Glimmer by Phoebe Kitanidis - OPTIONAL

Kitanidis, Phoebe Glimmer, 344 pgs. Blazer + Bray, 2012. $17.99. Language R (83 swears, 6 "F's"), Sexual Content PG-13; Violence PG-13; 

When you wake up next to someone of the opposite sex naked with absolutely no memory of how you two came to be in that situation, you are going to flip out. Well this was exactly how Marshall and Elyse felt when they came to find themselves in that exact situation. Their fear doubles when they come to find themselves in a strange town where nothing is exactly right. When there are ghosts everywhere and when the living people don't ever retain their unhappy memories, Marshall and Elyse turn to each other and fall into a very intense relationship. But when they are the only ones able to save this town will they be able to or will their love flicker and fade? 

I loved this book! Right from the beginning I was hooked. I really liked how different of a story it was with the ghosts and people glimmering and loosing all of their bad memories. I loved the relationship of Marshall and Elyse and the way it was able to save this town.
