Wow - I can't believe this is labeled as a YA book! It seems too...heavy for that. I wonder what it was that made the publishers decide that YA fiction was the way to go here...

Anyway, this is a beautifully written, albeit pretty weird, ghost story.

I loved it, but I can see how not everyone would. It touches on several heavy topics (to the point where some people might get a little uncomfortable) and portrays Christianity in a way that not everyone will agree with. It also has a smattering of language and a few PG13ish sex scenes.

I loved it. The end made me weep. I think I'll read it again. Right now.
