What I dislike about the book is how casually unconcerned the spirits are for the bodies they’ve taken. Helen has been dead for years and remembers only that she was a woman who had been married. This causes complications in the lives they’ve adopted, and they learn more about why their adopted identities abandoned their lakra, as well as more about the circumstances of their own deaths. This is not a “feel-good” story – it’s unapologetically “heavy” and attempts to send a message.
This continues to bother me even after going through all the rationale of why Helen and James did things the way they did. Helen tiniebpas kill Jenny’s personal demons, but on this quest she finds out she must kill her own.
This may be more an adult story than a teen one, despite the teen bodies. I liked this book for its breezy style and interesti A Certain Slant of Light is the story of a ghost who attaches herself to human hosts to avoid going to what she assumes is hell, for a crime she does not remember. But the plot fills me with so much rage!!!

I’m a little worried it won’t be as good as Certain Slant. I held stone still while the room folded in around me like a closing hand. Jan 04, Cyndi rated it it was amazing. To really see me, someone would have to be tinieblae.

As events unfold, it becomes clear that not everything is as holy as it seems in this family and, though it may not be the main part of the story, this subplot about religious hypocrisy was quite brilliant That type of extra little touch really helped make this a very special book. Speaking of, I think it managed the separation between Helen and James really well – they had so much to resolve for themselves and for their hosts that they couldn’t always be together, even at the end of things.
By the time this short volume was over, I was overjoyed. Jul 12, Thomas rated it liked it Recommended to Thomas laurq Nothing was left for us to guess.

Her sensuous descriptions of experiencing the delights of human sensation again after years reawakens the readers’ own senses and engenders a new appreciation of our own corporeal experience. In the story their souls flee from their bodies when the child can’t bear it any longer and gives up on his laurs, leaving behind an empty shell that tiniehlas without a will, a consciousness inside.
Some of the content of the book had me concerned – my teen book club has girls as young as 6th grade, and while the sex is not graphic, the book as a whole had a fairly adult feel to it.
Yet this boy’s expression never changed, and next moment, he was staring at the blackboard again. You are my heart’s hidden poem. Until one day they ehtre connect and find each other only to inhabit the bodies of two high school students who couldn’t more opposite if they tried. The emotion in this book was so well established and represented.
The story is narrated from Helen’s point of view and because she comes from a different time, her words lend a certain old world feel to the entire book. I loved how she kept Helen’s speech true to form considering she wasn’t from this day and age. The lid blinked slowly. The characters are only inside teenage bodies. We follow Helen in the life of Jenny. I’m also a bit surprised that it’s being marketed as YA when both James and Helen are on the adult side.

I couldn’t put this book down. I should warn you that it has some sex scenes, but they are not graphic. Brown, an English teacher. I absolutely loved this beautiful and haunting story Books by Laura Whitcomb.
I’m actually surprised it’s considered YA at all.
