Blog Tour - On the Bright Side

It's the day of the funeral and 14 year old Gabby is watching everyone show up for...her own funeral. It seems everyone in her school has shown up, her best friend and crush Michael Smith and even her frenemy Angela. Doesn't Angela know it's not polite to show up to the funeral of the person you had a hand in killing? Gabby was just a normal girl before she died, she and Michael hung out all the time, she was getting ready to ask him to the Sadie Hawkins dance. At her final fencing match with Angela, Gabby had told her that she was thinking about asking Michael, little did she know that Angela would immediately go ask him herself. Gabby finds out later when she asks Michael to go with her that he's already planning on going with Angela, just before Angela starts texting her telling her not to ask Michael. While crossing a road Gabby gets one final text from Angela, unfortunately she doesn't realize that there's a car coming right then and she gets hit and dies. Gabby soon finds out that in heaven what we've known as angels are actually called Brights, and those Brights have a person on earth that they are supposed to be responsible for watching out for. Ironically Gabby is supposed to watch out for Angela. But how can she watch out for the girl that Gabby feels killed her? And how is she supposed to watch her with Michael without the jealousy that accompanies seeing them together? This was a cute story. I liked the different view of heaven S R Johannes showed in this book. I really liked the characters, Gabby seemed as though she could be a real girl and the situations with Angela were funny and seemed real enough too! This was a fun story. 

S. R. Johannes is the author of Untraceable (a teen wilderness thriller) and On the Bright Side (a tween paranormal). She lives in Atlanta, Georgia with her dog, British-accented husband, and the huge imaginations of their little prince and princess, which she hopes someday- will change the world. After earning an MBA and working in corporate America, S. R. Johannes traded in her expensive suits, high heels, and corporate lingo for a family, flip-flops, and her love of writing.
