An interesting mystery

This book had some good ideas, especially a young man coming to terms with his sexuality, but it felt somewhat rushed when it came to his relationship. I did enjoy the ghost element and his powers.

Weird but entertaining

A different take on Academy books with the main character as an alien from another planet, sent to observe humans. Things go well until she falls for one. A slightly weird but entertaining tale. I would recommend it
