Hereafter  - Tara Hudson This is a beautiful tale of a girl called Amelia.
She is a ghost, and she is trapped in the living world; screaming at people who go by, but no one can see or hear her.
Until one fatal accident with a boy called Joshua. He has a near-death experience in the water, and Amelia saves him. After that, Joshua can see Amelia and is curious about her.
Throughout this story, Amelia embarks upon an adventure in finding about herself, her family, her background, and everything else about her.
However, there is someone else just like Amelia, and they want her. They want her to work along side them.
Not only that, but Joshua's grandmother isn't all that she seems...

I really liked this story.
The writing style is one that I'm comfortable with.
The only criticism I'd have with the story is the connection between Amelia and Joshua. I felt like there was something a little off. It started off sweet, but they fell for each other WAY too fast for my liking, and that put me off. It just didn't make it as believable.
I dislike it in stories when people fall too fast and admit those three words too early. I like seeing relationships blossom slowly. I can understand that what those two characters had was lust, not love.
Other than that, it was a great read and I enjoyed the book =)
