Somewhere Between Life and Death
Lurlene McDaniel
pg. 67

The antagonists in this book are Erin and Amy because they both cause eachother to have conflicts, but it is mostly Amy who causes the problems for Erin. Erin is sometimes jealous of her sister's go-getter attitude and how she lives her life on the day to day basis instead of planning ahead. She is jealous of her boyfriend and her humerous attitude towards everything. The main character (Erin) is kind of like her own worst enemy because she doesn't do anything to try to stop the jealousy, she just lets it eat her away. It is then justified because her sister is then involved in a car accident and Erin feels like it's her fault because she was the one who was supposed to be in the car. Her sister is now in a coma and Erin is trying everything to help her get out of it. She is spending tons of time at the hospital and talking to Amy. She is also curious the what the doctors are doing and trys to involve herself in helping Amy. If Amy comes out of the coma soon and is healthy then Erin will be satisfied. If Amy is still suffering when she wakes up or she doesn't wake up at all, Erin will be devestated.

  1. Wow this sounds like a really awesome book. It sounds kind of bitter sweet though like at least now she wants her sister to get better, but it took a car accident to make this happen.
