I felt the book only because the plot was amazing or anything but because it was relativel asy to read ( which is what I wan right now) and was interesting enough for one to keep reading.I have a few comments though.1) When Thea thought she was hallucinating, I know she was way too nonchalant about it as if seeing things is a common occurrence for people.

In al ways his ook offended me of another 90s YA, Dreadful Sorry, although this dealt with amnesia and not past lives.

She wasn ’ t sure if this ghost, Susannah, was actually herself and her memories, or if she truly was Thea.

I chose to put a break from he series- in part, because I was ired of struggling with it, but mainl because I remember reading Buffie as a teen and I kne her.

Typically, as an adult, I ind that I am neve as entertained by books/authors that I like as a kid.

It 's the great read for young and old, especially those who love ghost stories.
