I borrowed this book from my local library after reading about it here on PBS.  I have to say that I LOVED this book!

It was very fast read, great story and thought provoking.  Anyone else read it yet?

This is one of those books I could read several times over the years.

I loved it!  I read it in one night and was sad to finish it.

I really liked it too!  Different from what I was expecting, but very good.  I listened to the audio, and the narrator was perfect for the job.

I started this thread quite awhile back, and I still believe it is a great book. 

I realized that since I have read it, it hasn't left me.  I find myself thinking about how the girl (ghost) in the story would be next to people and they wouldn't know that she was there.  Kind of an eerie feeling when you think of it that way! 

Anyways, I still recommend this book, and I am ready to read it again.  I didn't realize after thinking about it over and over, just how thought provoking it is!!! hahah

I haven't readt it yet. It's somewhere in my massive TBR pile at the moment, though. Hoping to get to it sometime next month.
