The 57 Lives of Alex Wayfare Review

Hey guys today I’m here to review The 57 Lives of Alex Wayfare by M.G. Buehrlen…

For as long as 17-year-old Alex Wayfare can remember, she has had visions of the past. Visions that make her feel like she’s really on a ship bound for America, living in Jamestown during the Starving Time, or riding the original Ferris wheel at the World’s Fair.
But these brushes with history pull her from her daily life without warning, sometimes leaving her with strange lasting effects and wounds she can’t explain. Trying to excuse away the aftereffects has booked her more time in the principal’s office than in any of her classes and a permanent place at the bottom of the social hierarchy. Alex is desperate to find out what her visions mean and get rid of them.
It isn’t until she meets Porter, a stranger who knows more than should be possible about her, that she learns the truth: Her visions aren’t really visions. Alex is a Descender – capable of traveling back in time by accessing Limbo, the space between Life and Afterlife. Alex is one soul with fifty-six past lives, fifty-six histories.
Fifty-six lifetimes to explore: the prospect is irresistible to Alex, especially when the same mysterious boy with soulful blue eyes keeps showing up in each of them. But the more she descends, the more it becomes apparent that someone doesn’t want Alex to travel again. Ever.
And will stop at nothing to make this life her last. – summery

First, I recommend this book for everyone; I loved it! This book was everything I expected, and more! It has an interesting, fast-paced plot, great characters, and plot twists that you will never see coming!

First thing I want to talk about is the plot. The plot picks up very quickly and never slows down.  You are always guessing about what’s going to happen and who you can trust.

This leads me to my next point, characters. I love all the characters in this book, but specifically, Alex. I am not normally a fan of main characters, but Alex was probably my favorite character! I really loved how she was smart and kinda nerdy. I love it when protagonists are smart and nerdy because… A) I can easily relate to them, and… B) They’re so much less frustrating. When a character is smart, they don’t take as long to figure things out, meaning that I don’t spend time thinking they’re so stupid and wanting to throw the book at a wall.

Last thing is the plot twist. This book is full of great plot twists and surprises that you don’t see coming. Now I’m not going to go into detail on these plot twists but if you’ve read the book, you know what parts I’m talking about, but I was constantly surprised towards the end of this book!

Overall, I really enjoyed this book and am defiantly looking forward to the second book next year! I recommend this to anyone who enjoys time travel, SCI-FI, or reincarnation.

Questions- Who was your favorite character? Did you like Blue? Did you see any of the plot twists coming?
