Sixteen-year-old Owen Parker may be a mortician's son, but that doesn't mean he's seen a ghost.
Until one night...
This short novelette is the first young adult book in The Good Shadows Series. If you adore falling in love, this series is for you.
The characters are described and developed with great skill. It was a gentle and sensitive story and one that held my interest to the end. I am sure most 'young adults' would enjoy reading this and perhaps also learn some life lessons along the way, without ever feeling they were being preached at.
Suspenseful and Entertaining
There is a lot of intrigue and mystery in this story and it's very well written. I enjoyed it immensely. It is geared to a YA audience but I am not YA and I think it has broader appeal.
Intriguing Intro Into a new Series
I really liked the setup for this novelette and think the author did a great job of teasing the potential of her new series set in the same world.
