I read this book in a couple of days and enjoyed it very much. However, my problem with this book was the number of typos. I don't know if proofing is the responsibility of the author or the publisher, but this book was full of typos and misused words. I was dissappointed in the fact that I sometimes had to read sentences two or three times to understand what the author really meant to say. The author and the publisher should be ashamed for letting something go out without doing better proofing. Other than that, the story line was very good.

Lorelei is dead. A silly juvenile adventure turned bad and now she is dead at 16. How very sad! Yet Lorelei lives in Paradise, personality and body intact, not yet ready to climb the stairs to the glories that await her. She is not ready to give up her earthly life and Pete, her guide in Paradise, gives her two ways to return (not really) to her former life. Two windows, a Golden Window and a Silver Window allow her to be a part of the life she once had. The Golden Window allows her to watch her family and friends go about their daily lives now that she is gone. Here she watches her father, the recipient of her heart, find the other people who received Lorelei’s organs. It eases Lorelei’s mind to meet them through her dad. However, she finds things out about her father that no child should ever have to know about a parent. Perhaps the Golden Window reveals too much. The Silver Window lets her see how life would have been had she not had the accident and died. Of course, her father would not have lived if Lorelei had survived. Events from both windows have a ripple effect just like the circular ripples that occur when a stone is dropped into a pool, ever widening, ever creating new situations; affecting people’s lives well beyond the immediate events in the story. Lorelei sees the joy that the gift of her organs gives others and believes that she may have been born to save the lives of others.
This novel is a delightful read for teens and adults alike. I couldn’t stop reading once I started. It gives factual information about organ donation and transplant through an excellent story format delving into the lives of teens and their relationships with peers and family. I highly recommend this novel to all ages.
