Review by: Fran W on Jan. 6, 2012 :
An excellent contemporary YA novel, with a very believable and likeable protagonist who has several problems: he's a goth high-school-dropout trying to find his place in the world; he's a closeted gay boy who's been kicked out by his family; he's a lonely teen who yearns for romance and a boyfriend; and he can see ghosts. The way the problems are intertwined, the unexpected twist in the goth/ghost romance, and the eventual resolution, are very well done. The lessons learned along the way are subtle but solid. And once you start reading you can't stop. This is one of the best YA novels I've ever read. Buy two copies, because you'll want to loan it to your friends.

Review by: Timothy Pruett on April 7, 2011 :
I rather liked this book. The plot was well developed, and the ghost was really creepy (without giving the plot away, that's about all you can say about him). The young guys in the book were quite believable and all around nice guys. I recommend the book to people who like ghost stories of this sort. It's a good read.
