Haunt Me by Liz Kessler

Joe wakes up one day to find his family moving out of his home and saying goodbye to him as though he wasn't even there. Erin moves into a new house in a new town, loving her new bedroom until she begins to get the feeling that she isn't the only one who lives there. Olly is getting over the death of his brother, but when he spots a new girl in the school corridor, he realises the way he viewed the world (and girls) may be about to change. 

This book was silly. Sure, it wasn't supposed to be realistic, since a human was having a relationship with a ghost, but it could have been made to feel almost realistic, and it just wasn't. I didn't particularly like any of the characters and I felt as though Erin's family weren't supportive at all and should have spotted that their daughter was acting strange. I liked that Erin and Joe were brought together by poetry, as that's something that is often forgotten in today's society, particularly in YA literature, but as far as the rest of the novel - I wasn't that impressed. It was an okay story with okay characters, but that's as far as it goes for me.
