Jess finds herself thrown in at the deep end with lots of questions and no answers when she realises she can see ghosts, and not just see them but talk to them too. The book takes us on her journey from losing her mother, being taken in by her aunt, starting college and having to deal with her new ‘gift’. She does this with the help of her neat-obsessed, good-willed roommate Tia and Dr Pierce, the parapsychology teacher.
Jess is confident and a bit angry, like a lot of teenagers, although she has lost her mum and started seeing ghosts so this can be forgiven, but she becomes more likeable as the book progresses. It was action-packed and a very fast read.
The only criticism I have is that sometimes the characters were a little unbelievable, like Tia, and the dialogue a bit unrealistic at times. It sucked me in despite this, there were some good twists and turns and unexpected moments, I’m looking forwards to reading the next two in the series and I would recommend it anyone who enjoys young adult.
