How do you prepare loved ones for your inevitable disappearance?  We unravel all this plus more in Joma West’s novel, “Twice Lived.”  In the novel, we follow a troubled teen, torn between two families and lives, while also navigating the challenges of shifting between parallel worlds.  As Canna and Lily face their final shift, they must prepare both families for their inevitable disappearance. “Twice Lived” is a coming-of-age fantasy that explores themes of family, friendship, loss, acceptance, and the unpredictable nature of life.  So, in this episode, Joma and I talked more about her book, and we had so much fun playing a game where Joma decides what world she would like to live in.
