4.5/5 stars

I admit it, this book is predictable. That said, it really doesn't matter. Really.

While this is a YA book, and like so many YA books has insta-love (and that does drive me just a little crazy), this one actually has a reason for it. So I was easily able to over-look it.

The writing was great, with so many fantastic descriptions. The characters really did feel real. I loved that Emma hung out at the cemetery (ghoulish? Maybe just a tiny bit, but it works). Her parents were great. So many YA books have dumb parents -- it was a relief to see parents acting realistically. Alex was very complex, which he really needed to be to pull this off.

A great book, a little creepy, a few disturbing things to keep that creepy feeling.
