A Certain Slant of Light (Light #1) by Laura Whitcomb
Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal, Romance
My Rating: 4 red hearts
In the class of the high school English teacher she has been haunting, Helen feels them: for the first time in 130 years, human eyes are looking at her. They belong to a boy, a boy who has not seemed remarkable until now. And Helen—terrified, but intrigued—is drawn to him. The fact that he is in a body and she is not presents this unlikely couple with their first challenge. But as the lovers struggle to find a way to be together, they begin to discover the secrets of their former lives and of the young people they come to possess.
Given the lyrical prose, I think this novel would fit just as easily in the adult readers section as the YA shelves. Helen, like all of us, is just trying to find her place in the world. Supernaturally lovely!
