I wish you could all see my notes on this book—it’s just me constantly writing any given variation of “this is such a mess/this is so messed up” over and over again, and it really is such a big mess. I truly still don’t know what my honest feelings about In Another Life are? I equitably liked and dislik ...more

This was my first time reading a book by C.C. Hunter and I am definitely intrigued and would love to read more! I am always drawn to mysteries, but sometimes YA mysteries can be a hit or miss for me. However, I really did enjoy this book so much, and although I had a few issues with some of the characters, I really think fans of young romance mixed with a hard-hitting mystery would enjoy this book.
This book follows two POVs: Chloe ...more
I can't do it. This is awful. The writing needs serious work, the plot is unrealistic and overly melodramatic, but most of it, these characters ARE TERRIBLE. In the first 5% of the book, there were four mentions of the main character's breasts, and neither she nor the love interest seem to be capable of going more than a page without referring to how "hot" everyone thinks Chloe is. She's tall and skinny-but-curvy(!) and beautiful with her "great B cup breasts", WE GET IT. Oh my god, I don't r ...more
In Another Life pulled me into Chloe and Cash's lives from the first sentence. I devoured their story in one night and didn't even mind being exhausted the next day after staying up WAY past my bed time. Cash and Chloe are so sweet and GOOD, I couldn't help but love them. They both have such big hearts when it comes to fighting for those they care about. I really enjoyed the added touch of mystery and suspense in their story. It weaved seamlessly into their romance in a way that seemed realistic ...more
In Another Life is written specifically for younger readers, I’m not the target audience. However, that did not quell my enjoyment of the book by any means, it only suggests that I had to read it from a different viewpoint. Chloe’s life going into her final year of high school (senior year for those outside of the US) is already depressing. Her loving. adoptive parents have gone through a horrible, ugly divorce due to her father’s cheating. Her mother is depressed and barely coping leaving Chloe ...more
When Chloe Holden moves to Joyful, Texas, with her mother, her once perfect life is in shambles. Her mother is in remission from cancer but still very sick. Her Dad, who she has always considered her super hero, has cheated on her mom and left her for a much younger woman. They're not speaking at all and using Chloe as a go-between.
In spite of all of this, Chloe is doing her best to hold it all together. Her mom is in the throes of a terrible depression and most days, Chloe function ...more
C.C. Hunter plucked the heartstrings out of my chest and played them like a finely tuned violin in this YA novel! As if Chloe doesn't have enough hardship in her life: her mother has cancer, her dad has left for a younger woman, and she's starting senior year in high school as a new student in a new town. Add to this the fact that her new boyfriend, Cash (a purported "bad boy" with a father like Dirty John) suspects she may be the long-ago-kidnapped daughter of his foster family. And this is jus ...more
