I am really curious to see how the relationship goes in this book. I'm still skeptical because in Hereafter it seemed like it was just very impossible. Maybe it'll prove me wrong...

Arise by Tara Hudson
Hardcover, 400 pages
Expected publication: July 5th 2012 by Harper Collins Children's Books

From Goodreads:
Amelia—still caught between life and death—must fight for every moment of her relationship with the human boy Joshua. They can hardly even kiss without Amelia accidentally dematerializing. Looking for answers, they go to visit some of Joshua’s Seer relatives in New Orleans. But even in a city so famously steeped in the supernatural, Amelia ends up with more questions than answers…and becomes increasingly convinced that she and Joshua can never have a future together.Wandering through the French Quarter, Amelia meets other in-between ghosts, and begins to seriously consider joining them. And then she meets Gabrielle. Somehow, against impossible odds, Gaby has found a way to live a sort of half-life...a half-life for which Amelia would pay any price. Torn between two worlds, Amelia must choose carefully, before the evil spirits of the netherworld choose for her.

You know I'm curious too. What future is there in a ghost relationship? Could be interesting.

I haven't read Hereafter, but I am intrigued by the summary of this book. I love reading about seemingly impossible relationships!

I didn't realize Hereafter had a sequel! That's exciting! I still haven't read Hereafter, but it's on my TBR list for sure. Great pick! I love the cover.
