Betwixt By: Melissa Pearl *Six Words & Giveaway*

Book Description

Beautiful, wild-child Nicole Tepper is hit by a car and left for dead. But when she wakes the next morning, Nicole finds herself in bed without a scratch. Perhaps she was more intoxicated than usual, as her mother is giving her the silent treatment and her friends are ignoring her as well.

Things take a turn for the weird when Nicole soon discovers she is actually hovering between life and death. Her body is lying in the forest while her spirit is searching for anyone who can hear her. Unfortunately the only person who can is Dale Finnigan, the guy she publicly humiliated with a sharp-tongued insult that has left him branded.

Desperate, Nicole has no choice but to haunt Dale and convince the freaked-out senior to help her. Will he find her body before it's too late? Or will the guy who tried to kill her with his car, beat him there and finish her off before anyone finds out?

Six Words
(BETWIXT Broken down into SIX words. Also, explain why you choose those words.)

Betwixt - I chose this title because it fit the story so well. Nicole is caught between life and death, she's caught between a good life and a bad one and she's caught between a decision. She's trapped and she needs someone to come and find her and rescue her.

Lost - Not only is Nicole lost in the forest throughout this book, but she is also lost in her life.

High School - You know that expression "That's SO high school!" Well this story is like that a little for me. I remember the different groups and cliques in high school and this story touches on some of that... it really is SO high school.

Love - This is a really important aspect of the book. Love comes in many different forms and Nicole has been experiencing the false kind for a few years and finally she glimpses the real, unconditional kind and she can't help but be drawn to it.

Forgiveness - There are many wrongs done in the story and they need to be righted in order for Nicole to move forward in her life. It is a huge struggle for her and it was really fascinating watching her deal with it.

Humour - Because this is quite an intense story, dealing with some deep issues, I wanted to make sure it had its light moments too. The banter between Dale and Nicole is quite humorous - well it is to me anyway :) I really enjoyed writing all their scenes together.
