*****5 Star

Riley Bloom left her sister Ever in the world of the living and crossed the bridge into the afterlife, a place called Here were the time is always Now. Riley and her dog Buttercup have been reunited with her parents  and are just settling into a nice relaxing death when she's summoned before the council. They let her in on a secret, the afterlife isn't just an eternity of leisure, Riley has to work. She's been assigned a job Soul Catcher, and a teacher Bodhi, a curious boy she can't quite figure out.
Riley, Bodhi, and Buttercup return to earth for her first assignment, a Radiant Boy who's been haunting a castle in England for centuries. Many Soul Catchers have tried to get him to cross the bridge and failed.
But all that was before he met Riley...

I really liked this book, it had a significant lesson hidden in its pages, my favorite character was Bodhi, he was funny, trying to act like a nerd and all. I can't tell you why or what seems off about him to Riley but I can tell you this is a MUST Read. Its one of those nice short book you can curl up with at any time you want and read in one sitting. I recommend this for all ages, its sad but happy at the same time so get up off your computer and go buy this 178 page book, you'll be glad you did.
