The First Time Lauren Pailing Died by Alyson Rudd *Publication Day*

The First Time Lauren Pailing Died

The First Time Lauren Pailing Died by Alyson Rudd

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Lauren Pailing is born in the sixties, and a child of the seventies. She is thirteen years old the first time she dies.

Lauren Pailing is a teenager in the eighties, becomes a Londoner in the nineties. And each time she dies, new lives begin for the people who loved her – while Lauren enters a brand new life, too.

But in each of Lauren’s lives, a man called Peter Stanning disappears. And, in each of her lives, Lauren sets out to find him.

And so it is that every ending is also a beginning. And so it is that, with each new beginning, Peter Stanning inches closer to finally being found… 

My Thoughts:


Thank you to NetGalley and HQ books (HarperCollins) for a review copy.

I really enjoyed this book – especially as a ‘light sci-fi’ fan – the idea of Lauren living (and dying) in multiple lives creating multiple interesting stories.

I am happy to recommend this book as a five star read. I look forward to reading more from Alyson Rudd in the future.
