I've really been into the ghost books here lately for some reason. This one was...interesting. It didn't blow me away but I am definitely interested and hearing what else the author can come up with. I think the main problem I had was with the MC. I just never connected to the main character and that's something that turns me away from a book fairly quickly. The concept was great and the prose was beautiful, but I just felt so "out" of the story almost the entire time I was reading. But I ended up liking the flow of the story overall.

Oh, also - the title reminds me' so much of Speaker for the Dead. I really miss Ender. Looking forward to more from this author!

Thanks to Goodreads and the publisher for this Firstreads book!

jesse cracking an ankle secretly? really? sounds kinda silly ...

Lyndsey It does sound a little silly, doesn't it? Probably why I still haven't managed to get to it yet. I should probably start being more selective with the books I enter giveaways for, but that just sounds like work. It's more fun to enter them ALL.
