    1. Aspen is one of those books that take you by surprise because of how compulsively good they are. I was not prepared for the richness and depth of this novel.After a car accident that killed the most popular girl in her school, and left her physically, emotionally, and mentally scarred, Aspen Yellow-Sunrise Taylor - fabulous name, by the way - is the subject of many wide-eyed stares and bathroom gossip. She doesn't want to be pitied by the the people around her so in turn she shuts them off. Sh [...]


    2. There needs to be more books like this for YA. Straight up. While I have a major girl crush on Crane- I'm overly picky about my YA it's not my go-to genre- but, THIS book is a confident, funny, endearing story- and a stellar sophomore novel by Crane.The characters are solid, real and I fell in love with them. The main character, Aspen, is a refreshing, quirky girl suffering from PTSD in her final year of high school oddly enough, I related to one of the other characters (Suzy) more, which made m [...]


    3. ARC kindly provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Anyone who reads my reviews knows that I am a super critical reader/reviewer. I usually call out any annoyance I encounter in my reviews regardless of how minuscule it is. It goes without saying that I don't give out many 5 star ratings. As a general rule, any books that I give 5 star ratings to must meet 2 of the 3 following criteria:1. Go on my favorites shelf. check2. Make me feel the need to purchase a physic [...]


    4. For a full and edited review go toBlame it on the books 4 Stars “Maybe life isn’t about seeing ourselves. Maybe its about letting other people see us.” Aspen is as emotionally lifting as it is destroying, its full of beautiful quotes and moments. Some were sad, but most made me laugh and smile. It wasn’t any bit of a surprise for me when I went on and I saw all the 5 star reviews. Aspen was involved in a car accident with Katelyn Ryan, a popular girl at her school. Aspen got out of the [...]


    5. I MADE A PLAYLIST FOR THIS BOOK! AND YOU CAN LISTEN WHILE READING MY REVIEW HERE.Aspen surprised me I know it's my fault because I don't read blurbs, but what I really expected from this book is nothing but rainbows and unicorns and sunshine. In short, I thought it was a fluffy read. Don't get me wrong, the book wasn't depressing or very sad. Nothing like that. Though, I did get teary eyed at some point. Let’s just say that ASPEN is a lightly dark read. I know, that's so weird. How can a book [...]


    6. ASPEN is the kind of book you wish would never end. The characters are finely drawn, the world is carefully created, and the relationships are meaningful and realistic. Aspen herself is such a relatable, likable character that I find myself wondering what's going on in her life now! I wish there had been more characters like Aspen when I was reading as a teen. She's flawed, and often conflicted, but she' a great friend, a devoted daughter and all around just a good person. As readers we get to s [...]


    7. I need to time to process feels. But wow, this showed the essence of YA Contemporaries- honest-to-god characters that are trying to get through life and just dealing with the aftermath of things. LOVE IT. Full review to come.


    8. That's the funny thing about endings. They're usually the start of something new."Aspen is exactly what I'm expecting it to be. It's a light and funny read but at the same time an eye-opener. How do you really start over again after something that is so awful and traumatic? "I can't make the past go away even though it's already done" "Maybe it's not about making it go away. Maybe it's about moving on."The story is about Aspen Yellow-Sunrise Taylor, a girl who got on a car accident that ended a [...]


    9. Note: I received an Advanced Reading Copy of ASPEN in return for an honest review.Aspen Yellow-Sunrise Taylor lives with her weed-loving mother in Boulder, Colorado. A few weeks before the start of senior year she's in a terrible car crash. Katelyn Ryan, the teen driving the other car, is killed. It's a horrible, bloody experience and it marks Aspen in ways that have nothing to do with her broken leg or the nasty scar across her forehead. What's worse, Katelyn's ghost is haunting Aspen. Not in t [...]


    10. Apen was a great read! I have the pleasure of interning with Rebekah and I've learned so much from her! I have seen Aspen from the very beginning before edits, during edits and the final product! I LOVE THIS STORY.Aspen is a gutsy girl with frizzy blonde hair who just happens to see a classmate walking around, the kicker is she's dead. Aspen was in a car accident that included her classmate Katelyn, the ghost haunting her. Katelyn's boyfriend Ben and Aspen seem to be brought together by fate, be [...]

    12. This was just absolutely fabulous! I just could not stop reading. Aspen is a high school girl, not the popular click girl, just a girl. An accident changes all that. After the accident she becomes the person everyone want to know, wants to be friends with. She just wants to be "Aspen" again. Her mother is not what most people would consider a traditional mom. She is pretty cool though, in a "my mom is a friend" kind of way. Kim and Cass are her best friends and they are hilareous. Aspen is a sma [...]


    13. There is SO much I love about this book, from the characters to the setting to the hilariously pithy dialogue that actually sounds like teenagers (and not just parodies of them). It is such a beautiful character study of a girl trying to find her way in the world while making peace with an unfortunate incident in her past. The character of Aspen is organically quirky, authentically cool and written with so much spice and tenderness you can't help but fall in love with her (and wish you could go [...]


    14. Such a great, unique story. Fantastic characterization, and Rebekah Crane captured the Boulder lifestyle perfectly.


    15. 5 Stars! A Big Thank You to Ms Jessica Park for recommending this beautifully written story of love; loss; friendship and finding meaning in life. So happy with this unintentional find


    16. Also posted on my blog: living-a-thousand-lives.tumblr/post/90840303176/aspen-by-rebekah-craneI received an Advanced Reader Copy from NetgalleyThe CoverI love the cover, it made me want to read the book instantly. The font is very catchy (can fonts be catchy?), the background colour is beautiful and the girl in the picture or at least her head look really like how Aspen is described in the book (though I'd imagined her hair a bit more "dirty blonde"-ish).The StoryA terrible car accident changed [...]


    17. This review is also available on my blog: bonfirebooks.wordpress/201This is a stand alone novel by the brilliantly talented Miss Rebekah Crane, who has a way with words. This novel was light and funny but also had some darker undertones and taught me a very serious and important message that truly touched my heart. It is not often that books can does this effectively, but this contemporary-romance does this to the point where it brought tears to my eyes. I didn’t even cry at the Fault in Our S [...]


    18. Katelyn died in the car accident that Aspen believes was her doing. And now Katelyn won’t leave her alone. And then there’s the small issue of Aspen having a crush on Ben—Katelyn’s grieving boyfriend.Aspen is, in my opinion, the perfect representation of what gems in the YA category look—and read—like. It deals with social issues, while also maintaining an aura of dark satire around it.As a girl, Aspen has many petty issues that girls actually have. As a girl recovering from the trau [...]


    19. *Received a digital galley thanks to In This Together Media via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.*Oh boy oh boy, you're in for a treat if you ever decide to read Aspen by Rebekah Crane. This little gem made me laugh insanely throughout the whole book with its dry humour and out of the norm characters. It's also a book that makes you feel all giddy inside, but also sad for the main character, Aspen, as she deals with the aftermath of the car accident she was involved in that kills a gir [...]


    20. My copy was provided by Netgalley.Aspen used to be a nobody at school. No one knew her name and the only way people recognized her was her crazy hair. The only thing weird about her is her mother who is a stoner with a weird boyfriend who smells and has holes in his pants where there definitely shouldn't be any holes. Yet one night, Aspen made a mistake that changed her life forever.She was involved with a fatal car crash. She lived with only a cast and a scar as a reminder of the incident. The [...]


    21. I'd give this book 3.5 of 5 stars. Too bad doesn't do half stars. I did like the book a lot.But there are always reasons why I don't give a book a 4 or 5 stars. I was thinking about it, then I thought about how I was a little confused in the beginning. My reasons for giving the rating I did was because I didn't think some sentences made sense, a couple grammar and capitalization issues, and it wasn't exactly perfect. A 5 star book is considered perfect to me. No book is ever perfect. A 4 is rea [...]


    22.

Two friends whom she cared for and a loving Mother was all she had - and was content with.An accident is all it takes to change everything. To be more specific, Aspen gets into a car accident with the most popular girl in high school, Katelyn, and suddenly everyone at school know her, gossip about he [...]


    23. ARC was provided by the author/publisher via NetGalley in exchange for honest review.My first impression of this book after I read the blurb and see the cover was that it’s a typical paranormal romance YA book. I think the cover suits for sweet-cute contemporary YA story, I liked it, though. It’s a pretty cover. But when I finished reading it, I have to admit that I enjoyed it more than I thought before I read it. It still has sweet-cute romance story with funny dialogues but it didn’t qui [...]


    24. FULL REVIEW ON: athousandwordsamillionbooks.bl*I received a copy from the publisher (<3) via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review:" "Sometimes, what we feel can't be described because it would take every word, every sound, every emotion ever created to do it." And That is how I felt, well feel, about Aspen. Stunned, and held captive from the first word till the very last. When it was over, I had to pull my head up from the pages and the world I found myself so completely immersed in, an [...]


    25. What an amazing story. Oh my goodness where do I start? I am ridiculously in love with this book. When I was asked if I could read it in exchange for an honest review, I immediately said yes. Not because I thought it would be good, but because I believe in supporting the indie community. I wasn’t sure what to expect since lately, most NA books have been very much alike: silly dialogue, instant attractions, bad boy meets good girl and they live happily ever after. Aspen breaks that pattern with [...]


    26. I requested this book for review from NetGalley because I fell in love with the cover the minute I saw it for the first time. Likewise, I also loved the characters in this book, as well the message that forms the heart of this quirky, yet moving, novel. Aspen is an unusual character. So is her relationship with her mom, but that is exactly what kept me glued to the pages. I was outright fascinated by the reversed-roles bond Aspen has with her mother, whom she fondly refers to as Ninny. Although [...]

One moment, you're only known as the girl who had a nest for her hair, the next you're the most talked about girl in school.We follow Aspen through her senior year as she recovers from the trauma, gains new friends, being invited to parties and fall for the dead girl's boyfriend, along with her best b [...]


    28. I received a copy of this story from Net Galley. Yay books.Spoilers aheadI kind of have mixed feelings about this book. Here you have Aspen, a girl that was in a head on collision in a car with another girl, katelyn, from her school. Aspen survives while Katelyn, well doesn't. During pretty much through the whole book, Aspen blames herself for what happened to Katelyn. This is why Katelyn's ghost is haunting her. She has a guilty conscience. But where most people wouldn't want people to think th [...]


    29. OUaT's ReviewI really loved reading this book about a senior named Aspen. She has out of control hair that is really curly. She hates it. She has a mother that thinks she still lives in the hippie days. Her mother is always having a new guy every other month and loves to smoke pot. Apen said throughout the whole book that she always calls the men in her mothers life as Uncle. Aspen is just a normal teenager that goes to high school and has friends that love her very much. Until one night Aspen s [...]


    30. Review: I can always tell a book is good if I cry at the end. Why is always different, but the tears always come. Normally, I can tell you why a book hits home with me, but this one was not so easy. I can give you a list of things that were perfect. But when it comes down to why I loved it, I’m stumped. There’s not one answer. And there shouldn’t be. It was just that good.The Fabulous: If I have to pick one thing, I think the trauma in this book is written really well. It’ll make you cri [...]
