Freak. Weird. Crazy. These are the names tossed around seventeen-year old Jane Watts by her fellow classmates. But things aren’t always as they seem. Sometimes there’s a reason for talking to yourself in the hallway at school. Adjusting to her new home and school after an abrupt move, Jane wants one thing in life—to be like everyone else at school, but that’s hard to do when you’re the new kid. Although she does manage to make one friend, Evan—he’s sixteen, charming, and protective. Everything a girl could want in a best friend…with one minor caveat. He's dead. Caught somewhere between life and death, Evan is tied to Jane and the living world unable to complete the journey to the other side. She thinks he’s here to be her friend, to take care of her, and that’s why no one can see or hear him. That is until a new boy shows up at school after a rumored stretch in Juvie. Connor can see Evan and he’s not convinced the ghost is being completely honest. From his own experience ghosts tend to need something from the humans they connect to and Evan, despite his arguments isn’t any different. Jane is resentful of Connor’s intrusion but realizes soon enough he’s right. Evan has secrets about his past and not only did his life end tragically but members of his family are still in danger. Jane must face her fears and battle Evan’s human demons to free both of them.

3.5/5 - This book has been sitting on my Amazon to-read list for months now. I'd read positive reviews about this from bloggers I followed but doubted I was going to share the same opinion as my views are almost always on the minority. However, though this is an indie book, I found Wraith superior t...
Those last couple of paragraphs got to my heart! So sweet!Really great, quick read.
Originally posted at Paperback Wonderland.This would be a 3.5, but I rounded it up to a 4.Jane and Evan are good friends, in fact, while the rest of her classmates avoid her and label her as a freak, Evan has always stood by her and talked her through her problems. Which, in itself, is a problem, si...
This review can also be found on my blog.4.5 stars really. This was incredible, but I had to take off some points for the lack of proper proofreading. I'm not usually one for ghost stories, but the blurb for this book caught my eye. Well, that and the fact that I 'know' this author from another medi...
