I wasn't surprised with this book at all. None of the twists were surprising at all and it ended up turning into a book that I went through as quick as I could just to get it over with. I didn't like the characters or the ghost aspects or even the killer shadow. I felt that everything could have been more interesting but it just fell flat for me.
I did not like Jane, she was boring and annoying. She was constantly getting on my nerves because she got annoyed that her parents were keeping such a close eye on her. I honestly can't blame them she's come close to dying numerous times and every single time the damage looks like it was self inflicted. So I'm sorry if I don't sympathize with your frustration because your parents are afraid that something is going to happen to you. Don't even get me started on her best friend Lexi. She was just as annoying as Jane, if not more. She was supposed to be creepy and odd but I just found her character to be dull and boring. It was like her personality wasn't completely fleshed out and that is something that really bothers me.
Overall, this book was a bust for me. I was expecting a quick paced, creepy mystery and what I got instead was a book that bored me to tears and I couldn't wait for it to end. If you like ghost stories but aren't into ones that make it so you can't sleep then maybe this one is for you. I on the other hand like books that have me lying awake, thinking about what may or may not be in the dark.
