(YA Paranormal Romance)
"Being dead is a real drag." That’s what Gene Hawnt keeps telling himself while he stares out the window of the room he died in, unable to move on. He’s forced to watch his parents mourn him while unable to alert them to his presence. He can't even pick up his beloved comic books for entertainment. So much for ‘things that go bump in the night.'
Just when he thinks death can’t get worse, his parents sell the house to another family and leave for a new life without him. Thankfully, the homebuyers' teen daughter, Marti, is a medium who can communicate with Gene. As their reluctant friendship blossoms, Gene starts to think that death might not be so bad, after all. But Marti also harbors a dark secret. After her miraculous recovery from heart surgery, a sinister presence became attached to her, and it wants blood. Gene sets out to do what any self-respecting ghost should; learn how to fight back before it's too late to save the love of his afterlife.
"This book is totally and utterly brilliant... the pace ramps up and up and UP! Then remains permanently stuck on a fast boil right up until the amazing ending."
"The author has a beautiful way of bringing teen characters to life... I was so attached to Gene and Marti and it’s just a testament to how masterfully she wrote these characters. The story gripped me from the beginning and never let me go. It has heart and humor and [brought] tears to my eyes."
"Five stars... a ghostly beautiful novel."
