Shade by Jeri Smith Ready (lisa)

"Best. Birthday. Ever. At least, it was supposed to be. With Logan's band playing a critical gig, and Aura's plans for an intimate after-party, Aura knows it will be the most memorable night of her boyfriend's life. She never thought it would be his last. Logan's sudden death leaves Aura devastated. He's gone. Well, sort of.
Like everyone born after the shift, Aura can see and hear ghosts. This mysterious ability has always been annoying, and Aura wanted nothing more then to figure out why the shift happened so she can undo it. But not with Logan's violet-hued spirit still hanging around. Because dead Logan is almost as real as ever. Almost.
It doesn't help that Aura's new friend Zachary is so understanding---and so very alive. His support means more to Aura then she cares to admit.
As Aura's relationships with the dead and the living grow more complicated, so do her feelings for Logan and Zachary. Each holds a piece of Aura's heart...and clues to the secret of the shift."

Imagine not being able to touch the person you love. Imagine not being able to kiss him, or hug him or feel his arms around you. If you can imagine it, then you will know just how Aura felt. It sounds like torture right? You can look but you can't ever touch. In the beginning of the story, Aura resents her ability to see and talk to the dead, but when her beloved boyfriend Logan dies, it keeps her connected to him.

My good friend Damaris, creator of this blog, recommended this book to me. And after reading her review, I was eager to try it myself. Knowing the plot of the book, I was a little skeptical because it reminded me of another book that I really didn't care for. But this book was a lot different, and better. I would definetly recommend it to others, the ending will leave you wanting more!
