This is the best of the series, no doubt! From the minute shell was afraid of water I was bouncing with joy knowing that jacob was indeed alive. This book kept me reading, and I couldn't stop. Even my teacher wants to tread the series! This book kept me up at night, on my toes, and wishing it wasn't the final book in the series. This is without a doubt my favorite series EVER!Please, make another book, or a series much like this one!

wow!!! this was the perfect end to a series. i wished is would never end! it gives you 2 stories at once, and you are thinking, 'where is this other story coming from?" while becoming as emotional as stacey because of what happened to her boyfriend in the other half of the story. finally the 2 stories colide into one and you are hit with a feeling of shock and complete and utter dumbfoundedness. you would never see this surprise coming even if you read every review there was. this is a great series worth reading any time.

When I read the back of the book I couldn't wait to start reading it, but the book itself didn't live up to the back cover.

For one, it takes a while to get into the story. They touch on things without actually getting into exactly how her boyfriend Jacob died. It's not the first in the series, but a recap for new readers would have been nice.

In all, the book sounded a lot better than the reality. I think I may read at least another in the series, but I wouldn't recommend this one.

This book was the best book out of all of them. though I'm not saying i didn't like the others i just liked this one better because it made u think about who Shell really was and as i started reading it was getting excited hoping it was Jacob and i just couldn't put the book down. I really wish there were more books continuing this story because I'm in love with your books. You are such a good writer. You are my all time favorite author.

This is the 4th and final book of the series.It is told in alternating chapters between Stacey (1st person narrative) and Shell (3rd person narrative. hint hint)

Stacey is very deressed after the love of her life Jacob is believed to be dead despite the fact that his body has not been found. She will not accept the fact that she is dead she just thinks he is missing. (In silver is for secrects, he gets accidentally hit and pushed off a boat after trying to save Stacey from a crazy girl who is trying to kill her.)
After months of therapy and medication, Stacey starts school with her friend Amber. She does not want to attempt to restart a social life despite the encouragement of everyone. The story picks op when the president of the college asks Stacey to help his daughter who is also having mysterious dreams. Her dreams are about a mysterious guy being killed.
The story also deals with a guy named Shell.
He is part of this cult but does not know how he got there and cannot remember his past. He knows that he has something important to remember but no matter how hard he ties he cannot remember. He is befriended by a guy named Brick. He too has a past but he chooses not to remember.
It is up to Stacey to help Portia solve the mystery. Is it possible that Portia's dreams are somehow connected to Shell and Brick? And the biggest question of all IS JACOB STILL ALIVE?? YOu just have to read this book and find out the conclusion to the series!!!

The last three books in the series were rather good but this book is rather mediocre. Everything seems rather predictable. When one starts reading and if one has already read the other books in the series it's very easy to see what is going to happen. Even the ending of the book doesn't satisfy readers. So although it's not a complete waste I don't recommend this book.

Stacey Brown can't believe that she's going to the prestigious Beacon University mere months after the disappearance of her boyfriend Jacob, whose body was never found after the accident on the cruise. How is she going to deal with a normal life? To top it all off, she has a freakishly happy and bubbly roommate, Janie, in addition to her good friend Amber, she's been having trouble sleeping, and she's not dreaming about Jacob at all, no matter how hard she tries.

But then the president of the university asks her to help his daughter, Porsha, who's been having nightmares too. It takes a while to get Porsha to open up to her, but when she does, Stacey is shocked. Porsha's been dreaming about the death of a boy in a cult commune. And why does Stacey feel like Jacob is somehow connected to all of this?

Meanwhile, interspersed between Stacey's first-person narrative is a third-person POV of a guy named Shell, who's living in a strict commune with confusing morals. Shell doesn't remember anything about his past, only a few spells he can do with herbs. But he still has the feeling that there's something, someone he's missing in his life.

Shell's best friend Brick is in trouble with the commune's big guy, Clay, and they both want to get out of there. At the same time, Porsha and Stacey race to save the dying boy in Porsha's dreams. Stacey thinks that the boy might be Porsha's soulmate, just like how Jacob traveled all the way to Hillcrest Prep to find Stacey nearly two years ago. But what does this have to do with her?

Readers will probably figure out the ending pretty early on, but the chapters are suspenseful, and towards the end you cannot put the book down. Though I was sort of disappointed in the ending, feeling like it should have been more resolved, RED IS FOR REMEMBRANCE was a thoroughly entertaining read.

I was so happy Jacob was alive! I knew it was him when it said Shell. I just knew it. And what a coincidice that the president of the university's daughter was having preminitions about where Jacob was. It sucks that he only remembered bits and pieces of the times he and stacy shared together!!!!! And for the first time Stacy actually had contact with a ghost. I thought that was major cool!
