3.5 stars probably. This was a very fun read for me. I had just read some interesting blogs about the creepy stalkerish vibes that most relationships in YA novels contain, and I picked this up and was treated to a nice normal romance. The two main characters grew up best friends, and this book covers the evolution of their relationship into something more, very sweet.Meanwhile, the girl finds herself able to sense the bodies of people that have been murdered, and winds up involved in tracking down a serial killer. This is one of the most compelling murder mysteries I've ever read in a YA novel I think.Overall, I highly recommend this. If nothing else, its a nice break from the usual intense relationships of YA fantasy.
