Summary (From Publisher):
A Resurrection Spell Gone Wrong
Two months after dying, Gray wakes up in Charlene’s body. As a witch, can anyone
blame her mother for attempting to bring her daughter back to life? Only now
Gray’s stuck sharing her sister’s body 50/50 in twenty-four hour shifts. The
race is on for Gray to find a way back inside her own body before Charlene
purges her from existence. Raj McKenna is rumored to meddle in the black arts,
not to mention he’s after Gray’s invisibility spell and worse – her heart. But
Raj might be the only one powerful enough to save Gray from fading away forever.
This is truly a young adult book in every sense of the word. Graylee and Charlene truly act like the teenage twin sisters they are. They fight like adolescent girls over clothes and other minor woes. They tease each other. Charlene has a hard time getting over the heartbreak of a break-up. They’re typical teenage girls.
Except for the witch part. Charlene can float and Graylee can turn invisible. Pretty cool stuff. Even Raj can freeze people in their tracks. In that way they’re not so typical.
Then you have the evil twin part of the plot. Charlene is hell bent on purging Graylee from her body after a resurrection spell goes wrong. Basically obliterating her existence. It sounds corny but it works for this book. In fact the whole book got in touch with my inner sixteen-year-old that I never knew existed even when I was sixteen.
The romance between Raj and Graylee was sweet. Sweet as only romances between two teenagers can be. It evolved naturally and that was nice to see.
Raj was an interesting character. He had a lot of depth and emotion to him. I think he was my favorite. His tenderness towards Graylee was touching.
Graylee acted like a typical teenager. She made mistakes that a teenager would make but was remarkable in her own way. Graylee engendered sympathy for her plight as the book wore on as she was so obviously the victim.
It was a cute and fun book. I recommend it to anyone who’s looking for a good light-hearted read.
