Transcend Time Saga #1 Remembrance

A reincarnation story based on Taylor Swift's music video of 'Love Story'.....worth a try. Presenting Transcend Time Saga #1 Remembrance by Michelle Madow.

Here is the summary of the book:

Lizzie Davenport has been reincarnated from Regency Era, England ... but she doesn't know it yet. Then Drew Carmichael transfers into Lizzie's high school at the beginning of the year, and she feels a connection to him, almost like she knows him. She can't stop thinking about him, but whenever she tries talking with him about the mysteries behind her feelings, he makes it clear that he wants nothing to do with her. Reaching him is even more difficult because she has a boyfriend, Jeremy, who has started to become full of himself after being elected co-captain of the varsity soccer team, and her flirtatious best friend Chelsea starts dating Drew soon after his arrival. So why can't she get him out of her mind? Even though Lizzie knows she should let go of her fascination with Drew, fighting fate isn't going to be easy.

 I'm not really a big fan of reincarnation stories and as far as what I had heard that this was inspired from Taylor Swift's Love Story video but this turns out to be so much more....lets see how... 

This is the story of Lizzie Davenport who is starting her new school with the same expectations that any teenager has. But things start to deteriorate with the arrival of the new student Drew Carmichael. Lizzie already has a long time boyfriend, Jeremy who I would aptly say is a typical high school jock who cares more about their status quo and football....not an ideal boyfriend. But Drew, who seems to be less than friendly at first, comes in with a gust of wind and sweeps her away....with him around Lizzie seems to be having these strange visions of her and Drew in Regency era English garb. But trouble is not far....when Lizzie's best friend Chelsea sets her eyes on is upto Lizzie now to make the right choices without hurting anybody.

Like everything this too has its own pros and cons....this also does. The concept of the story is definitely a plus, then the co-relation of all the events of the past and present incarnations of Lizzie and Drew is most believable. Another plus was the instant all encompassing attraction between them both. But the one thing that was a major turn-off was the whiny tone of the story. Everyone is whinning about each other behind their backs. And the major thing.....while Ms. Madow put up a great prose in here it somehow didn't really captivate me as much as I was hoping it to.
