Book Spotlight: The Girl in Between

Heather read this one a few weeks ago and loved it. Here are a few of her thoughts:

"I didn't want to stop reading, I was emotionally involved in these characters and their outcome."

"Kemp has created two worlds that are indelibly linked by two strong characters. Before you even know who the boy is, you are already rooting for him. With no memories and no back story, he still stands out as someone you want to love and get to know."

"Every character seems to have a memorable presence on the page..."

Bryn Reyes is a real life sleeping beauty. Afflicted with Klein-Levin Syndrome, she suffers episodes of prolonged sleep that steal weeks, and sometimes even months, from her life. But unlike most KLS patients, she doesn’t spend each episode in a catatonic state or wake up with no recollection of the time she’s missed. Instead, Bryn spends half her life in an alternate reality made up of her memories. For Bryn, the past is a place, until one day a boy she’s never met before washes up on the illusory beach of her dreams with no memory of who he is.

But the appearance of this strange boy isn’t the only thing that’s changed. Bryn’s symptoms are worsening, her body weakening as she’s plagued by hallucinations even while awake. Her only hope of finding a cure is to undergo experimental treatment created by a German specialist. But when Dr. Banz reveals that he knows more about her strange symptoms than he originally let on, Bryn learns that the boy in her head might actually be the key to understanding what’s happening to her, and worse, that if she doesn’t find out his identity before it’s too late, they both may not survive.


  1. You had me with real live sleeping beauty, but the rest of the premise has me thoroughly intrigued!
