Reviews Now You See Her

  • Diabolica
    I had no intention of reading this book when it first entered my threshold. It was for my sister. But I figured, why let her have all the fun. It was about as fun as painting my nails in with a gel pen. So it wasn't painful, just tedious for the most part. I want to preface the rest of this review by saying, this book PROBABLY wasn't for me. Just reading the summary made me groan internally.The book starts of with an average Amelia whose car stop...

    4.5/5 starsI really liked The Liar Society books by sisters Lisa and Laura Roecker. Now You See Her is written by those same sisters under their married names. I have no idea why they are not promoting the fact that they are the same duo. It would have made me race to read this book.Now You See Her is a standalone Young Adult contemporary mystery. The story is about two 17 year old high school seniors Amelia and Sophie. They both play tennis for ...

    I won this book as part of a goodreads giveaway."Now You See Her" is a body-swap thriller involving Amelia, a lower class scrub from a single parent household who's obsessed with tennis and with winning tennis, and Sophie, the squeaky clean carefully presented upper class tennis star. When Sophie hits Amelia, who's trying to get away from a kidnapper one stormy night, they're both injured: Sophie gets a concussion while Amelia winds up in a coma....

    !!POSSIBLE SPOILERS ALERT READ WITH CAUTION SPOILER ALERT!!I did like this book a lot; it was very hard to put down. However...1. It’s “pored” not “poured” (that mistake could have just been because i was reading an ebook)2. SERIOUSLY?! After the talk of feminism not two sentences before and the mentions after, Amelia just assumes the birth control is for having sex??! Grrrrr and then she doesnt even TAKE it?? Come on, what harm could i...
  • Stephanie Weatherly
    Quick read. The book was not exactly what I was expecting it to be. Mix of a realistic fiction/science fiction mystery.
  • Meghan
    I received this book as an advanced reader's copy for our young adult collection at the library. I could not put this book down. The character development between Amelia and Sophie and all of their friends were easy to relate to because they were so close to real-life actions. Just when you thought the story was going one direction with the plot, it takes an unexpected turn and you can't help to find out what happens next. Young Adults these days...

    two girls who both like tennis and one gets into a coma. Also secrets come out and sorta of a freaky friday . I like amelia trying to solve the mystery. I also like sophia and how she changed many times in the book. I adored Janie and Mae, and Landon. There are some twists and turns in this book.

    Amelia Fischer has never been “in.” She’s never made a close group of friends or hosted spontaneous sleepovers. She’s never been “in” because she’s always been “out,” as in, one foot always outside the door. Amelia’s mom has a tough job in nursing homes and has to travel almost every year. Along with her devoted and loving sister, Mae, Amelia’s never gotten close to a place like home. This time, though, she feels that it mig...

    As a whole, I'm not really a big fan of magical realism. Especially since in this particular story, I feel like the author could have done without it. It would have been much better if it was just a confusing mystery.I feel like a lot of points in the story lagged that didn't need to, making it a little too dull for my liking. And ironically, the important and climactic points were very rushed. Which made for a very unsatisfying ending for me. Th...
  • Celia McMahon
    This book was a wild ride and I loved it. Though I picked up on the clues right away, it was still enjoyable to read. The dialogue felt a bit stale at time, but nothing that prevented me from not finishing it. The characters were also something I feel like I've seen hundred times before. Still, nothing too serious there.The ending seemed a little rushed and I hoped for something a bit better. It read very easily and I finished quite quickly since...

    I liked this book but I didn't love it. I found the first 100 pages or so a chore to get through actually, but sometime after that it got a lot better. My biggest problem with this book is that I was completely unsurprised by everything that happened. I thought it was painfully obvious what was going on and who tried to kidnap Amelia, and I wasn't shocked at all by a single revelation. To me, that takes all the fun out of books like this if I'm n...

    Eh. This book had such an interesting premise, but in reality it was so. Painfully. Boring. The events felt incredibly repetitive and pointless, characters were bland and difficult to care for or about, and basically the only thing that kept me reading this was I wanted to get it over with. The idea behind this was great, but poor, poor execution.
  • Nina
    I read this in a few hours! I must say, I was definitely drawn in by the situation, and kept in by wondering how it was all going to play out. I will say the ending was a little rushed and...I still have questions, but basically the whole thing works out great as a story.
  • Diane
    I really enjoyed this.
  • Louisa
    This book was such a fantastic read! I loved the whole, coma body switch thing, and how Amelia had to live in Sophie's body! Great mystery, and I really enjoyed this book!
  • Natasha
    It started out very promising and I was surprised that the body swap happened so quickly. At first, the two girls seemed so different but little clues are dropped along the way hinting at that supposed connection. I was a bit disappointed about the conclusion which appeared a bit too anti-climatic and was resolved way too easily. Could have been better.
  • Debbie
    A page-turning thriller with a hint of the supernatural. Really well written and fun to read.
  • Caterina Di Maddalena (Fantastical Reads)
    Thank you Edelweiss and Harper Collins for allowing me to read an ARC in return for an honest review. This was a nice little read. The mystery was very predictable, and the all the characters were pretty boring, and the ones that weren't boring were unlikable, but the plot itself is interesting and I'd recommend reading it for that alone.
  • Dreaday
    This book was so much fun! I’ve been getting kind of burned out on reading lately, but I got super sucked in to this one. I started it, kept thinking about it, and then couldn’t stop thinking about it! It was just a fun read- suspenseful and interesting, it kept me guessing until the end, which surprised me with a little extra twist at the end. I can’t wait to sell this, and if this pair writes anything else, I will be PUMPED to read it, to...
