    Cara, second most popular girl at school, super athlete, hottie Alex's girlfriend, dies--for 42 seconds--during a routine operation. In the time that she's dead, her entire world changes, as she comes face to face with an afterlife of sorts and realizes that she needs to make some changes in her life, once she returns to the living. What she doesn't know is why David's face pops into her head--or how she's going to get him to spend even a few minutes talking to her, given what she and her friend [...]


  • Juli

    Amazing book. It's a plausible story about very hard to imagine things, and makes you question your purpose in life, how the things in your life connect, and what happens before and after life. Surprisingly complex with intense character development, especially for a YA novel.


  • Renae

    I really enjoyed this book, and I found myself continuing to read it although I wasn't drawn-in by some of the ideas it contained. It's well written and very easy read in a couple sittings.Robin Brande does a fantastic job making you dislike, and at the same time like the main character, Cara. There are points where the voice of the narrator is off-putting, but Cara's voice is consistent and maintains a nice flow. You start to see Cara's character change in small increments as the book goes alon [...]


  • Carly

    Another great novel by Robin Brande. Although Cara is, at times, difficult to like, she is entirely believable as a typically self-absorbed teenager discovering what kind of person she wants to be. In fact, there are no "perfect people" in this novel, which is one of the things I loved most about it - each character is layered, multi-dimensional, and unidealized. "Replay" embodies everything I've come to expect from Brande's novels (true-to-life characters, spot-on dialogue, and thought-provokin [...]

    Oh, this is another winner for Robin Brande.Cara is a 16 year old athlete and one of the most popular girls in school. Her near death experience makes her start to question her actions, her friends and her past. This story is engaging and so well written that at times I didn't even like Caraor more that I didn't like her behavior, I guess.This book is great for teens, to help them understand how their actions affect others, to see that things are not always as they seem and to let them know it's [...]


  • Kerri

    I think I've found my new favorite author. I know this because I do not believe in reincarnation or souls traveling from one body to another blah blah blah. But I really liked this book. Brande has a way of making me get completely involved in the lives of her characters. They are very real and worthy of respect. I loved the way she brought in a complete skeptic to the world of reincarnation in the character of David. It gave my thoughts about the whole thing a voice in the story. She might just [...]


  • Hallie

    I really wanted to like this so much more than I ended up doing, in part because a YA novel with a teen who's had a near-death experience could be awesome. (No doubt influenced at least in part by how much I loved PASSAGE, flaws and all) But this just wasn't for me, mostly because I just didn't get on at all with the reincarnation stuff. Also Cara was *meant* to be unlikeable, but her lack of sensitivity - and her flat-out dishonesty - went on far too long. As a side note, I was quite amused by [...]

    I received the book for free through First Reads.Cara is a 16 year old popular athlete who dies during knee surgery for 42 seconds. When she awakens, she knows that she has to make changes in her life. But what needs to be changed? Throughout the book, I really didn't like Cara. She was so self-absorbed that I got frustrated with her. Overall, it is a good book though. This is one I will request our library to purchase for our YA collection.


  • Wendy Hines

    I thought the take on reincarnation was very unique but I didn't connect with Cara at all. In fact, I really didn't like any of the characters. Maybe I'm too old, but I found most of them shallow. I did enjoy the premise though and would try another book by this author.

    Without giving away too many spoilers, in Replay we follow the story of Cara Campbell, whose life irrevocably changes after she recovers from a near-death experience during surgery. Review on Finding Wonderland: writingya/2012/07


  • Madison Salem

    A different writing style than the other books of her I've read.


  • Crystal

    I love Robin Brande, and her books are always GREAT. This book is as awesome as her others.


  • Tanita S.

    This is the most unusual book I think I've read this year. Brilliantly thought out.
