"Darcy Patel has put college on hold to publish her teen novel, Afterworlds. With a contract in hand, she arrives in New York City with no apartment, no friends, and all the wrong clothes. But lucky for Darcy, she's taken under the wings of other seasoned and fledgling writers who help her navigate the city and the world of writing and publishing. Over the course of a year, Darcy finishes her book, faces critique, and falls in love. Woven into Darcy's personal story is her novel, Afterworlds, a suspenseful thriller about a teen who slips into the 'Afterworld' to survive a terrorist attack. The Afterworld is a place between the living and the dead, and where many unsolved--and terrifying--stories need to be reconciled. Like Darcy, Lizzie too falls in love ... until a new threat resurfaces, and her special gifts may not be enough to protect those she cares about most."-- from publisher's web site.
In alternating chapters, eighteen-year-old Darcy Patel navigates the New York City publishing world and Lizzie, the heroine of Darcy's novel, slips into the "Afterworld" to survive a terrorist attack and becomes a spirit guide, as both face many challenges and both fall in love.

I found the book-within-the-book intriguing. I listened to the audiobook, so I got them in alternating chapters (rather than doing one, then the other). It was easy enough to follow, since it felt like normal PoV shifts, even though the two "books" are different genres. I didn't finish it because I didn't like where the contemporary plot was going, but it was an intriguing read.
