Kessler delicately plumbs emotional depths, avoiding easy outs. With narration alternating among them, the three principals, all white, are well-drawn, but the increasingly desperate Joe exerts the strongest pull on readers. Though dead, the charismatic Joe tows this delicate romance from the genre shallows into deeper, darker waters, where holding onto love literally separates life from death.
This thoroughly romantic story is heartbreaking but hopeful: Kessler gives Joe a reason to cross over, and Olly and Erin a reason to live.
The novel deals with issues of death, bullying, grief, and suicide in a nonpatronizing way. There is also a predictable love triangle. Fans of Twilight and other paranormal romance titles will enjoy the impossible situation in which Erin and Joe find themselves.
—School Library Journal
Bullying, suicide, drugs, betrayal—a plot summary makes it sound like just another problem novel. But Kessler’s delicate portrayal builds empathy for the three characters who share narrating duties...Chapter headings announcing each narrator help clarify the exposition, and distinctly different narrative voices let the reader see each character through multiple points of view. The jargon-free British setting will not deter American readers.
A paranormal romance not to be missed.

She set up her characters well so they felt realistic and their motivations rang true but the story was very slow paced in the beginning which took something away from being able to enjoy it fully. Eventually I got over the hump and the story took off as I was able to get to the Kessler writing I was familiar with.
It’s not a bad book it’s just that it started off kind of boring with no real distinction in narration so it felt a bit monotonous. If you hold on and keep reading it really starts to hit you so you feel for her characters.
Just when you think you know how this story is going to end, the author throws a surprising twist. Written from the three main characters perspective, there is a rawness that creates a genuine feel to the characters. Major themes are: loneliness, loss, bullying, and suicide.
