This was read by my 12 yo daughter. She was really disappointed with it. She said there's no story... no plot... no problem. If you want to read a "way better" (her words), she recommends BREATHE by Cliff McNish.

When his mother forces him to move with her to a new house, Evan Calhoun doesn't expect much. Sure, he'll have to move all his stuff, but he'll still go to the same school and have the same friends. Little does he know that there's a spirit occupying his new room, a spirit who will mistake him for her dead lover and change his life forever.

BEATING HEART was really interesting, and my favorite part was the way the story is told. The point of view alternates between Evan and the ghost, and the ghost speaks in beautiful verse fragments that definitely make the book worth reading.

I read the review of this book and thought it would be a good story to read. It has been a while since I have read a YA book and I usually enjoy them. I did like this book, however I was shocked that a YA book talked so freely and openly about teen sex and treated the subject so casually. It became the focus of the book, I believe. I was hoping for a more detailed story about something other than 2 teens having sex.
