Overview

Dying to Forget by Trish Marie Dawson

Sometimes the day you die is only the beginning...

Piper Willow dies the summer after her high school graduation and wakes in the afterlife at a place called the Station. She's given only two choices: Move on to the unknown where she'll be forced to spend an eternity in her own personal hell, or be trained as a Volunteer and return to Earth as the subconscious for a person in need of outside assistance. Does Piper have what it takes to save a life, to be the nagging voice inside another person's head? Or will she fail and end up lost and tormented...forever?

About the Author

Trish was born and mostly raised in San Diego, California, where she lives now with her family and pets. She began writing short stories and poetry in high school after an obsession with Stephen King's 'The Stand'. After over fifteen years of crazy dreams and an overactive imagination, she began her first book, 'I Hope You Find Me', in December of 2011. It was then that her first Fantasy series was born.

When she is not writing and researching, or editing and formatting, she's homeschooling her children, reading during her free-time, and enjoying the Southern California sun.

She's an animal lover, and regularly saves mice, lizards and birds from her three rescue dogs, Zoey, Bear and Kaylee. They all share the house with River, the rescue cat, who is part dog and part old man.

Interesting twist on a tough topic

The subject of suicide is always hard, so I was pleased that this book helps to put a more positive twist to on something horrible .

Suicide, is it an act of courage? Despair? The coward’s way out? The ultimate sin? What if you had the chance to redeem yourself in the “afterlife” by preventing others from taking this final step? Piper has had a rough life and she just couldn’t take one more thing being added to the growing list of painful events, she commits suicide, but “awakens” to the opportunity to help others by being that tiny voice in their head like a conscience, common sense, confidence. Dying to Forget by Trish Marie Dawson bravely takes a dark subject and gives it a spin that holds surprises, and a few light moments for her characters. With some intriguing world building and pretty good plotting, Ms. Dawson leads Piper on a journey into the unknown, testing her ability to protect her first assignment, although she admits to be clueless as to how to do that! Oh, and her first assignment is a guy! Talk about a great twist! Can she take what she knows and save her assignment? A few minor bumps in the flow, but this is the first book of a series and now that the foundation has been set, I see some real “reading escape” potential in this YA read as Piper charmed me with her inner dialogue and desire to succeed!

Overall, this was an incredible novel. The writing was a bit clumsy at times, and some scenes were cliche and felt like they were plucked out of a bad movie, but I still enjoyed the story immensely. It was a quick read with some heavy emotional resonance. I'll definitely be reading the rest of the series. I saw the ending coming, but damn, was it still a kicker!

Very short story but very good

This is a hard hitting novel about teen suicide. I'm an old grandpa but it brought tears to my eyes. The writing is quite good, and I say that as someone who's published 25 novels with Ace. The premise is quite interesting, those who have arrived early, taken their own life, have a second chance. To get it, they are sent back to help suicidal people of their own age group. It's tough, but any teenager who finds him or her self haunted by thoughts like these should read this book.
