Sixteen-year-old Jamie McGuiness’s sister is dead.
Sinking into a deep depression, he frequents the lighthouse where her body was discovered, unaware of the sinister forces surrounding him.
When an angry spirit latches onto Jamie, he’s led down a dark and twisted path, one that uncovers old family secrets, destroying everything Jamie ever believed in.
Caught between the world of the living and the vengeful dead, Jamie fights the pull of the other side. It’s up to Jamie to settle old scores or no one will rest in peace — but, first, he has to survive.
I have been waiting on this book ever since I saw the cover maybe last year I believe. I just was hoping that the book would be just as good as the cover makes it seems. I can say I was not disappointed with the story. I really loved how the author used some of the words that are used by the people of Ireland. Jamie has a rough life when his sister ends up murdered it just makes life at his home so much more worse. While visiting the lighthouse Jamie sees a ghost and when this ghost attaches herself to Jamie he will be in for a ride. As what she starts to show him will reveal just how evil his father is.
I felt for Jamie on so many levels because he tries his hardest to take care of his family while watching his mother get abused by their father and be in school. While all of this is going on he catches the eye of Claire this cute girl who he never thought would turn her head to him. We see how Jamie starts getting feelings for her while dealing with things at home yet when everything comes to light we are thrown a twist we don't see coming or at least I didn't.
I did wonder why no one stepped in to protect Jamie and his family unless it is a really small town and everyone minds their business. That was the only thing that bothered me.
