Goodreads Blurb:

You think seeing ghosts is weird? Tell me something I don’t know.

My childhood best friend Jeremy, happens to be a ghost.

Besides that, my life is totally normal. Well except that my dad went missing when I was six. But my mom makes it work. And I have annoying brother. See, normal?
So why does my life feel like a train wreck waiting to happen… oh yeah because now Jeremy is also missing.
Fate intervenes when Hugh, with his stunning golden eyes and similar dark hair, starts taking an interest in me. He divulges that he also shares my little “gift” of seeing the dead. Should I be freaked out? Yes. But am I? Okay, but only a little bit.

Senior year is hard enough as it is, but clearly I like a challenge.

I received this book from Mark My Words Publicity in exchange for an honest review.

I found this book hard to get into. Unfortunately, nothing grabbed me about this book which made it hard to finish. The romance was not developed fully (though, since it is the first of a series, I’ll give it leeway for that), and it just felt like an average read. To be honest, I skimmed through after the first few chapters. Not my favorite read this month. It was an interesting premise, I just wish the execution had been a bit more polished.
