Greg has lived in Lancaster his whole life. The town's always had its quirks, and being born without a shadow means he's counted among them. When Greg discovers an old mansion in the woods just outside of town, he didn't expect to meet a smart, beautiful, funny, and...very dead teenaged girl named Eleanor.
Yeah. He's in love with a ghost.
And before he knows what's happening, Greg finds himself at the wrong end of a history lesson when the town's past, and his own, threaten to pull the two of them apart permanently!

For the record:
1. I still LOVE First Second books. 2. I give a one star rating to all of the books that I do not finish.
Initially, I was incredibly confused about who was saying what... and then I figured out there was some unseen narrator. Maybe it was a ghost? I don't know. Because that narrator got in an argument with the characters and said s/he was disappearing for a while.
That's when I was out.
Normally, I love this type of book, but it didn't work for me this time.
