Amelia—still caught between life and death—must fight for every moment of her relationship with the human boy Joshua. They can hardly even kiss without Amelia accidentally dematerializing. Looking for answers, they go to visit some of Joshua’s Seer relatives in New Orleans. But even in a city so famously steeped in the supernatural, Amelia ends up with more questions than answers…and becomes increasingly convinced that she and Joshua can never have a future together.
Wandering through the French Quarter, Amelia meets other in-between ghosts, and begins to seriously consider joining them. And then she meets Gabrielle. Somehow, against impossible odds, Gaby has found a way to live a sort of half-life...a half-life for which Amelia would pay any price. Torn between two worlds, Amelia must choose carefully, before the evil spirits of the netherworld choose for her.
Character Word Associations: Joshua!
What is the first thing that comes to mind for each, Joshua?
Amelia, of course
Jillian. As if anyone wants to read her tweets about what she had for breakfast, right?
Kind of my love life, right now
Freedom and peace: two things Amelia and I don't really have right now
Everything. It seems like everything we do or say could hurt one of us
Home. I don't think I'd want to live somewhere you can't see mountains
Just people, except a little different. Not necessarily something to fear.
No thanks. Now, sunflower seeds - those are the snacks of the gods
Have you seen Amelia's glow? Kind of super hero-like, if you ask me
Something I wish Amelia could try. She'll be missing out, when we go to New Orleans this Christmas...
