About the Author

Shireen Jeejeebhoy mayn't have been born in Toronto, but she has fully immersed herself in its fractious and neighbourly life to the point that she uses it as a character in many of her books. Jeejeebhoy received a B.Sc. in psychology from the University of Toronto. Her first book "Lifeliner: The Judy Taylor Story" won the 2008 Reader Views Reviewers Choice Award for best biography. Her first novel, "She" was shortlisted for The Word Guild Awards, Novel-Futuristic Category. Through Iguana Books, she recently published "Concussion Is Brain Injury," a true life memoir of her recovery from a "mild" traumatic brain injury. Jeejeebhoy is working diligently on her next two novels. When she is not writing, reading, taking photographs, she hunts for good coffee and sensational chocolate.

HASH(0xa246d0f0) out of 5 stars slow, inconsistent and mislabeled as "Christian Fiction" Sept. 30 2014
By bill - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The story was slow, drawn out through long periods of no process, when progress came the story skipped it and fast forwarded.

End was anticlimactic "Christian" aspects were confused, intermingled with self-help and alternate options of salvation.

WARNING: language Not typical of Christian fiction. F-bomb frequent, one particular page it is simply repeated over and over

HASH(0x9fbf4600) out of 5 stars Inspiring! Nov. 23 2013
By Bodicia - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This book is interesting for two reasons; not only is it a well written fantasy book in its own right it also holds, for me, a deeper meaning. The main character has been invaded by an alien force called Akaesman and this invasion causes the character to change radically; emotionally and physically. The deeper meaning is this could be the story of almost every person who has a 'hidden' disease, whether that be M.E., Fibromyalgia, Lupus or other disorders which can't be seen or understood easily by those around them.

Zarine, the 'she' in the story, is having a normal evening drive with her fiancee. On the way they encounter a force on a forest road which blows the car off course and causes Zarine to be slightly injured. Her fiancée gets control over the car again and they reach the edge of the forest where they are stopped by the Akaesman Patrol who look them over and advise Zarine to visit her GP first thing. After her encounter Zarine starts to change physically, mentally and emotionally. Her friends put this down to a lack of will, depression and laziness, mocking what they can't see or understand and telling her it's all in her mind. Zarine is bewildered but struggles on, helping herself the best way she can whilst facing professionals who tell her she is perfectly fine. Eventually she finds the help she needs and embracing faith and expressing true grit she pushes through to her conclusion.

This book follows the story of a woman who was normal one day and who gradually became unable to do the things she once took for granted. It looks at her relationship with her friends and family, the inevitable 'pull yourself together' conversations and the lack of care from some health professionals who simply don't have the answers but won't admit it. It highlights misconceptions about 'hidden' illnesses beautifully and, at one point, reduced me to tears with its realism, emotions and truthfulness.

Shirleen Jeejeebuoy has written a story people can relate to who have a relative or friend in a similar situation to the main character. Her heroine isn't there to be pitied, she is there to show there is light at the end of the tunnel and things can get better no matter what obstacles are thrown in the way or other people's ignorance. Resilience and bravery will win out.

Very inspiring!

After the first ten pages I knew this story would drag on. It took me over a week to finish what normally would take 2 or 3 days. I was exhausted myself after reading her 7 years worth of treatments before the final and abrupt conclusion.

SHE is written by Canadian Author Shireen Jeejeebhoy.

One fated night a young songwriter and her fiance are out driving when they collide with something unknown and unseen to them. Through the green neon winds this thing cracks the window and invades into her being.

As they approach the Highway Patrol the word Akaesman is first mentioned on that eve of Summer Solstice.

'An entity from nothing space and time, Akaesman lurks in his dominion, waiting, watching through his peephole into our world for the right prey. And when he spots a good one, he forces himself into our space and time, evading the Akaesman patrol, invading his chosen one. He spreads his evil to everyone, one by one, male and female, changing them forever into his image'

Not only is her songwriting ability gone from this moment but also her life as she knows it.

Can anyone explain what has happened to her? Can she rid herself of it, Can she re-build her life and be herself again?

I will be honest I was reluctant to read this book at first when Shireen approached me to review it for her as fantasy is not my cup of tea. After reading it, I'm still not sure where I stand on this genre! Shireen has written a book packed full of emotion and really gets over to you the struggle that this girl is facing without the support and love of her friends around her, and boy what a struggle she has. As the story progressed, I started to lose my compassion for the lead as I wanted more from her, I wanted her to help herself more but that is the point of the whole story and the part I had difficulty in understanding. I imagine anyone who loves fantasy novels with spirits that they can't see etc would really enjoy this book. My little brain has trouble grasping anything that isn't real!!

It's a strong story that flows really well. Loved the Grandmother character and the cat Smokey was adorable!

Thank you Shireen for sending me a copy of this book and I am really glad I did read it.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. Zarine and Jim are driving home from a road trip. While Zarine was napping, to her dismay, Jim decides to come off of Highway 10 and take a back road through the forest. Zarine is suddenly filled fear and begs Jim to go back on the highway. Out of nowhere comes a neon green wind that spins their car, damages the windshield and invisibly enters Zarine. Her life is inexplicably changed. This is Zarine's journey, fighting Akaesman Syndrome.

I love the fact that someone mixed an alien invasion into a Christian Fantasy novel. This book was brilliantly written, with the good versus evil concept. Akaesman, even the description of him and his behavior tells you that this `thing' is Satan. I enjoyed the fact that she needed to be spiritually strong to defeat him. There were a lot of parallels to Christianity, the way we think and how it assists in overcoming obstacles. I enjoyed this very much. I felt really bad for Zarine with the situation she had with her friends. The issues she had with them were realistic and so was what she was going through, her symptoms seemed close to Fibromyalgia. I loved her fighting spirit and the fact that she never gave up. All in all, a great book that teaches us to never give up, and that when you feel alone, you're not.
