A Certain Slant of Light is the story of a ghost who attaches herself to human hosts to avoid going to what she assumes is hell, for a crime she does not remember. While attached to her current host -- a high school english teacher -- she realizes that a boy in the classroom can see her. She eventually learns he too was once a ghost, and is now inhabiting the body of an overdose victim. This begins their romance and her realization of herself. I liked this book for its breezy style and interesting premise, which was handled nicely and thoughtfully. I wasnt too pleased with the heavy-handedness of the religious aspect at the end, but overall would recommend this as a fun, somewhat thought provoking read, with the caution to parents that there is sexuality in the book, and a not always pleasant view on religion (for those of you whom that concerns).
