Review: Touch (Hereafter) by Jennifer Snyder

Goodreads Synopsis
Seventeen-year-old Rowan Harper knows her life is forever changed the moment her schizophrenic mother commits suicide. What Rowan doesn’t realize is how much her mother’s choice altered her own fate. It’s not until after meeting Jet, a sapphire-eyed dead boy, Rowan begins to learn of her new destiny as becoming her mother’s replacement for something she never knew existed.
Touch is a novella of approx. 18,115 words.

I really enjoyed this and was disappointed that it just didn't keep going! I knew it was a novella, but I just wanted more from the characters and especially wanted to know what happens next!
The main character Raven is young though she is certainly not naive considering the hardships that she's already faced in her 17 years. What Jennifer Snyder has successfully created Touch is a character that I want to follow, one that I truly want to see being happy and desperately want to know more about. This always amazes me when a novella can successfully get you to 'bond' with a character in just a few short chapters. Bravo Jennifer!
Now what stopped me from giving this five stars I hear you ask! Whilst I really enjoyed this and will track down other books written by Snyder, the book wasn't overly 'meaty' (yes, I know it's a novella!), and the writing wasn't particularly challenging even for a YA novella. I liked to be pushed a little more!
Overall, Touch is a very enjoyable short read; it's definitely worth an hour of your time.
4 Lovely Stars!
