Elana Black has the power to make herself fictional. But when she decides to start saving all the people in books and TV shows who die just for the sake of advancing the plot, she quickly learns that she's not the only one with her powers. All Elana wants to do is save people. But these others don't want the stories to change, and they'll do everything they can to stop her. If you had the power to change fate... to create a happy ending where there wasn't one before... would you do it if it meant risking your own?
4 out of 5 (very good)

This was a very interesting story idea. The leading character has the ability to become fictional and “dives” into stories. It’s kind of a fun idea if you think about it and is the first time I’ve ever come across a story like this.
If you’re an avid reader like myself, and always have a book going, reading a story about being able to become a fictional character, is exciting, fun, enticing, and a true pleasure. That’s definitely how I felt when I agreed to read this story. I was pleased with the overall story, was more than pleased with the idea, and was fairly pleased with the way the author told the story.
The author does a great job with details and descriptions. When the character “turns” fictional, it’s comical at times how she lands into the story. It’s heartwarming how she just wants to save the characters. The scenes were easy to picture and the details were easily understood.
My only complaint was it was a bit slow. At times, the details seemed to drag on a little bit, and it took a little while to grab my attention and pull me in. It didn’t hold my attention the entire time, it seemed to be hit or miss on that aspect. It was a lovely story overall, so that’s why I only knocked it down 1 star.
I suggest to give the book a chance and see if it’s your type of story. I think it’s a book everyone needs to give a chance because it’s such a fun idea!

My name is Danny Bell. I want to tell stories and avoid writing author profiles. I read—when I should be interacting with people, I named my cat after a cat I liked in a book, I’m pretty sure I saw a ghost one time—though I’ll never admit it publicly, I’m too tall for the earth, and I’ve never eaten a vegetable. I lied about the vegetable part. Wait… is someone going to read this?
