An aside – Wraith, by Angel Lawson

The cover of Wraith by Angel LawsonI have a friend (Angel Lawson) who has published her first novel, Wraith, which is available for the Kindle over at Amazon. Paperback options are forthcoming. I’m  ridiculously excited for her and want to support her in this.

Because I know Angel and think she’s awesome, I don’t feel like I can be an objective reviewer… so I’ll just say that I really, really like the characters, the story, and the whole feel of Wraith and tell you to go check it out to see it it’s something you might like, too.

Here is the blurb:

Freak. Weird. Crazy. These are the names tossed around seventeen-year old Jane Watts by her fellow classmates. But things aren’t always as they seem. Sometimes there’s a reason for talking to yourself in the hallway at school.

Adjusting to her new home and school after an abrupt move, Jane wants one thing in life—to be like everyone else at school, but that’s hard to do when you’re the new kid. Although she does manage to make one friend, Evan—he’s sixteen, charming, and protective. Everything a girl could want in a best friend…with one minor caveat.

He’s dead.

Caught somewhere between life and death, Evan is tied to Jane and the living world unable to complete the journey to the other side. She thinks he’s here to be her friend, to take care of her, and that’s why no one can see or hear him.

That is until a new boy shows up at school after a rumored stretch in Juvie. Connor can see Evan and he’s not convinced the ghost is being completely honest. From his own experience ghosts tend to need something from the humans they connect to and Evan, despite his arguments isn’t any different.

Jane is resentful of Connor’s intrusion but realizes soon enough he’s right. Evan has secrets about his past and not only did his life end tragically but members of his family are still in danger. Jane must face her fears and battle Evan’s human demons to free both of them.

    Okay, I read the teaser chapter and really liked it! Pondering getting in for my Kindle app on my phone but might wait for the paperback because then Rachel might read it, too.

    Also… teaser chapters are the debil. *nod*
