Token of Darkness By Amelia Atwater-Rhodes

Sorry it's been such a long time, school has pounded me with tons of work. Hopefully I can get back into things.

Cooper Blake is your average teenager, until he is involved in a car accident that almost claims his life. His life is in ruins as he watches his football career shatter, and his social life fall. Cooper, however, begins to experience strange things, including a mysterious girl by his side. All Cooper knows is that Samantha is a ghost, and that he is the only one that can see her. No one understands Cooper after the accident; he is no longer the man he once was. That is until Cooper talks to Delilah, one of the most popular students in the school. He learns that she has her own ability, the ability to see ghosts. He also meets Brent, a loner who seems to have his own secrets. With their help, Cooper uncovers secrets that make him realize that Samantha is not all that she seems to be.

Wow. That is all I can say about this book. Amelia Atwater-Rhodes’ writing has a way of sinking its teeth into you and talking you along for a ride. At times in the book, I actually felt bad for Cooper, going through such an experience with no one to help him. I felt his pain as describe in the pages of the book. Samantha did have a tendency to annoy me but it was understandable under the conditions she was put. My favorite character would have to be Brent though. For me, he seemed like the unexpected hero. He was funny and yet knew that he had a responsibility. Over all, I loved this book. I recommend it to everyone.
