If she sticks to her rules and doesn't let anyone know that she can do all those thingseverywhere, all the timeSparrow just might pass as a normal tenth grader at her new high school. She makes a new best friend and meets an irritatingly appealing guy in her history class. But when another boy catches her eye, all Sparrow's dreams of being ordinary go up in smoke. Because this boy is a dead onea persistent, charming, infuriating ghost, who won't let her be until she agrees to help him Move On.
