When I was 16, I incurred an out of body experience. This gave me absolute proof that our soul and memories are able to separate from our body. The only practical reason for this to be is because God recycles us, otherwise known as reincarnation. We go from body to body learning and hopefully improving.
We don’t get to choose our next body. We don’t get to research it in advance and then tell God we aren’t happy with his choice. We simply reincarnate wherever God sends us.
I’ve created a chart to help you understand: Liza’s sincere explanation of Reincarnation.
Yes, I really believe this is the way it happens.
Did you get all that? So don’t ask me why Cass didn’t research Casey’s life before dying and reincarnating in her body. That’s not how it happens. And it lets me know you didn’t read chapter 2 very well, because Cass is shocked to be in a teenager’s body when she wakes.
But how did she reincarnate in a teen? Casey had died and left the body. However, the doctors had revived her body, so it was a functioning body available for a new soul to claim it. God sent Cass in.
Do I talk about all this in the book? No. The book is about turning Casey’s life around and finding out what happened to her. Let me give you a glimpse:
Having been diagnosed with cancer, Cass Goldman decides to opt out of any futile medical care and end her life. While she has some thoughts on afterlife, she never expects to reincarnate into the body of a seventeen-year-old girl named Casey Davidson.
When she awakens in a hospital, Cass discovers two disturbing facts: One, she is now inside the body of a troubled teenager, and two, the former owner of this body committed suicide, but only Cass knows that. Everyone else believes Casey has survived, but suffered a complete memory loss. Cass has two choices: to take on Casey’s life and turn it around, or to confess the truth about her reincarnation and end up in a mental asylum. Given this second chance at life, Cass decides to take on the future life of Casey—the frightening ghoul-faced teen with short, black, spiky hair.
Every person around Cass has an ulterior motive and discovering the truth of Old Casey’s life is more complicated than the “new math” she is forced to learn in school. In addition, Cass has to contend with raging teenage hormones and the prior crimes of Old Casey, which she might not remember, but everyone else certainly does. However, her biggest frustration concerns her feelings for her father’s rugged security specialist who sees her only as a teenager and doesn’t want to explore the mutual attraction between them.
As determined as Cass is to turn this life around, Old Casey’s enemies are just as determined to end her life. She has no idea whom she can trust, but she knows she’ll never survive going it alone.
Upon settling down on the toilet, Cass noticed the floor to ceiling mirror facing her and screamed at the sight of the creature within it. Short black hair spouted about its head, black circles surrounded both eyes and fell like triangular knives down the cheeks. Black lips, stretched in horror as if in a nightmare. Pulling up her pants, she moved closer to the mirror.
She was a ghoul, an honest to God ghoul!
The door crashed open and her father stared at her, fear and panic clear in his eyes.
She touched her face. “Please tell me these aren’t permanent.”
His panic remained a second longer as her words filtered into his brain and then he pulled her into his arms. “Don’t worry, we will get them removed—if you want to…”
“If? Oh, I definitely want them removed,” she said.
How can I turn around my life if I look like the walking dead from a low-grade monster movie?
