Description

Hi, I'm Alexis Delaney. I'm your average 17-year-old girl. Except I can see the dead. And talk to the dead. And push them away and, well, help them move on.

So...okay, I'm not your average 17-year-old girl.

For years I've been struggling to survive the souls still roaming around. The shitheads always seem to find me. Moving from town to town every few months never helped either. More dead just always find me. But things are changing for me now. I'm moving in with my uncle Rory and cousin Tara. I'm finally going to be able to do normal teenage stuff I've been missing out on. Right?

Well, if this one bitch of a ghost could leave me alone on campus that would be great. Especially since I haven't told my new friends about my abilities. Can you believe this? Five good-looking guys practically adopt me on my first day of school and I still think they're a bit nuts for it. Now if I can only keep my life with the dead from mixing with my normal life everything would be great. Yeah...I don't see that happening either. But I'm going to give it a shot.

Who knows? It might work.

Light entertainment

The story and characters in this novel remind me strongly of Japanese manga and anime series - a perky, somewhat silly female lead who is inexplicably the only one who can save the world from vague, dark threat; the inverted harem of gorgeous boys who fawn over said character; convenient opportunities for romantic setups (no parental authority, permissive uncle who allows a teeenage girl to spend unlimited amount of time, including sleep overs, with a group of teenage boys), yet everything remains relatively innocent and childlike between all the main characters. The psychic plot is barely developed and most of the narration is dedicated to describe every single aspect of each gorgeous character, the clothes they wear, and cute funny interactions among them. If you want very light reading to pass the time, or to listen in the background while doing something else (like I did) this is the YA novel for you.

Interesting to say the least....

Performance wise I would say Kris Koscheski, and Carla Mercer-Meyer did an excellent job on all the narration.
As far as the story.... there are some inconsistencies. Lack of parental guidance. Why I found this in romance.... idk. If there’s romance it’s a slow burn. Like extremely slow. There’s only phone conversation, and the mentioning of feelings. Sex, zero. Kissing unless I blinked, zero. So if your looking for it, it ain’t here. It’s still an interesting story though. I want to know where this will lead.

Slow... but just can't stop listening...

This series was hard for me at first because of how slow it is to get to the plot... but for some reason, I just can't stop listening to it! I NEED to know what happens next. I love the dynamic between Lexi and the guys and I would love to see where this story ends up.

I am on my second listen of this series because I fell in love with these guys and their friendship with Lexi and I am waiting for the next book to come out on audio haha.

If you don't mind a wait to get to the goods, then I recommend this series. it's a good listen!

Good, but...

I enjoyed this over all. I saw badly want Lexi and zeke to get together! But I have a feeling I’ll not be getting that wish. I enjoyed her strong but light hearted attitude.

However, I do not get girls in books sometimes. I don’t get the devastation of “destroying a soul” when that soup REPEATEDLY TRIED TO KILL 6 PEOPLE. Like it’s great if it can be avoided, but you can’t just let it go around killing people either.

Slow build up, but the pay off was worth it! I'm moving straight on to book 2!

Good storytelling, WAY too many F-bombs

The story line was good, but the way the characters lived their lives is unrealistic and wow was there a lot of f-bombs. The author needs to enlarge her vocabulary.
