Cassidy Jordan knows she’ll die a few weeks after her eighteenth birthday, and she can’t wait. This is her second time here, and she knows what’s waiting for her in The Life-After — the place most mistakenly call “the afterlife.” Getting back there is supposed to be easy: she just has to find nineteen-year-old Riley Davis and help him get his life on track. By the time she finds him, though, she has only seven weeks to help him. Riley will die too young if she fails, and she’ll never see The Life-After or this life again.
But no one told her helping Riley would mean dating him; she hasn’t dated anyone since the love of her first life caused her death the last time she turned eighteen. When Cassidy realizes she’s falling for Riley, she’s faced with a choice: give him the life he’s meant for and leave when it’s time, or give up eternity for the true love she’s never had, knowing Riley will die the same way she did in her first life and that her entire existence could end at any time.
Seven Weeks To Forever was not what I expected. I don’t know why I thought that it wasn’t going to be that great when I started. I enjoyed it more than I thought I was going to. This story is about life and the second chances that are rarely given to us.
I instantly fell in love with Riley’s and Cassidy’s witty banter and serious conversations. Everything was beautiful and easy to understand—it was a light read that I enjoyed a lot. I am a Christian (Seventh-Day Adventist to be exact) so I don’t believe in The Life-After. I do believe that God will come for us one day and every eye on this planet will see Him but I don’t believe that once we die, our spirit lingers in The Life-After. With this thought in mind, I still enjoyed the book because it wasn’t something that was forced upon the reader to believe in.
I was so frustrated with Cassidy’s aunt that I was about to dive into the book and hit her but then she did a 180º and explained her reasons and I guess they are understandable so I forgave her. I wish Cassidy and her aunt had gotten more time together with this new-found relationship but I didn’t get it and I was very sad about it.
I guess I was expecting the ending because I wasn’t really surprised but it made me cry happy tears a little and I felt so happy, I wanted to jump up and down.
