Summary: (from goodreads) Camden Pike has been grief-stricken since his girlfriend, Viv, died. He’d give anything to have just one more glimpse of her. But when Cam visits the site of Viv’s deadly car accident, he sees an apparition. Her name is Nina, and she’s a girl from a parallel world. When Cam follows here there and makes an unbelievable discovery, it’s as if all his wildest dreams have come true. But things are very different in this other world. Nina is hiding a secret, and the window between the worlds is shrinking every day. As Cam comes to terms with the truth, he’s forced to make a choice that will change his life forever.

Through to You by Emily Hainsworth has a simplistic, yet intriguing cover. Many times when I’m given books to review the first thing that I do is examine the cover and make inferences regarding the story line. With Through to You my predictions were completely off. Camden Pike has just lost his girlfriend Viv. The beginning of the story opens up with a very depressing view of Cam and how he is not coping with the tragic death of his girlfriend. Cam and Viv were the perfect couple. They were completely in separately. So with Viv’s death, comes an inner death for Cam as well. Avoiding those that want to help and console Cam, he quickly begins to fall deeper and deeper in a high school life of complete solitude and loneliness. Things change when Cam sees someone that looks just like Viv. But how can that be?

Another minor character is introduced by the name of Nina. I must admit, her entry into the storyline was extremely confusing for me. However, it seems as if possibly Nina had the answer for Cam to be with Viv forever. Through to You presents a story that has twists and turns infused with romance and Sci-Fi. It was a little hard to follow and extremely slow at many points in the novel. The author does do a great job of bringing closure to the story. However the events that led to the ending did not hold my attention for long. I read quickly hoping to get to the end to find out what happens to Cam, his dead girlfriend and new friend Nina.

Now, I very seldom give 2 tree reviews, so I want to share this book with someone else in an effort to give it a second chance as I am just one voice among a sea of many!
