Brief Review: 'Afterlife Academy' by Jaimie Admans


Brief Book Review: ‘Afterlife Academy’ by Jaimie Admans ~ 5 Stars!

Afterlife Academy was a fantastic, amazing book! I know it is said to “never judge a book by its cover”, but I’m not ashamed to admit that the beautiful cover of this book only increased my excitement to read it. Add that to Jaimie Admans gripping first paragraph, and I am hooked
.
“I have always been a good girl. I’ve always been a girl who never gets into trouble. In fact, the one and only time that I do something even vaguely wrong, do you know what happens? I die.”

I was prepared to greatly dislike main character Riley from the start, we learn very early on that despite her opening description of herself, she is not what you would call a ‘good girl’. Having been one of the bullied once upon a time, I gritted my teeth at the idea of warming to Riley, a self-confessed bully who revels in the awed attention of others, but I found it impossible not to. 

Jaimie Admans gives us a beautifully heartfelt insight into the mind of someone who needs redemption, and I loved following Riley’s journey to find peace within herself, and with her death and new life in ‘Afterlife Academy’.

Another reason that this book is a must-read is the wonderful creation of Anthony, who was very quickly added to my list of fictional crushes.

5 stars and a definite recommended read.
