I actually listen to audiobooks with this very purpose in mind. Usually, after listening on my commute home from work, I pull in the driveway with my fingers itching to get on the keyboard.(less)

Claire Gem is on page 140 of 336 of The Mercy of Thin Air: I'm listening to the audiobook of The Mercy of Thin Air by Ronlyn Dominigue. Like The Lovely Bones, it's written from the viewpoint of a ghost. Lots of characters, switching back and forth in time, a little confusing at first. I'll keep you posted.
