Mini Review: Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready

Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready

Publisher: Simon Pulse (May 4, 2010)
Length: 320 pages
Format: Hardcover

Summary from Amazon:
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.

Some parts I really really liked and some parts I just liked, but I did enjoy this book. It takes ghost seeing to a whole different level. Seeing ghosts, it's NORMAL!  I love the story between Aura and Zachary. For some reason, I don't like Logan. I feel that he is just holding Aura back from life. She ends up lying to her family because of him. With Zachary, Aura can be a normal girl and have a somewhat normal life ( i say somewhat because government people watching you isn't really normal but more so than ghost, i think). 

4/5 stars.
