The last time seventeen-year-old Amelia Mackenzie saw her best friend Matthew alive, he broke her heart. When he is found the next day in an abandoned barn at the edge of town, an apparent suicide, Amelia's whole world comes crashing down.
     And then she sees him again. Because Amelia has a secret that even Matthew didn't know: sometimes, she sees ghosts.
     When a local history columnist named Morris Dyson contacts Amelia after the funeral and tells her that he thinks the barn Matthew died in is haunted, and that Matthew wasn't its first victim, an unlikely partnership is born. With Amelia's gift for seeing ghosts, Morris's radical theories on the supernatural, and a bit of help from Morris's sexy but skeptical son, Kip, a mystery unfolds. One by one, the barn's other ghostly residents are revealed: all innocent, love-struck young men who've died horrific deaths, seemingly by their own hands.
     Life and death couldn't get more complicated as Amelia is torn between her devotion to the ghostly Matthew and her growing attraction to Kip, who may not believe in ghosts but can't help believing in Amelia. When she's confronted with a rivalry between the living and the dead, which side of the great divide will Amelia choose?
     Apparition is a fast-paced supernatural mystery about memory and obsession, bodies and spirits, love and loss.

Appariton had my sitting on the edge of my seat. I couldn't put it down! I really enjoy the supernatural part of it and the part of where shes trying to keep it a secret that she is secretly visit the haunted barn and shes also trying to keep the secret from her grandmother that she has the capability to communicate to the dead. I was really anticipating the parts where she saw the ghosts and she trys to communicate and get their side of things.

It's a book that I would definitely read over and over again, even thought I am usually into mystical and magical books.
