I loved this book. It was a very interesting perspective on life after death. I thought it was great how Amelia had to piece together her memories and had to choose between roaming the world of the living, or joining the world of the dead.

I really like this book. It is unique. Kind of like The Lovely Bones in that a ghost is piecing together the circumstances of her death. This book takes that a bit further and adds two characters, one living, and one dead. In addition to processing her death, Amelia is also torn between the living character (Joshua) and the dead one (Eli). Wonderful writing style.

Edit: now that I've finished the whole book, it also had a bit of a twilight feel. It got a little hokey at the end with the "intensity" and "happily ever after" at the end (c'mon, it's been what? A week since they met?) but still, an enjoyable read.

Lovely prose and a haunting premise will make this book appeal to fans of ghost stories and paranormal romance.

Book is predictible but it does not deter you from continuing to read it. You do want to find out what happened to Amelia and how her relationship evolves with Joshua. This was a good quick read. I enjoyed it and hope the second story is also a good read.

The back:
Drifting in the dark waters of a mysterious river, the only thing Amelia knows for sure is that she's dead. With no recollection of her past life-or her actual death-she's trapped alone in a nightmarish existence. All of this changes when she tries to rescue a boy, Joshua, from drowning in her river. As a ghost, she can do nothing but will him to live. Yet in an unforgettable moment of connection, she helps him survive. Amelia and Joshua grow ever closer as they begin to uncover the strange circumstances of her death and the secrets of the dark river that held her captive for so long.

I screamed. I screamed as I did in the first flush of death, angry and humiliated at my own lack of power. I screamed and slapped my useless hands against his chest.
At that moment his eyes opened.
He looked to the left and the right, taking in his surroundings. Then he looked at me. He looked right into my eyes.
I froze. Could he...see me?
