Death is no match for love…
Nobody knows what happens after death, except Amber Deliah Matthews.
Just before her seventeenth birthday, Amber loses her battle with cancer and is reborn into a less than perfect life. She remembers everything that led up to this moment and now finds herself left with only an unloving family and Oliver, a friend, and the only person who ever believed her story.
Amber has never wanted anything more than to be whisked back to the life she once loved. So, when Amber and Oliver are given the chance to venture back to Amber’s first family, they embark on the journey of a lifetime.
Equal parts moving and achingly poignant, She Remembers is a captivating story about love, loss, and the threads that bind us all together.
Ariana Glaser is quite the young author! She remembers is a great read for teens and their parents. Ariana’s character of Amber really gives the reader a first hand perspective of what it is like inside a head of a teen (with an older soul) and how they deal with tragedy, friendship, confusion, love, and the emotions that are felt so strongly at that age. The main character passes away from cancer and it reincarnated into another person, BUT she still has memories from her prior life. The topic of deathly, life and terminal illness is a reality for many young people. Ariana’s unique perspective as a young adult writer brings her protagonist’s inner thoughts to life. My 12 year old daughter grabbed it and inhaled the story. As a parent reading this, it reminded me of how passionate young adults are and how important interpersonal relationships are; even the relationship with one’s self. I would highly recommend this book. I am only halfway through and I don’t want to out it down; but I also want to take my time to get to know the character and discover her “new” world with her. Hats off to this young author. I look forward to seeing her work in the future!

She Remembers combines an intriguing story with a thought-provoking look at how one can make the best of the life one is living, even if it is not the life one wants. The author weaves an original and imaginative tale that immediately grabs the reader’s interest. The story line is well thought out and propels the reader forward throughout the book. While illness and death are subjects of the book, there is an overriding theme of life affirmation as well. The main characters are relatable and likable, and the reader can’t help but hope that their goals are reached! The occult happenings are paired with a romance, and the extra twist at the end brings the book to a very satisfying conclusion.

She Remembers is a new novel by Ariana Glaser that will appeal to readers of young adult fiction. It is a unique story with an interesting twist– a girl who dies of cancer at the age of 16 is reincarnated, but remembers every detail of her previous life. Amber’s desire to return to that former life is what drives her to take a bold step with only her best friend Oliver by her side.
With characters that make you think and a creative storyline, She Remembers demonstrates that Glaser is a promising young author. It will be interesting to follow her writing as she develops her craft.
While I am an avid reader of non-fiction novels, this wonderful and original story caught my eye. The author- a writing prodigy- spun a detailed and colorful story which prompted real-time visions of what “could be.” Whether one is spiritual, a humanist, or merely an individual who wonders about concepts such as an afterlife or reincarnation, wow…this is the story for you. Better yet, books that make one think and wonder will stick long after they are read as the concepts in this story will be tenets I will mull for some time to come. I highly recommend “She Remembers.”
This amazing young author writes a beautiful story with so many twists and turns (you will want to keep reading to find out what comes next) about life, death, family, friendships, feelings and reincarnation. Whatever your feelings about reincarnation may be, it makes you contemplate your life here on Earth, your relationships, your friendships and the importance of family (to name a few). It is a must-read that will touch your soul and help you to see the world in a different way that is uplifting and positive.
I read Glaser’s first book last year and was amazed by her writing skill. When I heard about her second novel, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a copy. Her first novel, “The World I Never Knew”, was amazing (and Glaser was only twelve when she published it!) but “She Remembers” (only fourteen when she published) was even better. Glaser describes her characters in a way that makes you want to root for them. The plot was well thought out and developed. I highly recommend “She Remembers” as well as “The World I Never Knew”.
She Remembers is a fascinating story, one I would highly recommend to anyone. The story will leave readers with much to think about and it was beautifully written by a 14-year old author with a special talent who is wise beyond her years. From the moment I started reading I was compelled to keep going while on the edge of my seat. Don’t miss this great read!
An emotional and interesting treatment of reincarnation and a person’s inner life.
This novel is wonderful if you’re looking for a quick and interesting story! The fourteen-year-old author is wise beyond her years, and she uses the concept of reincarnation to explore death in a way that makes it seem almost beautiful. Taking you through various twists and turns, She Remembers will keep you on the edge of your seat.
This was a great book! The book was written by a 14 year old…AMAZING! The book tells the story of a teenager who has been reincarnated, but she remembers her previous life. The author provides interesting twists and turns that makes the reader not want to put the book down. All in all, definitely a MUST READ!
