After seventeen-year-old Paige Wheeler dies in a freak accident, she can't figure out why her spirit is bound to the grounds of her high school. But when she discovers that she can possess the bodies of anyone thinking about her, she learns all her classmates think her death was intentional; a suicide. Paige is determined to prove her death was real, but that's hard to do when you don't exist. And even though Paige is certain she didn't want to die, why can't she remember anything about her fall?

“Amazing book!”

This book is absolutely amazing! I could hardly put it down and read it in about 2 or 3 days. It was smaller than I thought but a brilliant story with plenty of twists!
