Waiting on Wednesday 18 - Shade

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking The Spine. This week's choice is:

Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready - Release Date: May 6, 2010
Love ties them together. Death can't tear them apart.

Best. Birthday. Ever. At least, it was supposed to be. With Logan's band playing a critical gig and Aura's plans for an intimate after-party, Aura knows it will be the most memorable night of her boyfriend's life. She never thought it would be his last.

Logan's sudden death leaves Aura devastated. He's gone.

Well, sort of.

Like everyone born after the Shift, Aura can see and hear ghosts. This mysterious ability has always been annoying, and Aura had wanted nothing more than to figure out why the Shift happened so she can undo it. But not with Logan's violet-hued spirit still hanging around. Because dead Logan is almost as real as ever. Almost.

It doesn't help that Aura's new friend Zachary is so understanding--and so very alive. His support means more to Aura than she cares to admit.

As Aura's relationships with the dead and the living grow ever complicated, so do her feelings for Logan and Zachary. Each holds a piece of Aura's heart...and clues to the secret of the Shift.


I'm fascinated by the idea behind this book. It's like dystopian, but not. I want to know what the Shift is. I've had this book on my wishlist since last April. Can't wait to finally read it!

This is Jeri Smith-Ready's debut YA novel. She's written several adult Urban Fantasy books. Shade is on my debut authors challenge list. Is it on yours?
