Stephanie Flynn is the author of the young adult novel Taming the Iris as well as a slew of science fiction short stories and poetry slowly being to her website. She lives in Michigan with her children and husband. When she’s not glued to her computer, she’s inhaling books about words, books about novels, books about publishing and a little bit of everything else: chick lit, horror, science fiction, fantasy, and the classics. She gravitates toward writing action and romance novels; sometimes both inside one cover, and science fiction short stories. On the odd day Michigan has warm weather, her family enjoys kayaking, biking, rollerblading, and walking in the parks.

Sixteen-year-old Iris Weber is content spending her free time reading books from her father's personal library, churning out high grades in school, and avoiding the obnoxious in-crowd. Since her brother was murdered last year, the last thing on her mind is a boyfriend, but unfortunately that's the obsession of her best friend. And not just any boyfriend—Eric, the most popular guy in school. Iris reluctantly agrees to help Natasha get Eric's attention in a haunted forest, even after warnings from the tour guide. After the vengeful spirit kills Natasha for her crime, Iris knows she's next.
Iris can't leave.
There's school and her parents.
The police are no help.
And now another nightmare to tack onto her bedroom wall—her only hope in piecing together the clues lies with the one guy she despises, Eric, her best friend's crush.
Figuring out the deadly pattern, Iris chooses to team up with the class favorite to fight for her life and for her best friend. The only thing she can't fight, much to her dismay, is her growing desire for Eric.

I would have liked to have seen more insight and depth into Iris's character. The multiple point of views distracted from getting a good connection with her. I feel like the point of view should have been first person, in Iris's POV. I also would have liked to have a little more background on her brother's story and possibly tie that incident in with the plot. I was waiting for it to tie in somehow, but then just wondered why it was included in the story but not explored or explained. Again, thinking about how Iris was affected by her brother's death, I really regret not having more insight into that aspect of the story. Without giving away any plot twists, I will say that it was strange how everyone reacted to what happened with Natasha, almost nonchalant after the initial discovery and mostly how Eric and Iris developed a relationship.
Best creepy cute book ever
