Mit Während ich vom Leben träumte hatte ich ein besonderes Leseerlebnis. Nachdem ich die ersten Seiten gelesen hatte, schwankte ich zwischen aufhören und weiterlesen. Das Buch hatte mich nicht so gefangen genommen, wie ich es mir gewünscht hatte. Doch dann habe ich mir einen Schubs gegeben und weitergelesen - und konnte es dann fast nicht mehr aus der Hand legen. Nach großen Anfangsschwierigkeiten hat mich das Buch tatsächlich mitgerissen.

Estelle Laures Buch handelt von Eden, die nach einem Unfall für kurze Zeit ins Koma fällt und in diesem Zustand auf ein anderes Mädchen trifft. Nachdem Eden erwacht ist, stellt sie fest, dass sich das Mädchen, das ihr im Koma begegnet ist, im selben Krankenhaus liegt. Sie heißt Jasmine. An ihrem Bett sitzt ihr Freund Joe und Eden verliebt sich sofort in ihn. Aber hat diese Liebe eine Chance?

Eden ist mir nach bereits erwähnten Anfangsschwierigkeiten von der einen auf die andere Seite ans Herz gewachsen. Später schleicht sich auch Joe hinein und beide zusammen waren so berührend, dass ich nicht mehr verstand, warum ich anfangs so negativ eingestellt war. Ihr hin und her - was ist mit Jasmine? - wird liebevoll erzählt. In diese erste Liebe konnte ich mich sehr gut hineinversetzen.

Die Sprache, die mich anfangs auch etwas gestört hat, hat mich plötzlich verzaubert. So sagt Eden: "Ich bin nicht normal müde. Ich bin seelenmüde." Ein Satz, den ich so nachvollziehen kann.

Die Geschichte hat leicht magische Elemente, ein wenig fühlte ich mich an die Romane von Antonia Michaelis erinnert. Gerade die Komaszenen und die schwarzen Blumen erinnern mich an die Autorin. Vergleichen würde ich sie aber dennoch nicht.

Insgesamt ist Während ich vom Leben träumte ein sehr schöner, leicht magischer Jugendroman, der mich erst so gar nicht und schließlich umso mehr überzeugt hat. Die leicht poetische Sprache und die beiden bezaubernden Protagonisten haben mich berührt.

Well, this was disappointing. I had a moment at around 50 pages in where I considered giving up on this book and I probably should have followed that instinct because I really didn't enjoy reading this book. I did think that some sections of the book were better than others but I spent most of my reading time wanting to reach the end just so I could move on to something else.

This book opens with Eden having an accident that leaves her in a coma. As she comes out of the coma, she has to slowly get back to her life which turns out to be a lot harder than you would imagine. She feels a strong connection to another coma patient on her floor Jaz and eventually forms a bound with Jaz's frequent visitor, Joe.

One of the key parts of the book revolved around what Eden experiences while in the coma. I really found that entire section of the book to be more confusing than interesting. I had to go back and read parts of that section several times and was still quite confused. It made sense by the end of the book but I had lost interest by that point.

I thought that the parts of the book involving Joe were much better. Joe was my favorite character in the book by a large margin. He was really a good guy. Eden and Joe's relationship was interesting and a bit unusual. Unfortunately, it seemed to take a really long time for the relationship between these two to even get started.

I will not be recommending this book to others. I am sure that some people will enjoy it a lot more than I did. I was able to get through the book and would be open to trying other works by Estelle Laure.

I received an advance reader copy of this book from HMH Books for Young Readers via NetGalley. ( )

Feeling out of sorts with her twin brother and her best friend, Eden starts to walk away, but slips on the ice, hits her head on a rock, and plunges into a frigid river. She is rescued, but doesn’t regain consciousness for over three weeks. When she comes to, she has a hard road back to recover, physically and emotionally. Brother Digby and friend Lucille are a couple. She can barely walk, much less dance the ballet that was her life. She even has to relearn how to eat and drink. Will she be able to fulfill her plans of college and a dance career? Can she even manage to catch up and graduate with her class?

In the time that she spends recovering in the hospital, she starts spending time looking in at another coma patient, Jaz. Despite knowing nothing about her, she feels a definite connection with Jaz. Then she meets the only other person who visits Jaz: Joe, who has been best friends with Jaz since elementary school. Together, they hope she will wake up.

Eden has a really big coming of age in this story. Not only does she have the usual teenage situations to deal with, but in some ways she’s been sent back to childhood. Add a romance in- her first one- and some supernatural things, and it’s an intense story. I found myself really involved with her struggle and cared about it. The other characters, while I liked them all, were not very deep, but it’s told in first person so that’s understandable. I found out this is a sequel, and that some of the other characters were the focus of the first book. This book stands well on its own, though. ( )
