really liked it
bookshelves: sf-f, ya
Read from February 20 to 28, 2010

I'm working on a high-school ghost story for novel two (hence all the recent ghost story reads), and my editor recommended I read this. As you can see from the stars, I quite liked it.

The plot: Two adult ghosts fall in love and possess high-school students in order to consummate their love and experience life again.

Whitcomb's prose is nice and clean, and she did a good job working with high-school "types" without making them seem like types. The end felt both too tidy and slapdash, and she included some (IMHO) unnecessary malevolent spirits; otherwise, a good read.
