Okay, not really, but it’s time for another book review!

Laura Whitcomb’s A Certain Slant of Light is positively a ghost story that’s worth reading. It follows Helen, a specter who died long ago, although she can’t seem to remember how. Helen latches onto people who tie her to the world, following them throughout their lives, until she comes across a student who can actually see her—something that no one else seems to be able to do. Turns out there’s something different about this student, but I won’t reveal what that special something is. Whitcomb takes us on a journey to uncover cover what the hell is going on before the truth is finally revealed at the end. It’s a pretty fun ride, in my opinion, and definitely a worthwhile read. The social commentary is, of course, poignant and very relevant to our generation. I will warn you, it can get a bit slow at times, but if you stick with it, you’ll be glad you did. Plus, ghosts are awesome! So sit down with a copy of Whitcomb’s book ASAP and prepare for some awesome chills and a wee bit of mystery!
