I think this may be my favorite out of this series. I felt a connection with two of the characters in this book more so than I have felt in the others. This story went deep and at times became very creepy but that made it all the better.
Nothing is ever perfect...

A story about a bunch of young boys who are seeking love, happiness, and a boyfriend. The principle characters, Cedi, Toby, and Daniel begin a journey that involves lost love, new love, bullies, and of course a anti-bully ghost. I enjoyed getting to know all the characters involved in this story, those with major stories and those who supported of my favs was Chase. According to some of the reviews I have read, I must be a 17-year-old girl, if I enjoyed this
This was absolutely painful to read. I just don't understand all the good ratings. I get that this is a teen m/m, but the characters all felt like prepubescent girls rather than 16 year old (and older) boys. The characters lacked any depth what-so-ever and the dialogue was stilted at best. I persevered to the end, but I have to admit that I started skimming over a lot of it as it just became really hard work to read. A very disappointing read.

Very nice story. I do wish I had realized it was part of a series as I would have read the earlier volumes first. I spent quite a bit wondering how the Cedi story actually tied in to the other elements. That said, I quite enjoyed it.
I think this book is my favorite of the series. I love Toby and I think this book is just wonderful!

Too shallow, characters acted like girls. Bad one in the series.
