First in the HAWAIIAN SHADOWS series by USA-Today bestselling author Edie Claire!
She thought that seeing the shadows was a curse. Until she saw him.
Seventeen-year-old Kali has always seen two sets of people: those living now, and those who lived before. But on her spring break in Hawaii, she is suddenly surrounded by more shadows than ever. Including one who, unlike the others, can see her too.
Zane remembers nothing besides surfing the monster waves of Oahu's North Shore. He doesn't even know how, or when, he died. He only knows that Kali's "gift" could be his last chance to find the light -- before the mysteries of his past plunge them both into darkness.
"Zane," I whispered breathlessly, knowing it was wrong, but powerless to stop myself. "If things were different... if you were alive... and I was alive--"
"Yes," he said immediately, interrupting me. He leaned in closer. His voice was no more than a whisper. "Absolutely, yes. Don't ever doubt it, Kali..."
Reviews from the bloggers:
"WOW! Is all I can say... I loved every minute of it. It has to be one of the best YA paranormal reads I have read to date. This book is filled with heart and soul... I don't think I have actually cried over a book since I was in the 7th grade and read Where the Red Fern Grows... Really Edie... I'm begging, write more Zane and Kali!"-- Melissa Hardy, Smardy Pants Book Blog

"Despite my inclination to listen to stories intended for a more mature audience, I found myself lost and totally engrossed in Kali and Zane's story. I listened to this audiobook straight through enjoying every minute of it. Wraith is the impressive first book in the YA series Hawaiian Shadows... The writing style is very vivid -- the author not only puts you there emotionally, but also physically in a way that makes you feel the warm ocean breeze of a Hawaiian spring... A fantastic YA listen." -- Loupe Duffy, Hot Listens [From the audio version, narrated by the award-winning Tavia Gilbert]
