Release date: December 14th 2013
Publisher: Crescent Moon Press Inc.
Purchase: Amazon

Synopsis via Goodreads:
Seventeen-year-old Alexia Stone never wanted to move cross country. And she certainly never wanted to share her new bedroom with an amnesiac ghost boy desperate for her help. 

But after setting aside the assumption she’s gone crazy, Alexia engages in the impossible—she agrees to help the ghost discover who he was and what happened to him. Convinced this mystery is what’s keeping the phantom in the world of the living, Alexia puts her heart on the line to find out what his unfinished business might be.

Ultimately, Alexia must decide what’s more important to her—keeping her phantom
boyfriend or helping him finally find peace in death. What she didn’t plan on was not having a choice. One of them must move on, but what if neither wants to let go?

My Review :
 First I will say that this book should not be read by younger readers.  I would recommend for Young Adults ages 16 and up due to content and curse words.  This novel was not quite what I was expecting when I agreed to review it.  Though I believe many will enjoy the unique story by author Avery Olive.
Pretty well, written, but in some places the story did not flow as well as it could have.
Unique idea, romance with an Amnesiac Ghost who isn't in real life what he seems in the ghostly world.
A mystery that nearly costs the main character, "Alexia" her life and one situation after another thrown at the reader that at times can be a bit confusing.
Some cursing that I feel could have been left out and the story would have still had the same impact.
An ending that is not easy to predict, and was very dramatic and emotional - definitely not a light read.  One the reader needs to read more than once to be able to "catch" all the action.  
Overall, not a bad story - I would have preferred the book to be "clean" of course, but for those who don't mind a few "choice words" thrown in occasionally there are just a few throughout the story - I've read worse.  An interesting YA paranormal mystery romance.


Avery Olive is Canadian. She is married and has one child. When she’s not helping raise her very energetic and inquisitive son, she can be found working on her latest novel--where she devilishly adds U’s into every word she can.

When she is looking for a break Avery enjoys cake decorating, losing herself in a good book, or heading out to the lake to go camping. 

The release of Avery’s first novel proves to her it won’t be the last. As long as her family continues to be supportive, she can find the time, and people want to read, Avery vows to keep on writing.
