A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light”. But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all.

I'm on my dads account writing this btw..

For starters at first i was doubtful because of the cover..I thought oh it's gonna be another one of those books with a great cover but a shitty story..I was like ohhh great..But from the begingnig i liked it..
I love Charleys quirks and her sarcasm it brought light to the story..I enjoyed the Mr. Wong in the creepy corner thing..But what kept me writing was this love with Rayus that she had..And how he's a creature not anything like she's seen..I def. had fun reading..The characters were witty and funny and had great comebacks..I noticed charley tends to get hurt a lot which is great because it adds ot the point why Rayus saves her..I loved uncle Bob and Garret..Though i sorta wish she had more with Garret than just a bruting friendship...I would def. recommended this book!!!!!

Kerry is chosen by the coolest clique in school, and so she thinks life has finally begun. But then it seems all over when her three friends are killed in a shocking car accident. Or are they? Only weeks after the accident, Kerry receives a text from one of the girls: "Were all 3 here at my aunts in the city. Take the 3:50 train. B there." Exhilarating suspense is crossed with a thought-provoking examination of peer pressure in Richard Peck's return to his contemporary teen- and ghost-story roots.

Okay the story..Pretty much is about a outsider becoming one of the insiders..
It bugs me that Carrie was into go with them..She is just so ughhh! it bugs me.
There will be a moment when she doesn't have much time..yet she will reminiscence on what is in the room such as the clouds or the leaves..It makes me annoyed!
The old lady tells her to run for her life from these girls! and she goes straight to the three girls!
she is so desparte to be popular.
It is a good story..But i would just rather had spend my money on something important i would get this if you have a credit though to try it.

Vampire Michael Glass just received the call he's been waiting for all his life. His music has attracted the attention of a heavily connected music producer who wants him to cut a demo and play some dates---which means that Michael will have to enter the human world. But he won't be alone. He's been assigned an undead escort, which includes immortal enforcer Oliver, as well as Michael's human friends: rebellious Eve, oft-misunderstood Claire, and courageous Shane.

So Okay I have read every single morganville book and i love them a few better than others but by far this book was just a thud morganville should take place in MORGANVILLE..
Because well a huge seris of events happened but does it ever get to the point?
I mean yeah some things were exciting to read or Hear but if you think about it..This book just really sucked i didn't find myself sucked into the world of this book i would usually listen to it whilist doing something like facebook but this book was so unintresting that i didn't even know it was on it gets boring.
I mean I saw ALOT more spice in Clarie this time around but it just seems it's the same border line vampire story in this one it's not unique like the others this one is just
Vampire and friends going out of morganville trouble is gonna happen not going to do what they said they were etccc.It's predictable.

When Phoebe's mom returns from Greece with a new husband and moves them to an island in the Aegean, Phoebe's plans for her senior year and track season are ancient history. Now she must attend the uberexclusive academy, where admission depends on pedigree, namely, ancestry from Zeus, Hera, and other Greek gods. That's right, they're real, not myth, and their teen descendants are like the classical heroes - supersmart and superbeautiful with a few superpowers.

So i read some bad reviews on this but i thought i should listen to it myself for juding it..this book is for pre-teens (like me) it's not for 20-40 women half of the views come from that age group on here it's quite sad because for teens they put back such good books..I really like the idea of this book at some points it annyoys me and then it doesn't..I love the people in this book i especially like her step - father he is very witty , This is like cinderella with a twist of myth legends and love..since Stella is going after the prince charming but Phobe get's to him they have hardships and blah blah blah..But over all this book is amazing.

Ok so to break it down for you this book is for teens 14-18 this is ONLY for that age group some people don't understand on here that they don't like it because it's not there taste because they're ethier like 26-40 And because of that they don't have the imagination or the mind set to like it.
So don't read the comments and decide not to try it that would be a silly choice.
I'm 15 and i really loved this book it was nice and awesome , faith (Main Character) was witty and smart she always has something to say and she never lets anyone take advandage of her :) She's a strong willed Person but May i add this isn't so much a love story but later on it makes her stronger to make a love story..Though i DO HATE that she technically has a human boyfriend but he isn't mentioned much AT ALL only a few times and he seems like a nice guy..but i do like that she's one of the boys at the ranch it's really cool and she has such a good realationship with her brothers and Marc.
Once again i may for warn for some sexual scenes..
Overall i love this book.

I'm on my dad's account so sorry for the name haha..

I really liked this book at first it was really intresting but some of the things got reapeated and it got boring...the end was semi good though at some points i wish Aslin and kennane were together..

at the end it only really talked about Donia being the winter queen which was kind of sucky , i wanted to learn more about Aslin being summer queen not Donia the story is about her..
It's quite annyoing.
