One night, fifteen-year-old Eve wakes up to find a boy in her room: the most gorgeous, funny, exciting boy she's ever met. In fact, Jack is perfect in just about every way - except for the fact that he's a ghost.
Somehow, Eve has to find out what's happened to Jack and send him back to 1930, where he belongs. It seems an impossible task. After all, what's done is done. Or is it?
"I lie back with my eyes shut so I don't have to look at Jack and say quickly, before I can lose my nerve, 'The thing is, I think you might have been shot, and that's why you're here.' Silence. I take a quick peek. He's scratching his head with a worried expression and then he says, 'Oh dear.' And the whole thing suddenly seems so ridiculous, we both start laughing. 'I don't suppose you happen to know who shoots me?' he asks eventually. 'Look, I could have got it wrong. Somebody told me there was a murder at Rakeway Grange, that's all, and I think it must have something to do with you. But I haven't been able to find out anything about it on the internet.' 'What's the internet?' he asks, inevitably. 'Is it some sort of library?' 'OK,' I say, turning on my laptop and shuffling up so he can sit next to me on the sofa, 'welcome to my world.'"

Finished reading See You In My Dreams by Jeannie Walter yesterday. I give this one 3/5 stars. That being said the author writes very well. She definitely knows how to use words. The problem I had with this one was the amount of....blah. There were endless pages of information that did not help the story along. I found myself skipping entire pages and missing nothing. I liked the main character. She was well formed. I defintetly liked Jacks character, he was funny and realatable even though he was from a different time but sometimes I had to make myself read this one. Loved the premise. It was something different but it just needed to be hurried along. It could have been great if she she had added more action and cut out on a lot of the description and insane amount of back story!
This is a story that I thought would be an easy going kind of story. It was and is, but with a twist, its great and it keeps you involved as you have to be on your "tippee toes" as you get called back into the past and the future as the story goes. The Author has intertiwined it excellantly with the future but also made it as a family orientated story as a teenager would be thinking I liked it, as it is now in the real world but the author also managed to involve older eras into the story which had a few Characters, great I thought, definitly worth reading .
Good young adult story. I'm not that young, but I appreciate the choices the author made to not go too far or too detailed. I like a simple, clean story for a change. Maybe younger readers will begin to appreciate times and places other than their own, the confused and often damaging "now". The side story of the starving sister is a good topic.
