I know it might sound like really faint praise, but this is a really nice book, despite having pretty high stakes. I thought I picked up a completely different book when I started reading this, so everything that happened came as a surprise. The things that I liked:
- The depiction of teenagers
- The depiction of a mother/son relationship in a fraught situation (it wasn't pleasant, but it was believable, at least to me)
- The writing style
- The structure of the book, especially the history sequences
- The atmosphere
- That there was no real romance-based drama in the story, in stead having the background relationship simply be a source of strength
- The take on stories having power

The one thing this didn't do was get under my skin in an emotional way, but everything else made up for that.

Adam McCormick acababa de cumplir quince años cuando el cadáver fue encontrado en el bosque. Así comienza el otoño que cambiará su vida para siempre. Jamie Marks era un chico muy parecido a Adam, un chico al que nadie prestaba demasiada atención; un chico al que casi nadie iba a echar de menos. Es entonces cuando, por primera vez, Adam siente que tiene un objetivo. Ahora más que nunca, Jamie necesita un amigo. Pero mientras Adam siga aferrado al fantasma de Jamie, su amigo seguirá atado a un mundo al que no pertenece... y los lazos que unen a Adam con la vida serán cada vez más frágiles. Para encontrar su camino de vuelta, Adam debe aprender por sí mismo el verdadero significado de estar vivo.… (mais)

Kind of 3 stars for execution of the plot: pretty straightforward problem, pretty straightforward and foreshadowed solution to which the protagonist was helped along by Jarrod, visions, his great-aunt showing him the path. Maybe a deliberate consequence of his story being told? Sort of makes me want a sequel.

4 stars for concept and feels.
