Description

Two months after dying, seventeen-year-old witch Graylee Perez wakes up in her twin sister Charlene’s body.

Until Gray finds a way back inside her own body, she’s stuck being Charlene every twenty-hour hours. Her sister has left precise instructions on how Gray should dress and behave. Looking like a prep isn’t half as bad as hanging out with Charlene’s snotty friends and gropey boyfriend.

The “normals” of McKinley High might be quick to write her behavior off as post-traumatic stress, but warlock Raj McKenna is the only person who suspects Gray has returned from the dead.

Now Gray has to solve the mystery of her death and resurrection and disentangle herself from Charlene’s body before she disappears for good.

***Entangled is a young adult paranormal fantasy romance suitable for ages 15 and up.***

My thoughts

I don’t have much to say about this book. I just didn’t care about the story, nor the characters. I didn’t hate it, but I had difficulties finishing it because it wasn’t entertaining enough for me.

I thought the cover was very pretty (even though I realise now that it doesn’t have anything in common with the story) and I found the description quite interesting, so I was very happy when I got the chance to read Entangled. Unfortunately, it disappointed me.

“Two months after dying, seventeen-year-old witch Graylee Perez wakes up in her twin sister Charlene’s body.” This part actually happens after 8 chapters. What happened before? Well, let’s see…

Charlene threatens to commit suicide because her boyfriend (who previously cheated on her) dumped her and he’s now dating another girl. Then she threatens to kill the new girlfriend and then she thinks of a plan to get him back and she ends up killing her own sister (it was an accident, but still…) and put a girl in a coma.

The mother is a passive woman. She knows everything about Charlene’s “plans”, about the suicide attempt but she doesn’t react in any way. She thinks everything is a joke, she sort of encourages her daughter to get back her boyfriend and takes both Charlene and Graylee to shopping. That’s her way of dealling with the problems.

Graylee fantasies about Raj, an Indian warlock who is in love with her, but who pulls her hair and somehow bullies her. How does she react? By trying to choke him with a string and by threatening him. This is how they relationship starts. She and her sister have a good relation until Graylee finds out that Charlene has been blocking her powers for several years. That’s when everything changes. The sister rivalry begins and Graylee ends up being dead.

“Two months after dying, seventeen-year-old witch Graylee Perez wakes up in her twin sister Charlene’s body.” When she wakes up and finds out that she died she has no reaction, like it is not a big deal. Why does she wake up? Because a ressurection spell was done, but the mother didn’t specify wanting the girls in separate bodies. What happens next? Read the description.

All the characters were annoying and not well developed. They were not believable and many of their actions didn’t make much sense. The plot had potential, but the result wasn’t a good one. At least not for me. Maybe you’ll enjoy it more.

Thanks to Netgalley.com and Nikki Jefford for sending me this e-book.
