Wren loves Danny. More than she ever thought possible. So, when Danny dies in a car accident, Wren does the only thing she can think of; she brings him back from the dead. But this Danny is different—cold and stiff. Wren has to keep Danny hidden from the world, a feat that is wearing on her day by day. Then, she meets Gabriel. He seems interested in her.  But, he also knows, somehow, he knows. Now Wren has to do the right thing, but she’s not even sure what that is.

This book was absolutely amazing!  I could not put it down. I wanted the real world to fade away so I could stay in the world Garvey created. The characters were so well written that I felt an almost palpable connection to them. Garvey is able to capture Wren’s emotions—the guilt, the sadness and the longing—so poignantly that I could nearly feel the pain of those emotions myself.  Even the secondary characters, those not so vital to the story like Geoff and Trevor, are well-rounded and intriguing.  Garvey was able to create characters I cared about and liked, something that is not always easy to do.  The story was wonderful, very original and thought-provoking. While this is a young adult, paranormal book, it is not the typical storyline those who read the YA genre have become accustomed to.  I loved that about this book. Who am I kidding? 

I loved everything about this book. This is a definite must read! I will be buying this book for my girls when it comes out!
