One year following their deaths in a late-night car accident, teenagers Danielle, Marco, and Christopher return, in spirit, to the sleepy New England suburb of Avon. Over the course of the evening, the three will drift into and out of the lives of those who knew and were affected by them. None is more affected than Tim, survivor of the crash, who plots a grisly act of remembrance, and Brooks, the well-intentioned police officer who first discovered the crash and whose life has changed in startling ways since.

Read this one for Halloween. Narrated by a teenage ghost. Creepy, funny, and sad, O'Nan can pull it off.

This one had parts that were really funny. Stewart O'Nan really knows how teens think and talk and his characters are really memorable. Interesting idea too, having them as ghosts hanging around after a car crash, hope I'm not giving too much away. It is a tragic story but this author makes it wonderful and not at all a downer but a story with really important lessons.
