3.0% "Goodreads: "Oh, my God, she's reading YA!"

Me: I know, right?!"
4.0% "The Human⟷Ghost make-outs will never not be hilarious to me. And now there's supernatural cock-blocking!"
11.0% "Teenagers drinking like idiots, with a bonfire inside a barn filled with hay and whatnot. What could go wrong? *eye roll*"
54.0% "Uh, they just left that poor girl in the cemetery and never thought about her again. Rude. I hope she got payment up front."
65.0% "I figured something like this was going to happen. And that it'd be lame. This kind of is, mostly because the mythology has been ridiculous and all over the place anyway and this raises so many more questions. But there are elements that make it less lame than I thought it would be."
67.0% "Now I felt sick again thinking that I might have ruined his Christmas.

No, no, boys love it when the girlfriend they love breaks up with them and disappears without a trace. Merry Christmas, Joshua!

(And to the rest of you, but with much less sarcasm.)"
80.0% "Obvious villain is super obvious."
89.0% "I feel like this climax has been going on forever and I just want it to get to the point."
94.0% "Why are YA parents so useless? I cannot believe their mother bought that cockamamy story! It would have been so much easier to continue with the invisibility deal (however ridiculous). I mean...come on! I don't even know how many times I said, "I cannot" in various ways out loud at this one."
100.0% "Oh, so it's just going to end right there? Okay. Er...okay. So, we'll pick this up again in the third book I suppose.

I don't know what to rate this. Probably somewhere between 2.5 and 3 stars."
