Stacking the Shelves


I got two books this week. Both were review books from the same author and they sounded really interesting!!

Both Sides
Paul E. Stawski

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes and Noble |

Imagine if you were in a tragic accident – unable to move or speak but otherwise cognizant of everything around you. Imagine hearing doctors deciding your fate without you having a voice in the outcome.

Alex is a 16-year-old girl who finds herself in that exact situation in Both Sides, a novel that begins when – while on a class field trip – Alex and another girl, Sandra, end up in a horrible accident.

If the doctors act quickly, they may be able to save one body…and one brain. Amid the confusion and uncertainty, we hear everything that’s going on in Alex’s mind – from her initial disbelief to her wry sarcasm about the absurdity of it all to her realization that life, as she knew it before, will never be the same. If she survives.

The novel poses a myriad of questions: Just what makes up a person? Is it the body, or the mind, or something else entirely? Will Sandra’s body reject Alex who so often rejected her?

Both Sides tackles these issues and more. Within its pages every reader will find her own answers and discover, in the end, a story of courage and a girl who never before existed.

Taking Sides
Paul E. Stawski

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes and Noble |


Taking Sides begins where Both Sides ended: with 16-year-old brain transplant recipient Alex Featherstone leaving the hospital and coming home. But where, exactly is home now that she’s living in another girl’s body? Taking Sides gives us a glimpse of what it’s like to deal with the press and paparazzi, school, family and friends as we follow Alex on the rollercoaster ride that has become her life.
