What if your last kiss was with the wrong boy?
Cassidy Haines remembers her first kiss vividly. It was on the old covered bridge the summer before her freshman year with her boyfriend of three years, Ethan Keys. But her last kiss--the one she shared with someone at her seventeenth birthday party the night she died--is a blur. Cassidy is trapped in the living world, not only mourning the loss of her human body, but left with the grim suspicion that her untimely death wasn't a suicide as everyone assumes. She can't remember anything from the weeks leading up to her birthday and she's worried that she may have betrayed her boyfriend.
If Cassidy is to uncover the truth about that fateful night and make amends with the only boy she'll ever love, she must face her past and all the decisions she made--good and bad--that led to her last kiss.
Bethany Neal's suspenseful debut novel is about the power of first love and the haunting lies that threaten to tear it apart.
I liked Cassidy. She’s an outgoing girl that made a few mistakes. There were times I wanted to knock her upside the head, but she took being a ghostly being pretty well. I like that she cares for her friends. She is always trying to console them even when they have been total jerks. I don’t agree with how she handled some things, but those are incidents you learn with age. She doesn’t really have much of that left anymore. :p I also like how determined some of her friends were that Cassidy’s death wasn’t a suicide.
I loved how Cassidy was a part of discovering what really happened to her. She fought for the information, and dealt with the consequences. I had an idea about who might have done it, but I wasn’t sure. The ending was great, and I loved every second of this ride. It was fun, mysterious, and enjoyable.
