Publisher's Summary

Having solved the matter of the Radiant Boy, Riley, Buttercup, and Bodhi are enjoying a well-deserved vacation. When Riley comes across a vicious black dog, against Bodhi’s advice, she decides to cross him over. While following the dog, she runs into a young ghost named Rebecca. Despite Rebecca’s sweet appearance, Riley soon learns she’s not at all what she seems. As the daughter of a former plantation owner, she is furious about being murdered during a slave revolt in 1733. Mired in her own anger, Rebecca is lashing out by keeping the ghosts who died along with her trapped in their worst memories. Can Riley help Rebecca forgive and forget without losing herself to her own nightmarish memories?

    Second book was pretty good. Some parts were pretty emotional! On to the next book.

    "Intriguing"
    What did you love best about Shimmer?

    It's easy listening.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like how the story melts between the life of a young 12 yr. old who finds herself struggling and dealing with her own afterlife as well as what happened in her life before she had an afterlife, and her interaction with her "spiritual guide" and dog who accompanies her.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There's a scene where the dog is facing his fears of separation, & how the girl manages to help him overcome that fear - very touching description.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The scene where the dog was curled up & in fear did make me feel for him.


    Any additional comments?

    Get this book if you like teenage-slightly supernatural -animal loving & very slightly romantic stories.
