This Summer for Iris is going to be much different than any of her others, and probably not for the better. Iris and her best friend, Collete, have always pretended that they could do things with ghosts and spent time in the local graveyard hanging out, however, when one day a ghost actually talks to Iris, Collete's and Iris's summer changes and they start thinking twice about playing with the other side. Iris is haunted by the ghost, Elijah as he haunts her thoughts, dreams, and rips apart her room, searching for a certain note. As the summer goes on, Iris, Collete, and Ben try to unfold the mystery of Elijah's disappearance and face a lot of troubles because of it. What will end up happening in the end? Find out by reading "Shadowed Summer" by Saundra Mitchell!
I really enjoyed this book! It was a fast read with only 183 pages, however it was just enough to fit in everything that I, as a reader wanted to read about! I found the characters were well written and even though the story was about ghosts, you could still relate to it. However, it did seem like at times the story, especially when reading about the older ladies, was set in a older time period compared to the rest of the story. I really did enjoy this book though and I think it would make a great summer read!
