I'm reading this for my Chilling Children square. So far it's not exactly to my taste. The main character (whose name has never been mentioned and will therefore be called MC - Main Character) is a mostly closeted gay teen whose past suicide attempt gave him the ability to see ghosts. Something about it reminds me of Maggie Stiefvater's Lament, although thankfully MC isn't nearly as horrible as the main character of that book, just depressing. If someone told him he was a character in a book and asked him to guess what role he was playing, I get the feeling he'd say that his best friend Trace was the main character and that he was her sidekick.
Right now MC, Trace, and several friends are having a gathering where the "fun" activity is drinking something called Jim Joneses: a mixture of different flavors of Kool-Aid, vodka, and, in one special glass, a random ground up pill from the hostess's mother's medicine cabinet.
It looks like MC's choices for things to do are limited to 1) hanging out with friends who have terrible ideas about what counts as fun, 2) hanging out with a sexy ghost who almost killed him the first time they kissed and sort of had sex, 3) going to work, and 4) hanging out with Trace's younger brother, who is probably just as messed up as a lot of the other characters but who seems to be channeling it into his artwork rather than ingesting random pills. I want more scenes with the younger brother.
