Guest Review by Sydney: Remembrance (Transcend Time #1) by Michelle Madow

Today is an especially exciting day on the blog for me. I had this idea of having teenagers read books from indie authors and write reviews on them. The response from the authors was amazing. I had several authors offer up their books for the cause.

I finally found a young girl more than willing to help. She's an avid reader and an aspiring author. She's already written some short stories (which someday I hope to share with you all, if she'll let me) and submitted them online.

I'm very excited to have Miss Sydney share her thoughts with us. Let's give her a round of applause!

Without further ado.

Remembrance (Transcend Time #1) by Michelle Madow
Book Cover & Summary:
Lizzie Davenport has been reincarnated from Regency Era, England ... but she doesn't know it yet.

Then Drew Carmichael transfers into Lizzie's high school, and she feels a connection to him, almost like she knows him. She can't stop thinking about him, but whenever she tries talking with him about the mysteries behind her feelings, he makes it clear that he wants nothing to do with her. Reaching him is even more difficult because she has a boyfriend, Jeremy, who has started to become full of himself after being elected co-captain of the varsity soccer team, and her flirtatious best friend Chelsea starts dating Drew soon after his arrival. So why can't she get him out of her mind?

Even though Lizzie knows she should let go of her fascination with Drew, fighting fate isn't going to be easy.

Sydney's Review:
The book Remembrance by Michelle Madow is a very thrilling romance novel.  Everything about this book draws you in. It’s a well written book, and the author describes every little detail perfectly. You get a real grasp on how the characters are feeling throughout the story.
The book starts off a little slow, but, as you progress, everything starts to fall into place. Lizzie is dating the soccer star Jeremy; they’ve been dating for three years, and everything is perfect. Except one thing ― Drew.  He’s new to their school and right when Lizzie lays eyes on him, something just clicks. Maybe it’s the fact that he just seems so familiar. Lizzie can’t seem to get her mind off of him, but she knows deep down that nothing can happen between them. She’s dating Jeremy, and Drew is dating Chelsea, her best friend. Even though she knows it’s wrong, she can’t help but fall for Drew. He’s keeping his distance though, and nothing seems to be going the way she planned. Maybe she just needs to get him out of her head, but is that possible?  Everything about him brings back small memories, but from where? All of her memories of him are from the 1800’s, but this is the 21st century. How is that even possible? She’s only a junior in high school. She wasn’t alive then, was she?
Remembrance is an excellent story. If you’re looking for an addictive book to read, here it is. I think anyone who’s into romance and mystery should definitely give this book a try. I absolutely love it, and so will you. Remembrance is book one of the Transcended Time Saga by Michelle Madow. She did a brilliant job of adding suspense to such a laid back book. The ending leaves you hanging, and makes you want to read more.
I have not been paid or compensated in any way for my reviews. Books are either my personal copies, print or downloaded, borrowed from friends, checked out at my local library, ARC’s or provided by the author or publisher for free exchange for an honest review.
