Great Philosophy

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go..."-Dr. Seuss

This book was sent to me from Bestsellersworld for review.

Haven Moore is living in Snope City, Tennessee with her widowed mother and her very controlling grandmother in her grandmother's very stately home. She is an outcast at school and creates beautiful dresses for her classmates with her best friend, Beau, who is also kind of an outcast, as he is gay.
Haven has experienced fainting spells since she was 4 years old. During these spells, she relives a past life as Constance. She is in love with Ethan in her spells.
Haven discovers that her father had been writing down and researching things for himself about reincarnation and the Outoboros Society in New York. The Society helps those that have experienced past lives bring talent and good things to the world.
Haven leaves her small town and goes to New York to find her past love. She finds him and the Society. Things from there in this book get extremely muddy.
We follow Haven as she finds her past love and tries to understand the Society that is supposed to help those who have experienced past lives. Unfortunately, life does not always run smoothly, and we find that there is evil in all forms.
I found the book to be well-written, just that at certain points it got fuzzy. You were never too sure if people were good, bad or just indifferent. Thought the book could have been a little less complicated.
