After the accident, she finds that she is haunted by a transparent boy in a lab coat named Quint. Unsure whether he's a hallucination or a ghost, she has no choice but to trust him as they become embroiled in a plot that is bigger than either of them realize. Together, they must figure out who caused the explosion before the culprit comes back to finish Camryn off for good.

Afterimage bridges an action-packed plot with a raw and believable romance between Camryn and Quint, and their love only becomes more complicated when they discover the truth about Quint's identity.

Afterimage also deals with issues of mental health. Camryn has panic disorder and struggles with panic attacks throughout the novel. Though anxiety is often portrayed as a weakness, Camryn is the hero of the story.

Review quote

This tale deserves a prominent place on sci-fi shelves.-- School Library Journal

"[This] high-action, science-fiction thriller starts with a bang and never slows for a beat. ...[P]lot twists, flashbacks, and alternate timelines keep the story full of surprises. A wild, fast-paced ride full of unexpected turns." --Kirkus Reviews

Hughes' character-driven science fiction pulls the reader through a dizzying maze of complex but logical plot twists... --Booklist

"A heart-pounding thrill ride that explores how far we'd go to fix our mistakes--and what it means to face them."
--N.K. Traver, author of Duplicity

"Hughes has created a roller coaster ride that kept me on the edge of my seat, with an ending that was so mind-blowing and satisfying that I'm sorry it had to end."
--Jennifer Park, author of The Shadows We Know by Heart
