Everything about this book was just so simplistic, it wasn't mysterious at all and the reveal was obvious and let me down. I think mental illness and taking medications for it were handled very poorly. Not recommended!

Unfortunately, I read this. I'm sorry to say this so bluntly, but this sucked. It read like an early-middle grade and not YA. The writing is lazy, and the characters are dull and undeveloped. The story was not fleshed out well, and the characters' reactions were absolutely unrealistic. It was very simple which is disappointing because it had so much potential. I only kept reading because the story was about ghosts.
