Ghostly Friends

Wraith by Angel Lawson is a Young Adult paranormal novel. I was happy to note that it is Book One of a series; I have not had good experiences when I jumped into the middle of a series. The mobi edition has an intriguing cover which immediately catches the eye. The next attractive feature that appears immediately is the author’s writing style. The protagonist, Jane takes the reader into the middle of chapter three before we find out that the main protagonist and narrator is named Jane. Before a reader receives this knowledge, we have already met Evan, a ghost, Conner, a mysterious “bad boy,” Ava, Jane’s best friend, her parents, and several of Jane’s teachers. I am occasionally annoyed when the identity of the main character is not given early. Information is presented in such an interesting way throughout the first three chapters, I didn’t notice the lack of a name for the main character.
