REVIEW: Shift by Jeri Smith-Ready

Product Description

Aura’s life is anything but easy. Her boyfriend, Logan, died, and his slides between ghost and shade have left her reeling. Aura knows he needs her now more than ever. She loves Logan, but she can’t deny her connection with the totally supportive, totally gorgeous Zachary. And she’s not sure that she wants to. Logan and Zachary will fight to be the one by her side, but Aura needs them both to uncover the mystery of her past—the mystery of the Shift.
As Aura’s search uncovers new truths, she must decide whom to trust with her secrets…and her heart.

You know how a song gets stuck in your head?  Well, this completely happened with this book since I am still thinking about it.  Just to warn you, as soon as you finish it, you will want another one and yes, it ends with a bit of a cliffhanger so just be prepared to sit, tap your fingers and start to stalk the author asking her when the next book is coming out. So now I am going to try and write a spoiler free review. 

Aura is in the middle of a triangle between Logan, who came back from Shade and is now just Ghost and Zachary, who she is spending more time with because of a school commitment.  She finds herself really dwelling on Zachary more and more and how his history intertwines with her own.  Together with the help of a teacher, they start to uncover their own beginnings.  Logan has a spectacular send off, but is he really and truly gone?  I never thought it was possible for a ghost to grow up, but Logan accomplishes that towards the end of the book.  So, I am going to make you read the book to get the answers, but it is well worth it.
