Review ~*~ Dying to Forget by Trish Marie Dawson

Piper Willow dies the summer after her high school graduation but she doesn’t make it to Heaven or Hell…instead she finds herself in a spiritual terminal called the Station. She’s given only two choices: Return to Earth as the subconscious for a person in need of some outside assistance, or move on and spend an eternity lost in her own sorrow and pain. 
Does Piper have what it takes to save a life - to be the nagging voice inside someone else’s head - or will she fail and end up lost and tormented in limbo...forever? 
Available: Paperback or ebook

Review Rating: 5 Stars

I wasn't sure what to expect when I started this book.  Let's just say that I was blown away.   Dying to Forget is an unforgettable story. It is the first book in The Station Series and I can't wait to get my hands on the second book in the series, Dying to Remember.

 Piper is a typical teenager that faces some difficult situations and ultimately ends up at the Station.  The Station is a type of holding place where the people there volunteer to help others going through difficult situations so they don't end up there as well.  Trish Marie Dawson paints vivid pictures for her readers of the Station, the characters, and the amazing situations they face.

Dying to Forget deals with topics that are unpleasant for many people, suicide being the biggest one. This story hits on a lot of issues that everyone faces from teenagers to baby boomers. Once I started it, there was no way I could put it down. I was really glad my Kindle had a nice charge on it because I read it all in one sitting.  The emotions, turmoil, and fantastic writing style had me engaged from chapter one.

I do have to express my frustration with Ms. Dawson though.  Dying to Forget has a twist I didn't see coming in the end and will leave you hanging, but you can rush right out to pick up Dying to Remember since it is already released!

Even if you are not a fan of the young adult genre, Dying to Forget is a story that will fit anyone and leave you with questions and rethinking the little voices in your head.
