Goodreads Synopsis:

An impossible truth. An impossible love.

After a summer spent reclaiming her sanity and trying to forget the boy she fell in love with--the boy who must not exist, cannot exist, because she knows that he is dead--Abbey returns to Sleepy Hollow, ready to leave the ghosts of her past behind. She throws herself into her schoolwork, her perfume-making, and her friendship with Ben, her cute and funny lab partner, who just might be her ticket to getting over Caspian once and for all.

But Abbey can never get over Caspian, and Caspian has no choice but to return to her side, for Caspian is a Shade, and Abbey is his destiny. They are tied not only to each other, but also to the town of Sleepy Hollow, and to the famous legend that binds their fates--a legend whose dark truths they are only beginning to guess....

My Review:

Abbey has been desperately trying to forget Caspian, a boy she feel in love with only to discover he was a ghost. Shocked by the discovery and doubting her mental sanity, Abbey left Sleepy Hollow for the summer to forget everything. Now that summer is ending and it's time for school, Abbey must put on her big girl pants and return home. At first she throws herself into her school work and her new friend Ben, who happens to be alive and real. Trying to stay busy everyday in order to feel normal again is very hard for Abby. Then, one day, Caspian reappears in her life, and Abby realizes that you can never outrun your destiny no matter how hard you try.  

This second installment goes deeper into the mystery of Caspian. Is he real? Or is he a figment of Abby's imagination? Due to Abby's friends death, she has been having a hard time dealing with the pain. And Caspian is around all the time. So it makes sense that Abby has found some comfort in Caspian. But if he's not real then how can she be the only one who sees him? This is where the mystery lies. I honestly had an amazing time trying to figure out how Abby was able to see Caspian. Why was she able to touch him, talk to him, connect with him, but others couldn't? Well it turns out that the day Abby's friend died wasn't her death day. Instead someone else was supposed to die. The mystery is thrilling and if you haven't read this series yet, I recommend you go read it cause it will not disappoint!
