Reincarnation is generally considered a religious concept which implies that upon a person’s death, their soul is transferred to a new-born. It sounds like the stuff of fantasy. However, even though Elizabeth feels as if her entire world crumbles at her feet when her parents announce they will be moving to Ireland, little did she know that is exactly where she should be.

An Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Expert Reviewer 2010, says, “Recycled Souls grabs the reader with a personal but very absorbing story, projecting the main character's emotions with unusual intensity. This contemporary Young Adult excerpt is written in the first person, from Elizabeth's point of view. Uprooted from her home, teenaged Elizabeth moves to Ireland with her mother and step-father. The writing style, expressive of a young girls' experience and accentuated by a dreamy present tense style, offers an excellent read.”

and for a guy to admit that, well, that just shows how good this book is...
This book not only has a happy ending, it has two happy endings. When you get to the very last page, and you wonder if what you're think happened has actually happened - well, it has. And that was where I had the biggest smile at the end of a book in years. Elizabeth gets moved with her family from California to Ireland. She hates it. But everything happens for a reason. She meets her soul mate in Jared and then something terrible happens. But everything happens for a reason. She meets Joshua who believes she is her soul mate but she takes her time going from friend to romance. Then something God-awful happens. But everything happens for a reason. Elizabeth reunites with Jared and they get the happy ending you've been hoping for. But everything happens for a reason, and EVERYONE gets a happy ending. Trust me on this. She must break with Jared in order to meet Joshua. It is absolutely necessary. If you believe in reincarnation, then you will realize that not all soul mates are meant to be romantically linked. Look at your family. And wonder... BTW, this book has the most heartbreaking voice mail in history and that is where I cried. But everything happens for a reason. If you've read this book and feel like talking about it, please hit comments. I really would like to chat with others about this book - especially the end.

A really enjoyable read!
I love the idea of two souls being connected and finding each other at different points through time. The coming together of two souls who may have been kept apart previously by circumstance, finding each other again and hopefully getting it right. Elizabeth has always be very good at covering up her emotions. Making people believe that all is right in her world.

If you have ever lost someone you love, the story is a must read. This is a heart wrenching story that starts off a little to fast passed. I was afraid that there wouldn't be any character development but you do get to know and care for the characters in the story. The characters go through rough transitions and tragedies. Some of the fast forwarding in the stoyline is a bit jolting but the ending is worth the journey. I will be reading more from this author.

A comforting peace of mind, a truly amazing high school love story
I first want to start by saying that i normally do not ever read romance novels, but after reading "The beginning of a life misunderstood" I then became interested in other novels by the author. So of course like any other sceptic I only downloaded the sample of this book and after reading through the first few chapters I had to purchase it. I am currently only on chapter 11 but it is by far one of the best novels i have read in very long time and also very intriguing because as I am reading I am also trying to figure out where the title of the book came from and now I think i understand. Now I have been out of high school for years now but I can fully 100% feel every ounce of feelings that Elizabeth has for Jared because I once felt like that towards somebody, however the world happens but this but brings me back to a comforting and peaceful place in my life which i had forgotten existed. I just want to say thank you for writing such a wonderful book and keep them coming.

My Recycled Souls is a Sweet Romance
I love this sweet romance about high school students, which I have never experienced because I didn't date in China in high school. The voice of this book is very personal and intimate. Elizabeth moved to Ireland from California with her mom and a new step dad. Life is difficult for her; a teenager and she had a lot to adjust to. It turned out that her step dad was nice and the boy she fell head-over-heels with, Jared, also loved her. Then a car accident had changed everything. Elizabeth was in coma and wheelchair-bound for a few months. She told Jared to move on so he did. Yet she couldn't forget about him and followed him to the Trinity College, where she dreamed of running into him on campus. Then Joshua came into her life. He understood her feeling toward Jared and was patient with her. He was not as possessive as Jared toward her and was willing to be her friend initially. Will Joshua be successful in getting Elizabeth's heart in the end? You can find out yourself. This book is a YA romance. I highly recommend it for anyone who is in high school or who is interested in reading an intimate young adult romance. This is Lynette Ferria's debut novel and she has done an excellent job.

This book definitely kept me captivated. I kept wondering exactly what was going to happen next. I will be honest and say, it felt somewhat rushed at times. I thought it could go a little deeper. I am 24 and still watch teen tv shows, I find it interesting to get into the mind of the teenager today. I thought Elizabeth could be a little harsh at times, but I do remember being young and easily angry at my parents, friends, etc.

A definite must read!!!
I was reluctant to buy this book since only 1 person had reviewed it, but I must say it was well worth it!
