The Everafter by Amy Huntley

This realistic ghost story follows Madison Stanton as she figures out how she died. This book reminded me a little bit of Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold, in that a dead girl is telling the story of her life. (If you like Everafter, then I would highly recomend Lovely Bones and vice versa.) At any rate, Madison tells the story of her life through these objects she finds in a place she calls "is". Each object, like a pine cone, a sweatshirt, and a bracelet brings Madison back to the specific time in her life when she lost the item. Some of the items take her back to times she spends with her best friend Sandra, and some of them take her back to times she spent with her boyfriend Gabe. The ghost story part of this book comes in when Madison discovers that she can talk to other dead people, and that she can change things in her life like a ghost. In the end, I couldn't put this book down until I found out how and when Madison actually died. If you like a good ghost story or a teen romance then you will like The Everafter by Amy Huntley. To find this book on the shelf look for: FIC HUN
