I'm not normally one for ghost stories but something about this book captured my interest.
It's not a ghost story in the spooky sense but it definitely makes you think. After all, none of us know what really happens once someone's passed away... and maybe it is just like this book describes... we hang around until our unfinished business is put to rest.
After David passes away he forms a bond with someone he never had any time for when he was alive, a girl at his school called Bethany.
Despite living in different worlds they form a strong bond and the story pushes their new friendship to its limits.
This is a really interesting book to read. The mystery of it keeps you turning pages and there are a few really tense parts of the story which keep you gripped to every word. Throw in a bit of romance and you have an all round great read.
The back page blurb:
If there is a hell, I think maybe this is it.
Weeks after fifteen-year-old David is killed by a speeding driver, he’s still hanging around and he doesn’t know why. The only person who can see and hear him is the girl he spent his schooldays bullying.
Bethany is the most hated girl at school. She hides away, alone with her secrets until, one day, the ghost of a boy killed in a hit-and-run starts to haunt her.
Together, they find that the end is only the beginning…
The Memory Game is a ghost story like none you’ve seen before.
