Smith-Ready writes movingly and well about music, first love and the drama of having too much responsibility thrust upon your teenage shoulders. Her world is first-rate and every one of her characters rings true. You'll want to read the next book in this exciting series immediately, but alas, you'll have to wait.
Sixteen-year-old Aura can see ghosts, but she's not the only one -- everyone born after the Shift can. Like the rest of her generation, she considers this a liability instead of an asset. But then her boyfriend, the sexy musician Logan, dies. Aura used to want to reverse the Shift, but with ghost-Logan around, she's not so sure. Enter dazzling Scottish exchange student Zachary, and Aura is torn between a living and a dead boy -- a dead boy who could turn Shade and be locked up for eternity.
