We know from the start that Evan isn't your ordinary spectre. He can manipulate objects, including Jane's hair, which he pulls in class, causing attention she doesn't want. He's also very tight-lipped about his past.
Connor doesn't want to talk about his past, either. He wants to talk about Evan, and although Jane doesn't trust him, she's fascinated by him, and thrown off-kilter by his interest.
(And the chemistry between the two is utterly delicious!)
I'm hoping a sequel is in the works; Jane's inner voice is so fresh and real, I want to read more!
After being uprooted in the middle of her high school career, Jane tries to fit in at her new school, which gets pretty difficult when a ghost named Evan attaches himself to her. Jane believes that the reason she's the only one who can see and hear Evan, that he is there to help her through a difficult time in her life, he's no ordinary ghost though. Evan can manipulate objects, and even touch Jane.
Then Connor shows up, after what everyone says was time in juvie. Connor can see Evan too, which draws him to Jane. Jane doesn't believe him at first, but soon realizes the things Connor is telling her are true and that Evan's been hiding secrets all this time.
I really loved this book, and will definitely be reading the rest of the series. The triangle that develops between Jane, Connor and Evan (even though he's dead) is written really well and I really liked the characters. It's a quick read, fun if you're in the mood for a little bit of creepy on a rainy afternoon.
Jane aggravated me time and time again with her hot and cold feelings toward Connor, but I had to keep reminding myself that she was only seventeen, and, well, teenagers are by nature psychotic. I was grateful to the author for Jane's authentic voice. Too often teenagers are written as quasi adults and end up coming across as pretentious. Jane was genuine and wanted what a lot of girls her age want: acceptance, friendship, and someone to care for who cares for her back.
Evan was adorable. His playfulness and his friendship with Jane made him easy to love. That he put Jane's needs before his own for so very long spoke volumes of his character, and made his story all the more heartbreaking. Over and over again, Jane wanted to offer him some bit of affection and comfort, and I wanted the same thing. To see his pain, even in death, was difficult to handle.
Connor was a gem. That he and Jane had a common bond and similar past experiences made him the perfect match for her. I'm glad that he was persistent, not allowing Jane's wishy-washy feelings for him completely derail his intentions. Giving Jane the benefit of the doubt, I could definitely see her actions as a defense mechanism...didn't make them any less frustrating, though.
Loved Jeannie. Would have loved to hear more from/about her.
Without giving away spoilers, Evan's family's story struck a chord with me. I can empathize with them and their situation for it's one I'm personally familiar with, and I wish that their situation "resolved" itself differently. While I was angry, it was very realistic.
Last but not least, I loved the cover. I thought it was gritty and gorgeous before reading this book, but can now appreciate it even more for capturing the theme of the story so perfectly.
Over all, very enjoyable and entertaining read.
My only complaint with Wraith is that it had to end.This is the first book I have read by Angel Lawson...From what I have found this may be her debut novel..Dont quote me on that though.You first meet Jane and Evan in class with Evan pulling her hair..When Connor actually see's Evan who is a ghost everything goes from there.I feel in love with Jane and Connor and their blossoming relationship.Two people who needed each other the most found each other..Jane put up a bit of a fight but its wonderful how it plays out.While reading the story you see why Evan is still a spirit walking around and just why he needs Jane's help and why Jane needs Connor's help.Wonderfully well written!I would love to see this become a series and watch Jane and Connor's relationship with themselves and Ghosts Mature.Please keep writing.Im very eager to read more of your stories!
If you would like to read the book you can pick it up HERE on Amazon.Wraith is also on GoodReads.
