Logan had everything going for him: a budding music career, and a great girlfriend. Until he accidentally dies on his birthday. Now he’s a ghost who can communicate with anyone under the age of 16 because they were born after The Shift. His girlfriend Aura is one of those people. She is torn between wanting Logan to be with her, and finding the cause of The Shift so she can undo it.

I only managed to get 25% of the way through this before I gave up. I couldn’t stand Aura. She was a whiny annoying girl who seemed way younger than her sixteen years. I just couldn’t handle her any more.

I did listen to this as an audiobook, so the narration probably played a part. But the narration did seem to find the words and character of Aura. So that was a success, but I just couldn’t stand her.

The concept and storyline of the book seemed interesting and intriguing, and maybe it would make a great read, but it just wasn’t for me.

  1. I do not understand how this book was released in circulation. I have not read the works worse. I think this confusion, even a novice can not be so bad to write

  2. I am really impressed with the main idea. It looks strange to me, that the whole book should be related to the ghost’s life in this context.

  3. earlier I did not like to read and I had time for this, now I like to read and there is no time for it, now I’m reading the announcement of the job announcement

  4. I wish to show my passion for your kindness giving support
    to folks who need assistance with this onee matter. Your very
    own dediction too getting the message along turned out to be
    amazingly valuable and has specifically allowed women much like me to arrive at their ambitions.

    The helpful help and advice indicates a great deal a
    person like me annd even further to my mates.
    Best wishes; from ewch one of us.
