This book was amazing! It was so good that I bought it, and still loved it the second time around! This is one of those timeless romance novels that will capture your heart and never let go! I don't recommend this book for younger teens though, because there are sex scenes in it.

A beautiful book! At first it seems a bit slow, but the love affair between the spirits, mixed with unravelling the mystery of their deaths, plus the mystery of their "hosts" lives makes for a compelling read.

An interesting tale of spirits that take over and inhabit two teenaged bodies. Teens who enjoy books about ghosts or relationships will enjoy this book.
