Inhaltsangabe

Someone was looking at me, a disturbing sensation if you’re dead. Though I could not feel paper between my fingers, smell ink, or taste the tip of a pencil, I could see and hear the world with all the clarity of the Living. They, on the other hand, did not see me as a shadow or a floating vapor. To the Quick, I was empty air.

Or so I thought. In the class of the high school English teacher she has been haunting, Helen feels them: For the first time in 130 years, human eyes are looking at her. They belong to a boy, a boy who has not seemed remarkable until now. And Helen - terrified, but intrigued - is drawn to him. The fact that he is in a body and she is not presents this unlikely couple with their first challenge. But as the lovers struggle to find a way to be together, they begin to discover the secrets of their former lives and of the young people they come to possess.

Kritikerstimmen

"The author's poetic prose, capturing the spirit and sorrow of the two unearthly protagonists, will likely have a mesmerizing effect." (Publishers Weekly)
"Whitcomb writes with a grace that befits Helen's more modulated world while depicting contemporary society with sharp insight." (School Library Journal)

Highly unusual book

I picked this book for its interesting storyline. I was starting to get a bit worried when I heard the introduction as "Audible Kids", and during the first 40 minutes or so, I thought, okay, I now understand the storyline, what more can happen?! And more did happen, what a great love story between two (adult) souls temporarily occupying two teenagers' bodies, and obviously enjoying to be young and alive again. It was well written, original, and especially well read (I loved Lauren Molina's sweet voice, very suitable). The flashbacks eventually revealed details of Helen's previous life and death. I can recommend this as a highly unusual love story, not just for teenagers!

Eine schöne Geschichte.

Im ersten Drittel dachte ich, dass das Buch nicht mehr als 3 Sterne verdient. Aber mit jedem Kapitel wurde es besser.
Die letzten wären 5 Sterne wert gewesen.

Was mir gar nicht gefallen hat, war die Vorleserin.
Erstens hat sie immer gelesen als würde sie flüstern. und zweitens hat sie bei Wörtern die auf -ing enden das g verschluckt. Also statt z.B. reading, readin oder hearing, hearin. Und zwar nicht nur genuschelt sondern als würde es den Buchstaben g gar nicht geben.
