In Alyson Noel's second charmer about 12 year old Riley Bloom, Shimmer, Riley's newly discovered talents are put to the test when she meets Rebecca, the ghost of a plantation owner's daughter. Rebecca's anger is trapping souls in their own angry, painful memories, and Riley and her friends, ghost guide Bhodi and golden retriever Buttercup, must find a way to free the trapped souls, and help Rebecca let go of a horrible event in her past, so she may move on to the Here & Now.

I adored Radiance, and Shimmer was just as good. I'm still amazed at Ms. Noel's ability to see through a 12 yr old's eyes and write about themes such as slavery, and the horrid things that happened during that unpleasant time in our history, while always keeping a glimmer of hope on the horizon. Shimmer was a wonderful read and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to reluctant readers. It ends with some unanswered questions that I'm sure will be resolved in the next Riley Bloom adventure, Dreamscape, coming this fall!
