17-year-old Tracy Miller meets the love of her life in an amusement park...30 years after her own death. She's about to find out that love can be as scary as a roller coaster, but it could also be the Ride of Your Life. A story of undying love inspired by a true event.

Ride of Your Life is a bittersweet, romantic, YA ghost story that was inspired by a true event: the Great Adventure Haunted Castle fire, which killed eight teenagers in 1984. It is a fantasy novel about undying love, and it won third-place in Smart Writer’s Write It Now (W.I.N.) contest in the YA category, which was judged by Alex Flinn, the author ofBeastly and Cloaked.

Marissa A: " Wow, this was a fantastic story! I really enjoyed it; the concept was compelling. The writing was very, very good; it all flowed well. There was good development within the characters, and I thought they were pretty much all likable. Tracy and Mack have been gone for thirty years, but still are connected to the Amusement Park, where they past on, but you read their reasons for staying. Josh and Ashley are the new ones at the Park, after they lose their lives, but something about them makes Tracy change, and you'll see if its for the best or not. What I thought was sweet, was the building of an instant attraction or longing that Tracy and Josh have for one another. Tracy tries all she can to resist this connection they seem to have, but Josh won't let her. What I also really liked, were the fun looking illustrations that greeted us into each new chapter, looking at an illustration of some ride at the Park. With reading this whole story, it definitely gave me the urge to want to go to an Amusement Park with friends, and it will do the same for you, and oh eat some delicious food :) 

I don't know what else to say, but I left this story with a good feeling, and I think you will to, so do read this novel; it's a perfect Summer Read!"
