Dreaming in Subtitles (Hardcover)
Loralay Grayson is dead, or she should be, but she's too stubborn to go. Angry at a life of abandonment, homelessness, and a local familicide that deeply impacted her, the fragile bits of happiness she's found haven't been enough to knit her whole. As her family stands by her hospital bed waiting for the inevitable, she holds on, refusing to become yet another tragedy, earning her a personal visit from the Angel of Death.
Death offers her a deal; accept the story she was given and move on, or let this life unravel and start again with all her memories to weigh her down. Despite Deaths' warnings, Loralay 's determination is unmoved, and with the pronouncement of a single word, "Deal," she finds herself years into the past, minutes before her father is about to walk out.
Saving her parents' marriage, navigating high school, re-meeting her future husband, all of it is quickly overtaken by the need to save the lives of the four victims of the familicide that only she knows is coming. Loralay finds new meaning to the word loneliness in this carbon copy of a life as she balances the weight of secrets no one would believe.
