Ghosts! Ghosts seem to be a bit neglected in the YA paranormal world, especially as protagonists. I can’t help but wonder about Hereafter – Amelia is dead! How can that lead to a Happily Ever After? Maybe not all books need one? I am curious to see what this is all about.
From publisher website:
A stranded spirit, a sudden love…
Drifting in the dark waters of a mysterious river, the only thing Amelia knows for sure is that she’s dead. With no recollection of her past life—or her actual death—she’s trapped alone in a nightmarish existence. All of this changes when she tries to rescue a boy, Joshua, from drowning in her river. As a ghost, she can do nothing but will him to live. Yet in an unforgettable moment of connection, she helps him survive.
Amelia and Joshua grow ever closer as they begin to uncover the strange circumstances of her death and the secrets of the dark river that has held her captive for so long.
Thrilling and evocative, with moments of pure pleasure, Hereafter will linger with fans of The Lovely Bones and those who enjoy paranormal romance and dark intrigue set in a very believable contemporary world.
Hereafter will be in stores June 2011
