A captivating ghostly romance from USA-Today bestselling author Edie Claire!

She thought that seeing the shadows was a curse. Until she saw him.

Seventeen-year-old Kali has always seen two sets of people: those living now, and those who lived before. But on her spring break in Hawaii, she is suddenly surrounded by more shadows than ever. Including one who, unlike the others, can see her too.

Zane remembers nothing besides surfing the monster waves of Oahu's North Shore. He doesn't even know how, or when, he died. He only knows that Kali's "gift" could be his last chance to find the light -- before the mysteries of his past plunge them both into darkness...

Our customer reviews

This was fantastic. I can't believe I never heard of it before, it should be a lot more popular. Kali can see ghosts, but they can't see her and she doesn't interact with them. Until Zane, the hot surfer dude. Kali has gone to Oahu, Hawaii with her parents for a few days to find a house. Her dad is in the military and he is finally being shipped to Hawaii, like she always wanted. Before she met the best friends she ever had in Cheyenne, where she lives now. She is hoping to meet some friends during her stay so that when she moves in June, she won't have to spend the summer alone. Kali's dad arranges for his friend's son, Matt, to show Kali around the island. I LOVED this book. This is Edie Claire's first YA novel and it was fabulous. I really liked her writing style and the reading just flowed. I could not put it down. Kali and Zane were both really likeable characters. Matt was too but for some reason, I felt suspicious of him throughout the book. Zane can't remember how he died or anything about his life and believes that Kali's "gift" will lead him to the light, or at least explain a few things. As Kali and Zane hang out, he gradually gets his memory back and we slowly learn about his life as the book goes on. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this book to anyone interested in the paranormal romance genre.show more
