I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, thank you!
Richard was just six years when his best friend, Melanie, disappeared. Her body was never found. Ever since, Richard has had company from a shadow. But then, after then years a new girl at school claims she's his Melanie. Richard doesn't know what to believe, and if she's Melanie, then who's haunting him?
This was a very quick read. I read the last over 200 pages in a few hours when I also did a lot of other things. At first I was not sure what to think about the story. The beginning is a bit weird and I didn't know what to expect. But after the first pages that feeling disappeared and I really quite enjoyed myself reading the story.
I was curious what was about to happen with Melanie, Richard and even the shadow. Some things were a bit simple though. I don't think that it would have been so easy for Melanie to return after all those years, without everyone asking a lot of questions. I also was a little bit disappointed by the ending. Everything fit in a bit too neat and literally everything was somehow connected. It's just a personal thing, but I don't really like it that way. Would still recommend though, it's a nice (different) ghost story.
