written by Laura Wiess

Rarely before has such poignant and beautiful writing been seen in YA literature. Laura Wiess paints a picture of two really messed up teens, written hauntingly in the 2nd person perspective. While some parts remain predictable, the book is cleverly crafted. The plot is twisted, but the delivery turns out weak, the whole "incident" everything led up to just doesn't feel as huge as it should (I was certain there would be a death involved...). Nevertheless, in the end, it's a book about the characters. The two girls, Blair and Ardith, whose spirits reside within ordinary teens today. Their scenes are emotionally evocative, downright scary at times, but every word rings true.

Rating: 4.5/5
