My brother recommended this book for our book club after hearing some library people talk about it in school. The title sounded catchy – I am definitely into horror/thriller genre so it made me excited. The book cover is a work of art because it leaves the reader to his imagination what Anna really looks like. The first few pages of the book immediately escort us to Cas’ life – how he is unique and how the whole story might revolve on. I like how direct the author is because I became instantaneously comfortable with the lead character. Then came the business with Anna. It was an exciting read as to what really happened and how they could help her. I thought the story would focus mainly on them, but then it revealed a twist that haunts Cas’ childhood. I cringe imagining the boy-meets-girl love story because the way ghosts were portrayed in this book is far from usual. I like the content and the mystery side of things, but not really the romance part. Overall, it was enjoyable and I would still read the next installment in the series.
