The only survivor of the war is her cousin Quinn, who returns with a damaged eye, and secrets. Aunt Clara and Uncle Henry arrange to have a photo taken of the family with a spiritual photographer, in hopes that it will capture a sign from Will. At the photo session, Jennie experiences a moment where she sees Will appear, very angry. Jennie begins her quest to find out why Will is haunting her, and what secret Quinn is keeping from her about Will's death. Things are not adding up.
The end is a bit of a twist, but a great one! The pages throughout the book illustrated with pieces of letters, photos, and comments of Jennie's from her scrapbook help build the story. It's a refreshing change from the usual paranormal teen novel. I seem to have fallen into a Civil War period in my reading, so this falls neatly within those parameters.
If you've got a teen who likes lost love, a little bit of history, and a good ghost story, recommend this book. It's a quick read, and it's fun to study the illustrations and letters--they add to the story.
