The Whispers of the Sprite (The Whispers #1) by Joanna Mazurkiewicz

2 stars
Format: Ebook
Genre: young adult, paranormal, romance
230 pages

Note: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Ania’s life changes when she is stabbed late one night on the beach. After the incident she starts to be able to see spirits, one in particular is Gabriel. The rub of the situation, Gabriel and Ania could not touch one another.

My Review:
Even though the plot idea is interesting an original the writing style is immature and shaky with too much description. I found myself wanting to skip through parts and the characters did not seem very believable. It is understandable that Ania wants to move away from her mom but she seems rude about it. Especially when she is the one that stupidly goes out alone at night with no protection, no surprise she gets stabbed, with that she still pushes her mom away.
