I must reveal up front that I've reviewed some of this author's previous books and received from her an eBook review copy in June, just before publication, but have only gotten to read it while on holidays last month.

I am somewhat bemused by the classification of the book on Amazon as "Horror -> Occult". I can see the alternative options of Fantasy, Paranormal & Urban, and even a broad definition of "Occult" if you think that means ghosts, but "Horror", never. There is nothing scary in this story, apart from the real world secrets that the three main characters hold. There is no need to invent demons with the evil that men do.

The pacing of the novel is reasonably slow, but very smooth, as the reader comes to learn what secrets that Celeste and Weronika, and Celestes' brother, hold. As Celeste gradually learns that she can see and talk to ghosts, and there is a pretty big reveal in her home life near the end of the book too, and comes to want to help them move on, she is able to grow and move on herself.

I'd recommend this to teens (and adults) who are looking for a very well crafted mystery, where the true story is about personal growth and coming to terms with the past. ( )
