Charitykb | 2 comments Read this book in 2013(?), story is about a girl that has the ability to see the dead and who's job it is to walk the halls of the afterlife to get the dead back into the right doorway for them to find peace. I can remember it was part of a series. She was falling in love with a boy who shared her ability and had the same job and that at one point she got into trouble with the library of souls. I also remember she had to wear a key around her neck at all time to access the hallway of the afterlife. Thanks!

Jessica's suggestion of The Archived by Victoria Schwab looks promising.

"Mackenzie was just 11 when her Da passed along the heavy responsibility of being a "Keeper": one in charge of returning Histories to the Archive. A History is a sort of ghost, but more like a copy of a dead person's life. Librarians keep every History on a shelf, in a complex and rigid order. But every once in a while one slips (becomes restless and crazed) and escapes the orderly Archive into the chaos of the Narrows-a lightless series of corridors filled with doors. A Keeper's role is to return the Histories to the Archive lest they escape into the real world.
...she meets a strange-looking Goth guy named Wes who shocks her by confessing that he, too, is a Keeper, and she begins to bond with him."
