Waiting on Wednesday: Shade

Waiting on Wednesday Meme was started by Jill over at Breaking The Spine. It spots upcoming releases that we want to read.

Jessica's pick is Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready due out May 4, 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.


  1. glad you're participating!

  2. sounds interesting....although it almost seems like every other YA book out there at the moment. Hopefully things will be a little different in this book.

  3. I like how everyone born after "the shift" can see and hear ghosts, instead of just one person being haunted. Gives it a different twist for me. - Jessica
