Review: The Shadow by Kelly Green

Goodreads Summary:
Smart and sassy Abby Grace is a seventeen-year-old with a talent for getting out of trouble. Sent to repair the lives and loves of teenagers on the edge of disaster, Abby is the perfect girl for the job. She has everything going for her… except one thing: a body.

This fast-paced and exciting episode is the first installment in an ongoing mystery series with a supernatural twist.

This was a really quick read.  I believe it was about 60 pages long.  In that time, there wasn’t a lot of opportunity to set-up a good plot or story-line, but the author did a great job of letting us know what was going on.  I understood the premise behind Abby Grace.  Abby Grace is a young girl who isn’t quite sure, but thinks that she died.  She now spends her time in the bodies of other people helping them get through situations that are tough for them to handle.  While she is helping them, she needs to learn what they’re like and who they are because she isn’t sure.  She’s never met this person before and doesn’t know who their family or friends are. 

This was an interesting episode to read, and if you are looking for something quick you should give it a shot.  A little bit of paranormal with a lot of mystery surrounding the reason Abby Grace is in this other person’s body.  An overall well-written short story.
