At the start we have an unhappy teen having to spend her final year at school staying with her aunt Nora, while her mother is working in Japan. Starting a new school for your final year warrants it’s the end of the world, but moving across country means it is the end as we know it.
So meeting Bowen, and partnering him for a journalism assignment was a saving grace for Rory.
A good book to read at this time of the year, so I was looking for a good Ghost story, which we have to a certain degree. Then we have a murder with some romance.
I enjoyed reading the book, and the angst was perfect. I have to say I was so involved in the story I was cold every time the temperature was mentioned, and ended up wearing a thick jumper all the time all the time I was reading this story. Overall I would say a good Young adult book. I would let the teens in my house read it. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
However, while the writing is good, the book seems to struggle with exactly what it wants to be. Is it a mystery? Is it a ghost story? Is it a romance between the two main characters?
I enjoyed the book; however, I would have preferred if it had stayed a little more in the paranormal, spooky realm and had not included the mystery of the body they found in the graveyard; especially considering the time of year that I read it.
Again, great writing and it was not a bad book. I just felt that at times it struggled with exactly what it wanted to be.
This was a great read for me. Well written and interesting, I liked that it wasn’t a classic ghost story. Rory is a rather typical 17 year old girl and Bowen an average 18 year old guy. They dig each other and romance develops. The romance aspect was not the central focus of the story and I liked that. The story mostly followed Rory’s story progression but occasionally we got the aspect of the mystery killer. I enjoyed the progression of the story and getting to know the inside thoughts of this character. The story took interesting turns that kept things fresh and made the book an easy one-sitting read.
The author does a great job creating the scenes playing out in the story. The characters are fleshed out well and it is fairly easy to grasp who they are and their motivations. I liked the development of the recurring characters that kept this young couple living a normal life amid the unrealistic story that unfolds around them. Many times a book will focus so much on the mystery that you wonder how a couple of teenagers are able to just galavant around focused on being the Scooby Gang and not facing consequences; this story gave a more natural progression to the happenings experienced by Rory and Bowen. I enjoyed this book and would gladly read more by this author.
I received an ARC copy of this book to review.
