This Is Not the End by Chandler BakerI wonder if for the rest of my life, I’ll be haunted by beautiful days.
On one cloudless, radiant summer afternoon, Lake Devereaux lost everything. The car crash claimed the lives of her best friend and boyfriend, the people who had become her family after her own fell apart. But she doesn’t have to lose them both.
The development of resurrection technology has changed the world. Under the new laws regulating the process, each person gets one resurrection to be used or forfeited on their eighteenth birthday. Mere weeks away from turning eighteen, Lake faces an impossible choice.
Envisioning life without one of the people she loves most is shattering enough, but Lake carries an additional burden: years ago, under family pressure, Lake secretly—and illegally—promised her resurrection to someone who isn’t even dead yet.
The search for answers about her future draws Lake more deeply into the secrets of her past until she begins to question everything about those closest to her. Betrayals and hurts both new and old threaten to eclipse the memories she once cherished.
Then Lake meets a boy unlike anyone she’s encountered before, who unflinchingly embraces the darkest parts of her life . . . and who believes that all resurrections are wrong.
Which path is the right one? And how can Lake start to heal when she cant move on?

This Is Not the End
As the Greenland ice sheet is unable to absorb water from the ocean as a result of high temperatures, sea levels will rise in the Northern hemisphere as melt water flows into the ocean, leaving large parts of Northern Europe submerged in The North Sea. Humans in our current form have roamed this planet for a mere period of , years — less than 0. During our relatively short stay we have managed to create a footprint on the entire ecosystem comparable to that of major natural disasters such as volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and meteor impacts. A dystopian future seems to approach as the end of the era of humans draws nearer. But from a larger perspective, this finality can be questioned.
