What an amazing debut book from Vanessa Barneveld. This was such a joy to read. The words flowed easily and the characters jumped off the page. It's witty, fun, sad, mysterious and even has some romance in it.

Keira is surprised one night by the appearance of Jimmy in her room. He's there for help. The thing is he's a ghost and no-one else knows he has died. We follow Keira's investigation into his disappearance and helping Jimmy cope with his Afterlife so he can move on. Help comes in the form of Jimmy's brother, Dan, her ex-best friend. Lots of unresolved tension there.

Keira is a very likeable person who is pretty ordinary (in a good way) except for her newfound powers. She has a strength that is courageous even in the face of obstacles. She does have a habit of saying the wrong thing to Dan, which is so relatable.

Disclaimer: I know Vanessa personally but this doesn't affect my star rating.
