Shift (Shade, #2)
In the second book of the Shade trilogy from Jeri Smith-Ready, Aura is torn between the two boys who hold her heart and determined to unravel the secrets of the Shift.

Aura's life is anything but easy. Her boyfriend, Logan, died, and his slides between ghost and shade have left her reeling. Aura knows he needs her now more than ever. She loves Logan, but she can't deny her connection with the totally supportive, totally gorgeous Zachary. And she's not sure that she wants to.

Logan and Zachary will fight to be the one at her side, but Aura needs them both to uncover the mystery of her past; the mystery of the Shift. She not the only one seeking answers, though, and danger grows as she discovers new truths. Who can Aura trust with her secrets? And to whom will she give her heart?

Paperback, 400 pages

Published May 1st 2012 by Simon Pulse (first published April 28th 2011)

The sequel to the Shade series was filled with unexpected possibilities, after Logan went all Shade he's gone for months until one night he finally return but not in the way Aura would thought. Things starts to unravel when Aura and Zach's project continues to grow, but there are secrets that even Aura doesn't know that may impact her life.

The more digging Aura does, the more DMP becomes even more so curious about who she is and what's she is. Ewoyn contains the hidden secrets and soon she has to trust Aura and Zach to protect the secrets that could mean everything to Aura.

Aura still struggles with giving her all for Zach when Logan still lurks but just how far is Aura willing to go to either be with Zach or can she finally let go of Logan?

I give squel to Shade an 5 Cat's Tails Up, I love every moments that were between Zack and Aura but as well the secrets that lies in Aura's mom journal are soon to be reveal. 

MEOW . . . MEOW . . . MEOW
Wow I knew that shade wasn't going to be the end of Logan but what I didn't expect was him to be fully solid on the night he shows up after so many months, Aura took those precious moments. But then Logan turns back into a ghost, no explanation to why he was able to become solid and how is it possible that a ghost that went Shade can turn back into a ghost.

Zach and Aura are hitting it off, but Zach is still somewhat jealous that Aura is still holding on to Logan and when Zach asks Aura to prom somehow that whole idea got screwed up either because Zach was mad that Aura couldn't move on from Logan or because Logan couldn't move on.

Their project was still going on learning but then suddenly Ewoyn has to take off once she gave Aura's parts of her mom's journals . . . the missing pages. To Aura that is the key to finding out who her father was and who her mom was as well since she died when she was very young.

DMP takes Aura and Zach into custody for unknown reasons but luckily Zach and Aura breaks free and  run into the unknown woods. Now I like scenes where character runs into the woods, I'm not sure why but it always intrigue me when they're on the run from something and the woods take reality away.

Now Aura and Zach go to prom, oh how I remember my proms days however when Zach goes to Prom with Becca she has her own wicked games the oops-I-hit-the-dial button by mistake. Aura is torn to feeling hurt and embarrassed. It was awkward for a while but Zach made it to a point to Aura that he wants her and only her.

The ending was my second favorite thing, Zach purchase plane tickets + room at a castle = for a couple days in Ireland. Zach couldn't be anymore perfect :-)
