REVIEW: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.
Ack! I totally forgot about posting this review last Saturday! I am so very sorry! I am so busy this month. T.T But here it is!
Surprisingly, this retelling of Sleeping Beauty is such a good one. I mean, I'm one of those people who like medical terms and think they are sexy. Lmao. Even though most of the time, I just don't get it. 😂
Anyway, I really liked the story of The Girl in Between and it really keep me on the edge of my toes while reading this. Been so busy with RL so it took me weeks since I barely read anything. 😫 I hate RL when it doesn't make me read anything. Lol.
One thing to know... When I started reading it, I researched KLS (can't remember the full name. Lol) cause I really thought it's just made up medical term albeit a really good one. 😅 But all the dreams mixed with memories, I wanted to know more. To see what will Kemp show me next. To know what is her Dad's role. I mean, maybe there is something with the dad's side since he's gone and all that shit. Or maybe it's the grandma? I dunno! I didn't get all the answers I wanted but I am so waiting for the next book in the series! Yay!
I want to know him more too! It's worth reading, for me. And such a good read. Thanks for letting me read the book, Laekan! Definitely enjoyed it!
