Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready

Genre:  YA Paranormal Fantasy
Shade Trilogy, Book 1

Description (taken from Jeri Smith-Ready's website):
Best. Birthday. Ever. At least, it was supposed to be. With Logan's band playing a critical gig and Aura's plans for an intimate after-party, Aura knows it will be the most memorable night of her boyfriend's life. She never thought it would be his last.

Logan's sudden death leaves Aura devastated. He's gone.

Well, sort of.

Like everyone born after the Shift, Aura can see and hear ghosts. This mysterious ability has always been annoying, and Aura had wanted nothing more than to figure out why the Shift happened so she can undo it. But not with Logan’s violet-hued spirit still hanging around. Because dead Logan is almost as real as ever. Almost.

It doesn't help that Aura’s new friend Zachary is so understanding—and so very alive. His support means more to Aura than she cares to admit.

As Aura's relationships with the dead and the living grow ever complicated, so do her feelings for Logan and Zachary. Each holds a piece of Aura's heart…and clues to the secret of the Shift.

I believe I am enjoying this author's books.  I liked this book better than the WVMP book (it could be that this was written later).  I don't think I've read very many books regarding ghosts, but this one kept me intrigued.  I kept turning the page wanting to know more.  And then I finished it, and I still want to know more.  Good thing there's a second one out now.  I'll be adding that one to my list for sure.
