@BookSparks #FRC2014: Ghosting by Edith Pattou

On a hot summer night in a Midwestern town, a high school teenage prank goes horrifically awry. Alcohol, guns, and a dare. Within minutes, as events collide, innocents becomes victims—with tragic outcomes altering lives forever, a grisly and unfortunate scenario all too familiar from current real-life headlines. But victims can also become survivors, and as we come to know each character through his/her own distinctive voice and their interactions with one another, we see how, despite pain and guilt, they can reach out to one another, find a new equilibrium, and survive.

Told through multiple points of view in naturalistic free verse and stream of consciousness, this is an unforgettable, haunting tale.

My Review 5 Spooky Stars

Well this is the first book I've finished in verse. I had had this as an ARC a while ago. I can't remember if I liked it or not as I couldn't find the review.  But I have to say that once I got into it I was hooked.  This book was so well done in a way that it still felt like a normal book.  Split into Before and After and then mulit POVs this book will take you on a ride that you will not really forget!
