Review: Wraith by Edie Claire

She thought that seeing the shadows was a curse. Until she saw him. 

Seventeen-year-old Kali has always seen two sets of people: those living now, and those who lived before. But on her spring break in Hawaii, she is suddenly surrounded by more shadows than ever. Including one who, unlike the others, can see her too. 

Zane remembers nothing besides surfing the monster waves of Oahu's North Shore. He doesn't even know how, or when, he died. He only knows that Kali's "gift" could be his last chance to find the light--before the mysteries of his past plunge them both into darkness… 


Let me start by saying that this book needs to be read by lots more people!! I was really surprised by the lack of reviews that it has on Goodreads. This book is so incredibly awesome!! I loved absolutely every minute that I spent reading this!! It was a book that kept me up long into the early hours of the morning reading it!! I simply couldn't put it down!!

Wraith is told from the point of view of Kali, who is in Hawaii with her parents looking for a house so that they can relocate. She has always seen the 'shadows'. Those who have died. But none have been able to see her... Or talk to her... Until Zane. Zane has no memory of how or when he died. But Kali, with the help of her 'gift' is going to help him remember and help him move towards the light.

I loved Kali and Zane. Kali's spunk and Zane's enthusiasm, sense of humour and energy were infectious!! They were so good together!! And then throw in Mark who is just so sweet, you can't help but like him!!

“Zane," I whispered breathlessly, knowing it was wrong, but powerless to stop myself. "If things were different... if you were alive... and I was alive-" "Yes," he said immediately, interrupting me. He leaned in closer. His voice was no more than a whisper. "Absolutely, yes. Don't ever doubt it, Kali.” 

Edie Claire has written a number of books before and it shows in her writing. However this is her first YA book and I certainly hope that she delves into this genre more because she is so incredibly good at it!! Her writing style is so easy to read.

I urge you all to read this book. I would love nothing more than for the author to write a sequel. And I have no doubt that once you read Wraith, you will all feel the same!!

Without a doubt a massive 5/5
