WHAT IT'S ABOUT: In a 1920s seaside town, Clare discovers a mysterious glass house in the backyard of her new summer home. There she falls in love with Jack, the ghost of a boy who can’t remember who he was before he died. Their romance is a haven for her from the cruel pranks of her society friends, especially her best friend, Bridget, who can’t wait to grow up and embark on romances of her own. As Clare begins to suspect an affair between her mother and Bridget's father, she retreats to the glass house. But that haven begins to crack when she realizes that Jack has lied to her about his name . . . From a dazzling and fearless new voice comes a shimmering story full of wonder and mystery, in a world where every character is haunted by lingering ghosts of love.
MY THOUGHTS: 1920s? Say no more, I'm already "Wanting to Read" it. I adore anything and everything to do with the Roaring '20s. I don't know why, or where this obsession started but I may or may not have imagined myself attending one of Jay Gatsby's famous parties dressed up in Flapper apparel. How cool would that be?! That being said, this tale adds ghosts and romance into the mix, there's no way that I can say no!
