This was a book that at first I thought, okay, this is a ghost story. Then all of a sudden, it seemed to be a ghost/time travel story! But there were a few parts where there was like this alternate reality, and Alessa was dreaming about it. So then I thought maybe it was something even different. And it was. Turns out it is a dystopian society, and you learn this through bits and pieces of the "ghost"/"time travel" story that is going on. I like how it all ties in so well. All of it worked okay in my opinion. And each little odd thing that happened made you think as you were reading it. It kept you guessing right up till the end. Now, I'm not sure exactly where the next book will be going, but it will be interesting to see. I definitely recommend this book!
