Ask me now and I’ll say this is just a place where you can’t play music or eat. The main character is 27 year old Helen who died years ago and she’s been haunting people ever since. Though we never really meet them, I grew as fond and invested in the stories of Billy and Jenny especially Jenny as Helen and James.

Aside from that, they also try to understand why they’ve been unable to move on from this world and why. In any case, I have never read anything like this before. I loved that other events interacted with their story and it wasn’t a This book is about two ghosts who fall in love.

When I looked up,it was not fear but in wonder. It may surprise you.

By the time this short volume was over, I was overjoyed. It was a haunting of a different kind; not the scary, hair-raising kind of g but a feeling of emptiness you feel right along with Helen when she thinks about all the things she misses when she was alive.

And after a while they realize that the body snatching has an impact on other people in Billy’s and Jenny’s life. Or will they finally get some peace? Jan 04, Cyndi rated it it was amazing. I read Laura Whitcomb’s book The Fetch first, and I loved it, even though entr novel is more universally loved.


I was with my teacher Mr Brown.

The writing, the prose is so very beautiful, but it is gentle. She finds out that it’s not really the student tinirblas sees her but James, the ghost inhabiting the student’s body. If anyone were to somehow manage to see me with his eyes, it would not be this sort of lad-this mere ashes-on-the-inside kind.

The story opens with Helen flitting from one host to another and the struggles she goes through with each transition. It took a few pages before the book grabbed me and then it didn’t let go.

So, just to let you know, this is actually the correct spelling in Britain. What I dislike about the book is how casually unconcerned the spirits are for the bodies they’ve taken. Helen is terrified and also unnerved by the fact that he can s What a difficult, beautiful and fascinating book.

I hear silence, like the mind of God. A Certain Slant of Light was much darker than I had anticipated. YA woman ghost who possesses people [s]. It felt wrong, not just because they are using their bodies, but they are taking whitcomg places in the real world. They have secrets that drove them away from their bodies.

A Certain Slant of Light (Light, #1) by Laura Whitcomb

It looked ce was forced too much. I didn’t like that the part about Jenny’s and Billy’s spirits wasn’t well developed. The joy of having someone to talk to after years of being utterly alone. I’d hesitated picking up this book because one of the reviews on Amazon said something about “graphic sex,” but I found that it was neither graphic nor gratuitous nor titillating.

He is also dead, tinoeblas he had found an ’empty’ human body t Helen had been dead for over years, moving between human ‘hosts’ who she follows around and lives with.


A Certain Slant of Light

Brown who holds a special place in her heart. Can we say what a lovely cover. Helen is perplexed, and as she comes to know James, the ghost who has taken hold of a boy’s body, she and James fall in love.

I’m actually surprised it’s considered YA at all.

This is a story of a Spirit, Light as named in the book. It’s also a nice touch that she takes on the body of a girl who was forced to be almost as detached from the world as Helen has been, therefore Helen’s arcane speech and formal manner are less remarkable than if she were in the body of a more typical whhitcomb.

A girl named Jenny.

I think it just got catergorized wrong at the publishing level. This book has about a billion good reviews, but I honestly don’t know why. View all 12 comments. Before Helen came along, she watched Jenny for some time as she simply went through the motions of life without exuding any sort of emotion. Helen is terrified and also unnerved by the fact that he can see her; but she also finds herself incredibly intrigued.
