Blue lives in a family of psychics, but the only power she has is amplifying the abilities of others. On All Hallow's Eve, she visits the Corpse Road with her aunt. There, her aunt sees the ghosts of everyone in Henrietta who will die in the next year. For the first time, Blue is able to see a ghost. It's a boy about her age. When she asks his name, he says, "Gansy, that's all there is." Her aunt tells her the only way she would be able to see the ghost is if he is her true love, or if she killed him. Possibly both. I fell in love with all the character, who are fully developed through their actions rather than their words. The story has mystery, suspense, magic, romance. Blue and her fast-forming and tightly-bound friendship with Gansey, Adam, Ronan, and Noah felt inevitable and true. One of my favorite books of the year.
