about

Sabine isn't like anyone else. For as long as she can remember, she's had two lives. Every twenty-four hours she 'Shifts', living each day twice. In one life, Sabine has everything: popular friends, expensive clothes, perfect grades, and the guy everyone wants. In the other, Sabine's family struggles with finances, and she and her friends are considered rebels. But then she meets Ethan. He's gorgeous, challenging, and he makes her feel like no one ever has before.

All Sabine really wants is the chance to live one life. When it seems like this might finally be possible, Sabine begins a series of dangerous experiments to achieve her goal. But is she willing to risk everything-including the one person who might actually believe her?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting! I read this book about 3 years ago, when I had to do a book report for school. The first thing I noticed was the cover, and I read the summary and decided to read it. I was really impressed with this, and I thought that the concept of the book was so interesting and original.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but I wanted more Sabine has always lived two lives. At midnight she shifts into her other life and lives it twice. Her different lives take completely different paths and in doing so she realizes that they're both separate. What happens when she finally realizes that one life can be extinguished, will she stay and fight on or will she give up? I really enjoyed this concept. It's a take on David Levithan's Every Day book. I like how in each alternate world, her life is completely different and her personality and attitude changes as well. The relationships she has with each of her friends also reflect her social status at school which I found interesting since in one she's a loner and the other she's popular. What clearly irked me was her "perfect" boyfriend and everyone telling her they were so beautiful together. When in reality it's all just smoke and mirrors. You can tell she was unhappy. I loved how the romance was played out even though I found it to be rather quick. In a span of two weeks, she ends up falling in love. The pacing was pretty much perfect because the timeline spanning her graduation day was the day we were leading up to. I wanted more explanations about her ability and why it only happened to her. I thought she'd also find out where Ethan was after what happened in her other life, but it didn't need to happen since that ending was the cutest. Overall, I recommend this story to romance and paranormal fans everywhere. It's a quick read for anyone who is willing to question life and death and what happens when your life can be broken into two paths.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from disappointing I am just so disappointed with this book. I love love (yes double love) Jessica Shirvington's Violet Eden Chapters series and I devoured all five books and think the romance is one of the best developed romances in YA books? however One Past Midnight, be it the plot, character development, or romance.. everything fell completely short and flat. The beginning was very promising, with Sabine living two parallel lives.. basically reliving her day twice, at exactly 12:00am each day she transfers to her first life, then after her 24 hours, she transfers to her second one, and after that 24 hours, she's back to the first, at exactly 12:01, so she technically doesn't miss anything from both worlds. One day she discovers that breaking her wrist in one world didn't transfer in the other, the first time this has happened. She goes on a quest to try and test this theory further by cutting herself (disgusting btw, had to skip that page), burning herself (skip again), taking laxatives, etc. All that to see if it does transfer, and if not then she can finally end one of her lives. Scary right? yes yes it is! however author took a completely different turn with it and Sabine just started doing stupid things that got her into unnecessary situations and everything was so so convenient on the romance line. The ending was too perfectly wrapped up and I just couldn't handle it. I honestly expected so much more from Shirvington but I was sadly disappointed.
