The summer Iris turns fourteen is sure to be hot and boring, just like every other summer in Ondine, Louisiana.

But Iris is in for a shock. Her life becomes a spooky story. A ghost starts to haunt Iris and she's sure that it's Elijah, a teenager who disappeared years before she was born.

What happened to Elijah, and why is he now a ghost?

This is a cute story. I would say it's mostly innocent, until you get to the end.

The mystery in SHADOWED SUMMER was great. I pretty much figured out what happened to Elijah by the time I got to the end, but I definitely didn't predict the "why." I really enjoyed the way the author wrote the story. She used southern language that made it seem very real.

This was a quick, fun read.
