As a Navy brat and then a Navy wife, she's lived on three continents, in four countries, in seven states, and in thirteen towns. (Or something like that. She loses count.) She has two cats and an eleven-year-old boy.

I was a little unsure at first about Drew (whether I was going to stand reading her story all the way through), because she was just an angry ball of angry anger, but she got over it quickly(ish) and it was interesting to see Dead Drew and Alive Drew, how Dead Drew developed/evolved as things happened and how she felt about Alive Drew.

There is definitely a lot going on in this book; the main thread is "a romance" but there are so many other issues brought up along the way, and it's definitely not your average "love story" due to the characters' unique circumstances. I think I held my breath throughout the last few chapters, and my eyes grew wider every time I turned the page.

The story ends, but there's definitely room to write sequels. I was just noticing how pretty much every new book is Book 1 in a series these days and that I'd like to just read a story that starts and ends in one book, but here I am wishing there were a sequel to this, or that it were first in a series, because I like the characters so much and want to see where they go from here.

Such an enjoyable read. Will the author please write some more, and fast? I liked the main characters, with their teenage awkwardness. My favorite Andrea Brokaw book so far.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I thought it was fairly original as well, although I can see some similarities in the character to the girl in the TV show "Dead Like Me", but the story itself is quite different. It also seemed like a unique twist on the world of ghosts, at least compared to other stories I've read that get into the metaphysics of ghostly protagonists.
