I've been in love with the same boy for a thousand years. That weird, especially since I'm only seventeen, and I can barely hold a guy's interest to the end of a five-minute conversation. Don't ask me how I've kept the same boyfriend for a millennium.
If a psychic told you about a past-life love, would you believe her? For seventeen-year-old Penny Fitzsimmons, the answer is easy.
But then her nightmares begin. Strange voices interrupt her thoughts. Coincidences mount.
What if there were things that even the psychic didn't know? What if she told you about a thousand years of love, but left out a thousand years of betrayal and tragedy? What it were up to you to shape the future before history had a chance to repeat itself? What if your best friend's life depended on it?
On a lark, Penny Fitzsimmons, 17, decides to talk with the medium at her mother’s psychic party, but after the bad dreams and visions begin, she begins to wonder if the psychic’s reading might be more than just silly fun. As if dealing with her parents’ recent divorce, her father’s recovery from alcoholism, a mind-numbing job at the grocery store and an annoying little sister are not enough, Penny must now deal with the fact that she might have been in love with the same boy for a thousand years. What begins as dizzy spells and confusing nightmares soon turns more supernatural as she is able to predict future events. Never becoming too far-fetched, McAuley’s debut braids the three ribbons of fantasy, mystery and romance into an enjoyable plait that is as smart as it is entertaining. Supernatural and real.
An intriguing book of mystery, romance, and the supernatural. All the details of Penny's life are entwined together perfectly, and the use of historical facts from the past, truly connects Penny's past lives with her present one. Penny's story becomes more and more exhilarating, which makes it a difficult to put the book down.
