Saving Casey

I wanted to read Saving Casey from the moment I saw book trailer a few months ago. I thought it will be a great story and I was not wrong. But the plot was not at all what I expected. What I expected was that after Cass Goldman wakes in Casey Davidson body she would discover that Casey was a rich spoiled kid who needed to learn a thing of two about real life. I was so wrong. Although it seems that Casey was a wild child, it turns out that, unfortunately, she was learning life lessons the hard way and that she was a fighter. Soon after reading the first ten pages I could not put the book down.

The plot is fantastic. It is fast paced and it rapidly turns from angry teenager to thriller and then becomes a courtroom drama. Readers get a coming of age story with a happily ever after at the end. It seems a lot, but the author does a magnificent job in putting it all together and delivering a great story about redemption and second chances. All the characters are great including both the good ones and bad ones. They are done magnificently and realistically.

Good stories that surpass my expectations are what make me happy as a reader. The only thing I can do in return for this author is to recommend her book. So I highly recommend Saving Casey because it is dramatic, heartbreaking, thrilling, sweet, and an interesting read. There is something for everyone in it.

Having been diagnosed with cancer, Cass Goldman decides to end her life. But instead of dying she wakes up in the body of a seventeen-year-old girl named Casey Davidson. Given this second chance at life, Cass decides to take on the future life of Casey—the frightening ghoul-faced teen.

Every person around Cass has an ulterior motive and discovering the truth of Old Casey’s life is very complicated and painful at the same time. And the ultimate challenge is Cass's feelings for her father’s security specialist Troy.

Will Cass second life prove to be worth the struggles she has to overcome?


Book Blurb for Saving Casey

Having been diagnosed with cancer, Cass Goldman decides to opt out of any futile medical care and end her life. While she has some thoughts on afterlife, she never expects to reincarnate into the body of a seventeen-year-old girl named Casey Davidson.

When she awakens in a hospital, Cass discovers two disturbing facts: One, she is now inside the body of a troubled teenager, and two, the former owner of this body committed suicide, but only Cass knows that. Everyone else believes Casey has survived, but suffered a complete memory loss. Cass has two choices: to take on Casey’s life and turn it around, or to confess the truth about her reincarnation and end up in a mental asylum. Given this second chance to life, Cass decides to take on the future life of Casey—the frightening ghoul-faced teen with short, black, spiky hair.

Every person around Cass has an ulterior motive and discovering the truth of Old Casey’s life is more complicated than the “new math” she is forced to learn in school. In addition, Cass has to contend with raging teenage hormones and the prior crimes of Old Casey, which she might not remember, but everyone else certainly does. However, her biggest frustration concerns her feelings for her father’s rugged security specialist who sees her only as a teenager and doesn’t want to explore the mutual attraction between them.

Will her second chance at life prove to be worth the struggles she has to overcome?
