Wraith by Angel Lawson

Book Description: 

Freak. Weird. Crazy.
These are the names tossed around seventeen-year old Jane Watts by her fellow classmates. But things aren’t always as they seem. Sometimes there’s a reason for talking to yourself in the hallway at school.
Adjusting to her new home and school after an abrupt move, Jane wants one thing in life—to be like everyone else at school, but that’s hard to do when you’re the new kid. Although she does manage to make one friend, Evan—he’s sixteen, charming, and protective. Everything a girl could want in a best friend…with one minor caveat.
He’s dead.
Caught somewhere between life and death, Evan is tied to Jane and the living world unable to complete the journey to the other side. She thinks he’s here to be her friend, to take care of her, and that’s why no one can see or hear him.
That is until a new boy shows up at school after a rumored stretch in Juvie. Connor can see Evan and he’s not convinced the ghost is being completely honest. From his own experience ghosts tend to need something from the humans they connect to and Evan, despite his arguments isn’t any different.
Jane is resentful of Connor’s intrusion but realizes soon enough he’s right. Evan has secrets about his past and not only did his life end tragically but members of his family are still in danger. Jane must face her fears and battle Evan’s human demons to free both of them.

Christina's BookReview

I have to start off by saying that I adored this book!

I wasn't sure what to expect at first but once I started reading I could not stop. 

Wraith starts off with Jane and Evan. Jane is the "freak" of the school and is treated as such because of her behavior and friendship with Evan. Why is their a problem with there friendship? Simple answer. Evan is not alive, he is a wraith or a ghost. Jane doesn't mind what goes on around her because Evan is there for her and comforts her whenever she is upset. The problem is that Evan hasn't moved on. He's stuck in the in-between and doesn't know how to move on. That is until Connor walks into Jane's life. 

Connor is not normal either. He is a "medium" and has not dealt with a ghost like Evan before. When he notices that Jane is being followed by Evan he warns her that she needs to be careful. A warning that Jane laughs off because Evan is her best friend and has taken care of her. After Jane uncovers the mystery behind Evans death she turns to the one person that has been warning her something was wrong. Together Connor and Jane try to help Evan move on by completing his "unfinished" business on earth.

I enjoyed the plot of this book and enjoyed getting to know about Evans, Jane's and Connors stories. Just like Jane you get attached to Evan and feel that pain of his story through the whole book. He truly was a good friend to Jane and in the end I wish that he didn't have to go away. I'm glad that Jane began to trust Connor and let him help her. You couldn't help but be sadden by Connor's story as well. I adored his protectiveness over Jane and his constant push to get her to trust him. 

If you are looking for a good ghost story and paranormal romance this is the book for you! I loved loved this book and think other would enjoy it as well!
