Jessica is about to turn 16. Having rich parents, she is used to getting what she wants. All she wants in life in a red convertible BMW and a bi party. What she gets is a paranormal visit, but what is the spirit trying to show her.
Jessica was one of the most annoying characters I have read in a long while, she was a proper little rich brat, always getting what she wants and was rude to everyone. Although do not let this put you off the story. As the story continues you get to find out about her so called “amazing life” and by the end of the story I felt sorry for her.
The story is a quick read as there is always something going on. As you follow Jessica on her paranormal journey, you are drawn in to her life and you soon come to realise what her life was really like. There is a similarity to A Christmas Carol as you get to know about her past, present and future, but she is not alone. As I have said I felt sorry for her and whilst I could not condone her attitude, I understood her. The addition of Jed and Amanda showed the true description of friendship and whilst I thought I knew where this story was going there was one revelation I did not see coming.
This is not horror as you are used to but then when A Christmas Carol came out that was also classified as horror. An enjoyable quick read
