Slipping

Rated 4.60/5 based on 5 reviews
I think I'm losing my mind. The alternative would be I'm seeing ghosts. If I'm going crazy, I should check myself into a nuthouse as soon as possible. But if I'm not... if she's really a ghost, listening to her could mean the difference between life and death.

Given To Me For An Honest Review

This book is a great short story but would make a fantastic novel. It is about a boy who has lost his mother and sister to a car accident. He begins to see his sister's ghost who keeps telling him to go and save Liam. He can't figure out whay she means. The story is so good. The ending is even better. You will not go wrong in reading this short story and who knows maybe one day Shandy Kurth may extend it into a longer book. I gave it 5 stars but wish it could be more. I highly recommend it to everyone.

Although I am not a big fan of young adult books, I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Slipping is a well-written, properly edited, quick and enjoyable read. Shandy Kurth makes you feel every motion that the characters are going through... frustration, jealously, angst, regret, healing and finally the chance to move on.

Slipping by Shandy Kurth
Miles had lost his mother and sister in a car crash. He had just got dumped from Jordan his girlfriend. He couldn't wait to graduate and
leave this town for good. He lived with his father and had some friends but he had a recurring dream. His sister was almost real, led him to
a place behind town and told him to remember one time there. She mentioned a murder and he was trying hard to piece it all together.
Rayla keeps appearing during the time he's awake and while he's trying to figure it all out she's asking him to find Liam. He has no clue why though.
Things just don't add up and he's got an essay to pass in that he's not completed.
Interesting thing about this book is the main character is a guy, not a typical teen female so hearing from that point of view is interesting, as to what happens during events that set him off, etc.
Never suspected what really happened but like the way Miles handled it. Really like where this book takes you and how the title comes about.

I loved this story. I read it while Shandy was posting it in installments on Wattpad, and I kept bugging her about when the next part would be available! For being a short story, you really get pulled in by the characters (but Shandy's awesome at doing that!). The ending is really good; I definitely didn't see it coming, but I thought it was a great way to go. I hope she writes more short stories, as they're just as good as her novels, and she can get them out to us faster! ;)

I really enjoyed what the author did with this story. It was short, simple, yet kept me questioning the main character's sanity the entire time.

Kurth's main character, Miles, is being followed around by the ghost of his dead younger sister. But he goes through the story debating whether or not she is real or a symptom of the combination of dealing with the stress of a recent breakup and the dead of his mother and sister a year earlier.
I spent most of the time reading trying to figure out the reality of the story along with Miles, but that's not all. There is someone's life at stake. Should Miles listen to the pleading of his sister's joke, get himself some professional help, or blow it all off in hopes that it'll go away? Well I can't tell you what he should do. You need to read the story. But I also can't tell you because, I'm still going over it all in my mind.

I really enjoyed the twist in this story as well. I definitely wasn't expecting the story to go in the direction it did. I'm always a fan of surprises though.
