The Gift

Age: Adult

Review:

Every Tuesday, between four and five, I tell lies.

– first sentence

Jenna was dying until she received Callie’s transplanted heart. Now Jenna is having feelings and visions of things Callie experienced. Everyone thinks she is crazy and Jenna even doubts her own sanity. But the feelings are getting stronger and Jenna can no longer ignore the things she remembers.

The cover claims this is, ” The Gripping Psychological Thriller Everyone is Talking About.” That implies an amazing story that you can’t put down with unexpected twists – right? Well, it doesn’t quite live up to that claim. The story is good, and the plot leads the reader to believe certain characters are guilty, but there were no jaw-dropping twists. By the end, I just wanted it to be over and didn’t really care what the devious plot was that got Callie killed.

I will say that the concept of Cellular Memory is interesting. I think I just expected more from this book. The reviews on Goodreads indicate that I am in the minority – most reviewers rave about it.
