Aimee and Alan have secrets. Both teens have unusual pasts and abilities they prefer to keep hidden. But when they meet each other, in a cold Maine town, they can't stop their secrets from spilling out. Strange things have been happening lately, and they both feel that something-or someone- is haunting them. They're wrong. Despite their unusual history and powers, it's neither Aimee nor Alan who is truly haunted. It's Alan's cousin Courtney who, in a desperate plea to find her missing father, has invited a demon into her life-and into her body. Only together can Aimee and Alan exorcise the ghost. And they have to move quickly, before it devours not just Courtney but everything around her.

Filled with heart-pounding romance, paranormal activity, and rich teen characters to love-and introducing an exciting new YA voice, Steven Wedel-this novel is exactly what Carrie Jones fans have been waiting for. Meet your next obsession.

I’ve been doing that just fine for the past twenty-nine and a half years before you showed up, remember?” I really enjoyed Chance and his humor although when he was talking he sometimes sounded like Bones, especially when calling people ‘luv’.

The other interesting part about the book is that one paragraph is written through Alan's eyes and the next is through Aimee's eyes, so the chapters switch back and forth between Alan and Aimee (which was a new and enjoyable twist).
