Trance

( 24 )

Overview

Ashlyn Greenfield has always known when bad things are going to happen. Each time that familiar tingling at the back of her neck begins, she knows what's to come-a trance. She's pulled in, blindsided, an unwilling witness to a horrible upcoming event. But she's never been able to stop it-not even when the vision was of her mother's fatal car accident. When soulful Jake enters Ashlyn's life, she begins having trances about another car accident. And as her trances escalate, one thing becomes clear: it's up to her ...

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Stacey Hayman
Ashlyn was driving the night she and her mom were hit by another car. Ashlyn survived with serious injuries, but her mother died soon after impact. Adding to Ashlyn's guilt is the belief that she could have prevented the accident if she had listened to her older sister, Kyra. Kyra and Ashlyn have shared equal parts of a single vision since they were little, and Kyra had been trying to share her half of the vision, but Ashlyn was too distracted by boy trouble to pay attention. Now that she's recovered from her physical injuries, Ashlyn needs to find a way to recover from her psychological injuries, but without the help of her absentee dad or her sister, who has gone into hiding. Hoping a return to her job at ShutterBugz will provide a much-needed distraction, Ashlyn finds that and more—she may have been given the key to understanding her visions, in addition to gaining two new friends. Reader's looking for a story that does not require their focused attention will be satisfied with this selection. There's nothing particularly good or bad about the story line, characters, or ending, but none of these things are remarkably engaging either. The sisters' vision-sharing has potential; Ashlyn's possible boyfriend, Jake, and her coworker, Gina, deserve more attention; and the purpose of the visions needs clarity before what will most surely become a series can truly pop. Reviewer: Stacey Hayman
Children's Literature - Cara Chancellor
Ashlyn's relationship with her father has never been strong, but it has gotten spectacularly worse since the car accident eight weeks ago that killed Ashlyn's mom. Even though the police arrested the drunk driver at fault, Ashlyn—who was behind the wheel—cannot help but feel responsible. The night before the wreck was the first time she did not share her twin sister Kyra's trance, because Ashlyn was drunk. The visions always have come to both of them simultaneously. Always, they each see half the vision and scribble down undecipherable numbers. This time, however, only Kyra saw: Their mother; A car accident; But not when or where. And when she tried to tell hung-over Ashlyn, whose head was full of the kiss she had shared with her crush, Ashlyn did not listen. Now their mother is dead, and Kyra has departed to a secret location in hopes of stopping the trances. Only, the trances have not stopped, and the more Ashlyn learns about numerology from a new coworker, the more she thinks she might be able to intervene in the events she sees. When Ashlyn's new friend Jake starts appearing in her visions, Ashlyn is sure she has a second chance. Even if she can find Kyra, though, can the two of them unravel the clues in time? Gerber's thriller/love story/grief narrative is expertly constructed, if imperfectly concluded. The pages of numbers scribbled during the girls' trances play only the smallest of roles in the resolution, and Ashlyn's reunion with Kyra is more of a flicker instead of a bonfire. That said, teenage readers are unlikely to worry about either inconsistency in the face of Gerber's intense narrative pace and the crackling chemistry between Ashlyn and Jake. This is one "Trance" readers will find difficult to break. Reviewer: Cara Chancellor

    WOW!

    A girl named Ashlyn was in a car accident with her mom. Her mom died and she is having flashbacks of the accident and also is seeing ahead of her. She is driving in the car with her friend Kyra and she's freaking out on her. So Kyra takes her home with her and is trying to help her through school and with her life. Her dad moved to Michigan when they were little and left her and her mom so she doesn't talk to him. She decides to live with her best friend Kyra.
    in my book is one of the best selling author's in New York City. Linda Gerber in my opinion is a very good author she pulls readers in and makes you want to read the book more. Also she uses very descriptive words which are awesome.
    I really like this book. It uses very descriptive words and pulls you into the book and makes you want to read more. That is why I like this book.
    This was a great book!!! Especially for people who love mystery's. Also if you like good quotes or phrases it has a lot of those in it.

    Overall this book was a really good book. Especially because it's good if someone has ever been in a car accident and lost someone or something. It is one of the best books I've read yet and I recommend it to anyone who loves intense explanation book!!

    it was okay..

    there's a major hole in the story that's impossible to ignore once you get to it and the writing's kind of stiff.

    Great book

    Trance is one book that captivated me. Ashyln's character not only seemed real but one that you can relate with right away. Ashlyn's life has been tough. After a bad car accident, her family is torn apart. Left with dealing with her powers on her own, she must overcome the guilt and fear she has in order to save someone she loves.

    Ashlyn has been though so much after the accident. She tries to be strong and move on, but the guilt of the night that happen plays into her mind over and over again. She does anything and everything to get her mind off it. She is alone. I hated that she is alone. She needed someone. Even though they blamed her for the accident, Ashyln needed guidance as well. I was upset that her father didn't take more care for than what he did.


    The way the love part played out with her visions was perfect. I loved how it all tied in with the car accident. That I did not see coming at all. I was totally shocked and just awed. When you read the story, you only her Ashyln's POV. After reading the ending and how it truly panned out I understood. The love between Jake and Ashyln is real and true. I like how she did not allow the car accident affect how she felt about Jake. She loved him no matter what happen. True love. It always fixes everything.

    An OK Read...But Not Something Rememberable

    This book was OK. The characters were well thought out. I didn't really connect with them though. I enjoyed reading it, but do not remember all the details. Because they didn't stick with me. But it has a good plot and chain of events.

    Slip into the Trance

    This was such a quick fun read. I flew through it in about half a day. Ashlyn is dealing with the death of her mother. Her sister, who she has always be so close to, took off as soon as it happened. Now Ashlyn is alone in the house with only her father, who stays locked away in his office or at work. She's trying to get back to her regular routine, working, etc., but suddenly the trances are back. Can she prevent the death this time?

    I had originally gave this book a 5 rating, but having read it recently, I find that I'm already forgetting most of it and had to refresh my memory just to begin this review. Since it was so forgettable, I had to take it down to a 4.

    The romance was very sweet and developed in a very natural way, which is something I really look for in YA anymore. The reason behind Ashlyn's trances was explained very well and was really unique to me. I loved the kooky pregnant girl that Ashlyn works at the photo place in the mall. She was probably my favorite part of the book.

    Overall, this was a entertaining read, and very enjoyable. I was able to dive through it no time and it was a great way to send a few hours. Also, while this book is definitely YA, it's also great for MG as well. It's very clean and touches on learning to deal with lose and learning to find yourself.

    This is an exciting but strange tale

    The car accident left her mom dead and Ashlyn hurt mentally because she believes with her visions combined with that of her sister Kyra she could have prevented the tragedy. She looks back to growing up when she and her sibling learned to hide their cursed trances and the number they would write down.

    Meanwhile Kyra has cut Ashlyn off, which leaves the latter believing more so she failed her mom and her family. Her father buries himself at work, which leaves Ashlyn feeling further isolated. She feels completely alone despite her efforts to connect with her father and find her sister. Unable to relate when Jake wants to know her better, Ashlyn goes deeper into her shell. Co-worker, Gina tutors her on numerology, which Ashlyn hopes will enable her to interpret the vision and prevent another tragedy as she sees another car accident occurring this time to Jake.

    This is an exciting but strange tale as the siblings slowly come to somewhat understand their visions and the numbers they write down while in a Trance. Pathos filled Ashlyn makes the teen tale terrific with her intense struggle to comprehend what the number denote. Character driven, young adult readers will empathize with Ashlyn who blames herself for her failure to interpret her vision in time to save her mom's life and hope she can this time with Jake on the line.
