#BookReview: OtherLife by Lynette DeVries

Synopsis: When 16-year-old Lucy McGowen goes under sedation for a routine dental procedure, she hopes to come out of it free of pain. Instead, she wakes up in an alternate version of her life―a reality in which her secret hobby is out in the open, her own parents feel like strangers, and her boyfriend doesn’t even know her name. Navigating her new world is hard enough, but then Lucy begins getting cryptic messages from a mysterious sender with unfinished business. She has also acquired a new habit―sleepwalking―and with each episode, she finds herself in increasingly bizarre situations. She doesn’t know if luck has landed her in this revamped version of reality―or if she was somehow chosen―but one thing is clear: she must uncover the truth about how it’s all connected before she loses herself completely. Will Lucy find a way back to her other life . . . or will she create a new world that she can truly call her own?


Rating: 5 Stars
My Review:  This book was great. I think it would work well for lower young adult.  I loved the alternate reality story in this one and the characters.  This was a great story that I enjoyed reading. 

Lynette DeVries spent countless childhood hours at her manual typewriter creating choose-your-own-adventure stories and mysteries inspired by the Nancy Drew series. 

After college, she began writing scripts for various shows on Americana Television Network, and later she wrote episodes of the nationally syndicated Could It Be a Miracle, hosted by Robert Culp. She also wrote for print news and magazines, radio and advertising, but her first love is fiction. Her published novels include Synchronicity and Salvation, books one and two of the young adult series, the Geminae Duology. Her most recent YA novel, OtherLife, was released in spring 2021. Her newest novel, The Scars That Remain, will be released in Fall 2021.

Lynette lives with her husband, two creative daughters and two sloppy dogs in Florida.
