

Made no sense. Very stupid story.

Great cheaters with a really unique problem. I loved the surprise ending
I liked this book alot & would like to have a book 2. I liked how the book started with Noah & Cassidy sitting on clouds and discussing life. How is going to be starting over with a new family & getting asecond chance. Cassidy, lived life by pushing everyone away, until Riley, her and Noah going back and forth between each other was funny at times. Riley, having Cassidy questioning everyone & everything was also funny and very serious attimes. Thesetwo had definit chemistry. Dont want to give to much info but this is a book I would definitely recommend & reread.
Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite Seven Weeks to Forever is a young adult romantic paranormal fantasy written by Jennifer Farwell. Cassidy knows that she'll be dying yet again in another seven weeks. She's living in the house in Los Angeles that her parents left her, far from the Boston home she grew up in and the aunt and uncle who took her in as a small child many years before. Cassidy loves music and enjoys going to concerts. A particular pet peeve of hers is when a tall guy blocks her view of the stage like this one is doing. After all, she's rather diminutive in size, and he could easily let her stand in front. After she manages to get herself out of his shadow and the concert has ended, she notices something shiny on the ground. It's a student ID that just happens to belong to Riley, the blocker. Her Life-After handler, Noah, tells her that Riley is her assignment as a Second-Timer on earth and already she's annoyed with him. Jennifer Farwell's young adult romantic paranormal fantasy, Seven Weeks to Forever, is a powerful and moving sweet romance. The author has fashioned a fascinating mythology about the afterlife that fuels the plot for her story. Cassidy loves the Life-After and is going through the movements as a Second-Timer, almost as if she's serving time, just waiting to be released and to be allowed to return. The reader is privy to her innermost thoughts and feelings as she works so hard to remain disengaged from life. Her unwilling romance with Riley, another damaged soul, is beautifully orchestrated as the two learn to trust and love again. Farwell's writing style is fluid and smooth. Once I began this compelling fantasy, I didn't want to stop until I had finished the story. It's a marvelous tale that should please both adult and young adult readers alike. Seven Weeks to Forever is most highly recommended.
