A Certain Slant of Light (Light, #1) by Laura Whitcomb
YA fiction, years ago. Nov 15, Kristy rated it really liked it Shelves: The joy of having someone to talk to after years of being utterly alone.
This book is about two ghosts who fall in love. One was a fear of being seen by a mortal – as if beheld naked when you know you are clothed. Like a desert wanderer afraid of mirages, I gazed at my oasis, but he was real. Helen is terrified and also unnerved by the fact that he can s What a difficult, beautiful and fascinating book.
I have to admit it took me to about page to really understand and get into it, but WHAM after that it whitcom on like donkey kong!! I remember going through a mass of different emotions while reading this.
He’s not haunting people but places actually emtre place in particular and one day he sees a teenage boy, Billy Blake, whose soul has left his body, so he enters him and starts living his life as Billy. And in no time at all, I forgot the outside world existed.
I should warn you that it has some sex scenes, but they are not graphic. James was much more responsible while dealing with Billy’s life and family.

Although it’s etnre your usual ee story, or even ghost story, that you find in YA novels. Sep 26, Kat Lost in Neverland rated it liked it Shelves: As for James, he felt whifcomb like a symbol for life than a person.
They are trying to pick up the peaces of their host’s lives, while trying to come to terms with their own pasts and the reasons why they have not crossed to the other side. The writing is beautifully poetic but not florid, and the humanity of the ghost protagonist comes through qhitcomb clearly it was easy to identify with her pain and desires.
While it’s plain to see this book delved deeper into the heart of human emotion than most young-adult books, Whitcomb’s execution of the storyline unsettled me. She’s not a child and she’s been around for years, so she should be able to act more grown up about some things especially about what happened to Mr. They are adults, with adult feelings, out of their own time but confined to young bodies, which has serious repercussions as the story unfolds.
The main character is 27 year old Helen who died years ago and she’s been haunting people ever since. What’s the Name o Jan 25, Karla rated it it was amazing. The suddenness of the physical relationship between Helen and James surprised me, though, as until that point everything had unfolded very slowly and naturally.
What the story lacks in depth is counter-balanced by enough general spirituality and lyrical, sensuous prose to make the novel a satisfying, enjoyable read. There was so much going on – Helen and James’s past lives and their struggle to fit into modern society, Jenny and Billy’s current lives, the spiritual side of the story, etc.
I didn’t love every character or every relationship or every situation. I also loved the poetic and dark aspect of the story. She is on her fifth host, an English teacher named Mr. For some reason the student’s spirit had chosen to leave his body, but the body hadn’t died.

And I loved that. Books by Laura Whitcomb.

The audio book is published by Listening Library. Whitcomb’s writing is beautiful and the book is beautiful, it has so many layers This is the story of two ghosts who have been haunting people and places for decades, alone, without knowing why they were stuck on earth.
The depth of feeling SM failed to achieve in pages I don’t think I would have read this book if it wasn’t recommended to me. I’m a little worried it won’t be as good as Certain Slant.
