Today's review is on THERE by Denise Grover Swank
Full of the exceptional characters and writing style that we have all come to love, Swank delivers the much anticipated sequel to HERE on the Otherside. And like every other book that she has out, THERE promises to be a huge success.
Julia, Evan, and Reece are on the run from the
Region. They know that Julia is not from their universe and they want her dead. But during their escape, Evan hurts his leg and infection sets in. Now, on top of everything, they need to find some antibiotics to save his life.
While looking for blankets to keep warm, Julia and Reece find Jo. A scavenger who has been captured by a group of men to be used however they want. She's tough, closed-off, and alone so naturally Julia befriends her. But is Jo the friend she claims to be? Or is she in it just for herself?
Twists and turns and plenty of YA sexual tension play out in THERE. Everything that Swank is a pro at writing about. My only question ? When can I expect a third book in the series? I need a little love for my man Reece.
I don't think that there is a book that Swank cannot write fantastically. She is truly on her way to becoming the Poe of today's YA writers!

Julia Phillips’ world is an alternate universe away. Trapped in a land
where government leaders want her dead, Julia is forced to run for her
life with Evan and Reece, the two boys who brought her here. They’re on

Evan is battling a deadly infection, and Julia finds herself racing

her captured in a bandits’ hideout. As the four travel across the
country, Julia has something else to worry about—her memories are slowly
being replaced by the Julia of Evan and Reece’s world. Will they find a
way to send Julia home before it’s too late? Or will Julia’s body and
mind be trapped THERE?
