Review "Touching The Surface" by Kimberly Sabatini+ Giveaway
 Touching the Surface

Title:Touching the Surface
Author:Kimberly Sabatini
Genre:Young-Adult Fantasy,Romance
When Elliot finds herself dead for the third time, she knows she must have messed up, big-time. She doesn’t remember how she landed in the afterlife again, but she knows this is her last chance to get things right.Elliot just wants to move on, but first she will be forced to face her past and delve into the painful memories she’d rather keep buried. Memories of people she’s hurt, people she’s betrayed…and people she’s killed.As she pieces together the secrets and mistakes of her past, Elliot must find a way to earn the forgiveness of the person she’s hurt most, and reveal the truth about herself to the two boys she loves…even if it means losing them both forever.
"My body smacked the water.Thoughts scattered like a handful of beads dropped on a bare wood floor.I gasped for air and the current rushed in.My throat burned.Panic,thrashing,spots of light exploding in my head.Surrender.I sank softly down...until...fingers wrapped around my wrist,yanking me out of water.As my head broke the surface it all became clear.I had died...again."

About the Author: Kimberly Sabatini is a former special education teacher who is now a full-time mom and a part-time dance instructor.She lives in New York's Hudson Valley with her husband and three sons."Touching the Surface" is her first novel.Find out more at KIMBERLYSABATINI.COM

About "Touching the Surface" and its cover:
"Touching the Surface" was published at "Simon Pulse" (New York) on 30 October 2012 and it has 336 pages.The cover is brilliant,I could say.I think the girl is Elliot,the main character of the book,and around her there are origami cranes,as in the book.It has a beautiful colour,purple and this colour happens to be my favourite one.Elliot loves two boys,Trevor and Oliver,but she has to reveal the truth about herself otherwise she will lose them both.It hink she doesn't want to make a choice and that is what the cover presents.

The story presents a girl,Elliot,who had died again and again for three times.That's why she is a Third Timer.She arrives in Obmil,the place where all the souls go after people die.Everything is fine,but she finds she is a Third Timer from Mel,a girl who will help her to figure it out what decisions she has to take.There,she meets a boy,Trevor,and finds a secret who will change her opinion about him.They have to Delve together to remind what they did in their past lifes.Then,she will find out that she didn't suicide and she won't go to hell,but he did.For her.Why?Because he adored her in the past life...But there was a problem:Elliot is in love,also,with Oliver.Will she be able to make a choice?Will she lose them both forever?Or not?

My opinion:
This book was brilliant.It's about love and afterlife.That made me think that,when a human being dies,the soul might be stocked between Heaven and Hell to be judged,or something like that.My religion says that when somebody dies,he or she  will be judged by God and He will decide if the soul goes to Heaven or Hell.That made me think seriously about what happens next,after we die.Maybe,there is an Obmil,like in this awesome book,maybe not.I liked how the author presented this amorous triangle and how Elliot is in love with two guys,Trevor,who had died for her,and Oliver,the guy she killed by accident.And no,she's not a criminal.That is why you should read the book.It will open you mind about life,generally.

My experience:
This book deserves  5 star rating.It made me think about what happens next,if there is,truly,an Obmil.If you read it,it will change your opinion about life and ,of course,about afterlife.



1."In that moment,I realized I was in love with Trevor.It felt like an instantaneous revelation.In truth there were hundreds of small moments building to it,all in varying degrees of proximity to a tiny little gravestone.This was just the moment when it came together-the tipping point."
2."Being brave isn't about not being scared.Being brave is what you do despite being scare."(Trevor)
3."Just because I fell in love with you in my last life doesn't mean that I want to fall in love with you in the afterlife,Trevor Lowry."
   "I didn't say anything about falling in love.I said I wanted to kiss yo."(Trevor)
