Greetings from the Flipside - Rene Gutteridge and Cheryl McKay
Hope Landon has always loved creating greeting cards and making people laugh. As far back as elementary school, when she rewrote a fellow student's "do you like me?" card, she has been affecting the people around her with her cards. Now, she's about to get married and leave this small town of Poughkeepsie and find a way to live her dreams. Instead, she's left at the altar and attacked in the parking lot, resulting in a coma, where she suddenly finds herself in the Big Apple anyway, but things don't seem quite right.
It took me a little while to get into the flow of this book. The dual perspective of real life and Hope's fantasy life in the coma was just a little too weird for me at first. Over time, I warmed up to it, and to the characters in the story. It was fun to start to see the things from real life that were creeping into her dream life. It was an interesting idea for a story, but it didn't leave any real impact on me.
I give the book 3 stars for originality and characters that kept me interested.
I received a copy of this book from the publishers, via NetGalley, in exchange for my honest review.
