In Firstlife, death is simply another beginning. Before you die, you must decide which realm you’re going to take when the end of your firstlife comes, Troika or Myriad. Tenley “Ten” Lockwood refuses to be forced to decide. If she doesn’t choose the right realm, her parents risk losing everything. In an effort to save their way of life, they send Ten to Prynne Asylum in the hopes that the director there can coerce her, using whatever means necessary to choose the “right” side. This book is jam-packed with action, risk, romance, and adventure. Two battling sides, families split apart, and frienemies you can’t help but both hate and love. I certainly recommend it for any young adult in need of a little book pick-me-up.
