ASPEN Release Day Launch & Giveaway

The Book

Aspen by Rebekah Crane
Genre: urban fantasy

About Aspen:
One quiet night in Boulder, Colorado, Aspen Yellow-Sunrise Taylor made a mistake.

In the next instant, her life changed forever.

Aspen doesn't want to remember the devastating car accident that killed Katelyn Ryan, a sleek-haired popular soccer player. But forgetting is hard-- because Katelyn may have died -- but she didn't leave. Her ghost is following Aspen around, and heading into senior year, it's kind of a problem. Especially when Katelyn's gorgeous former boyfriend Ben appears to be the only person at school with a clue as to how Aspen feels.

Popularity, college, Homecoming Court, hot guys - none of these things ever mattered to Aspen. She's been busy trying to rein in her giant mass of blonde curls, keep her stoner mother Ninny away from Toaster, her mom's awful bongo drumming boyfriend, and prevent her best friends Kim and Cass from killing - or kissing - one another. But with Ben sitting next to her in Physics looking all too gorgeous, Katelyn's spirit dogging her steps, and her obsessive snow-globe collecting therapist begging her to remember all the things she wants to forget, Aspen is thrust into a vivid, challenging world she can't control … and doesn't want to.

A darkly funny, emotionally gripping story of opening up, letting go, and moving on, ASPEN is about the best-worst accident of your life ... and what comes next.

About Rebekah:
Rebekah Crane fell in love with YA literature while studying Secondary English Education at Ohio University.

  1. I'm excited to read Aspen because it seems like a unique and entertaining book. It also seems very heartfelt, which I always like in a book. Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. Sounds like a really cute and quirky book.
    Realism in Ya is refreshing . It feels like most of Ya now day is fantasy (not that there's nothing wrong w/ that). We all read to escape. I just feel it's nice to have a slice of like every once in a while. Diversity in Ya is also nice. . .I expected love triangles to be played out by now. Divergent broke the mold I guess. My rant is done, lol.

  3. I'm very much a fan of realism and focus on diversity in all genres including children and YA. Children are so precocious these days it only makes sense to be upfront with them in regards to the realities of life. Finding that subtle and sensitive way to accomplish this is a gift and i applaud authors who have it. I also support their work by buying it for my granddaughter :)
    Thanks for sharing.
