Rose Asher believes in ghosts. She should, since she has one for a best friend: Logan, her annoying, Netflix-addicted brother, who is forever stuck at fifteen. But Rose is growing up, and when an old friend moves back to Laguna Canyon and appears in her drama class, things get complicated.
Jamie Aldridge is charming, confident, and a painful reminder of the life Rose has been missing out on since her brother’s death. She watches as Jamie easily rejoins their former friends–a group of magnificently silly theater nerds–while avoiding her so intensely that it must be deliberate.
Yet when the two of them unexpectedly cross paths, Rose learns that Jamie has a secret of his own, one that changes everything. Rose finds herself drawn back into her old life–and to Jamie. But she quickly starts to suspect that he isn’t telling her the whole truth.
All Rose knows is that it’s becoming harder to choose between the boy who makes her feel alive and the brother she isn’t ready to lose.
I love Schneider’s books! Her first two were awesome and as soon as I saw she wrote another, I bought it pronto! This one isn’t as strong as her first two, but it was still good! The premise of Rose’s brother coming back as a ghost was an interesting twist that I wasn’t expecting from Schneider. But she is the queen of emotional teen stories (the non-annoying kind) and Invisible Ghosts delivered. I loved the easy banter between the friends and they are totally the kids that I wish were at my school. I’m not gonna say much in this review (shocker!) because there isn’t much I can say without ruining the experience. As sappy as it sounds, Schneider’s books need to be felt and enjoyed. So a not annoying, feeling, story about teens . . . Boom. I would keep this book for older teens, due to some language. But I do recommend Invisible Ghosts, a very good book!
