A bitter sweet, foolhardy mission it is to want to know how much the boy you love loves you back. Ruby Parker, a seventeen year old singer in an all girl band, dies in a car crash after an argument with her boyfriend and finds herself on such a foolhardy mission. Yet once she starts down that path there's no backing down, no matter how crazy this mission drives you. Or no matter what crazy plane of otherworld existence this mission spirals you into. Or no matter that the answer you get is different to the question you asked. With the aid of bad advice from a ghost who is trapped by a curse, a little bit of magic courtesy of her unsuspecting half-sister, and a televised music talent show coming to town to hold auditions, Ruby makes more of a mess in death than she ever did in life. Bad choices. Right choices. Whatever. She'll do anything to find out how much Leo Culver loved her because everything she lived and died for depends on the answer.

Our customer reviews

~Received for free from First Reads on Goodreads IF YOU LOVE TEENAGE ROMANCE CROSSED WITH GHOSTS, READ THIS PLEASE! This book was the perfect mixture of real-life teenage angst and romance combined with the paranormal side of ghosts and possessions. The main protagonist Ruby was the most frustrating main character of a book I have ever read, but the reasons behind this made perfect sense. I didn't love her any less, I just hated her choices. She at times was cruel, deceiving and self-centered. But it was for love and as a teenager that made it alright in her mind. She was able to rectify this in the end with a realisation that what she was doing was selfish as she tries to help another cursed couple. I think the book was too short for my liking. However the ending was pleasing and satisfying. I thoroughly recommend this to anyone who loves to read teenage romance at its most raw and to those who enjoy a good paranormal story. D L Richardson's writing style is clear and concise and makes it an easy book to devour in a day or more
