(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
I felt this book was really quick and easy to read. While I do think it was aimed at a younger readership, it was still entertaining for me, as an adult, to read.
I was really drawn into this book by the title and the front cover. I like reading ghost books and it’s nice to see a story that focuses on a ghost… rather than the ghost being revealed to be a demon.
I liked seeing Malden and Jackson interacting together, even though I did think they seemed to fall for each other quite quickly. I did like seeing some details of Malden’s mother… and it was good to have the opportunity to see something of her relationship with her father.
I didn’t feel that there was a lot of tension in this book. While there were hints of a darker past, I was a bit disappointed that there wasn’t much detail about why Emily looked so sad in her pictures.
It was cool to be able to learn about Jackson’s past and how his family was related to the building. I also thought it was pretty cool to see how the computer and chatroom were used by Emily. Some of the atmosphere came across really well and I found it really easy to picture a lot of the events happening inside my mind. I also thought that the language used by Emily sounded really authentic and helped to make her a more believable character.
Although there weren’t a lot of characters in this book, it was nice to see a few extra… such as the woman with her twins. I would have liked to be able to see a bit more of the surroundings, but the self-contained storyline was nice to read.
There wasn’t much mystery and I found I was still left with some questions. I would have liked to see more of an expanded storyline and while I did like the ending and thought it was sweet, it also seemed to have a rather abrupt ending.
This story didn’t require me to think too deeply and it did end fairly quickly. It was a nice, fast read and I would read more books by this author in the future.
