I'm a wimp when it comes to watching horror movies but when it comes to reading ghost stories; I'm a big fan! The book is quite enjoyable despite it's obvious non-mystery. A ghost haunting the kids of the ones who wronged her in the past. I picked this up assuming that this was a no brainer and that everything will be resolved in the end when Heath face-off with the ghostly; Catherine but the big twist really blow me away.
I love the pacing and the intensity of the book. And there's not so much gore, only the chilling creep factor that is quite refreshing for a horror book. It was interesting that the writer tried to make the book unique by having a lesbian character. We have quite a few gay best friends in books but I think this is the second book with a lesbian secondary character.
There's so many F bombs here and there that it got me mildly irritated. I don't know.. swear words doesn't sit kindly well with me. And the sexual violence (although only implied) are disturbing enough that I really don't think this book is suitable for younger teens.
All in all this is a quick and enjoyable read. The fact that it is a stand alone seems to appeal more to me. I love stand alones!
Recommended for: fans of male POV books and mild horror stories
Verdict: 3.5 stars.
