[A Wattpad Featured Story]

At the age of seventeen, Harper Pearce is no stranger to death. 
    
Since the night of her parents' fatal car accident,  she's had the ability to communicate with the echoes of souls trapped in the obscure in-between. Living with these ghosts and an aunt that often seems even more mysterious, she's come to terms with the fact that her life is destined for helping spirits move on and showing the ones they've left behind how to let go. And after twelve years, she's sure she's seen it all. 
    
That is, until Jonathan Beckett Jr and the curious spirit of his brother walk into her aunt's shop. 

                                                                                              ~ * ~

                              The excerpt was informative. It gave us an idea on what to expect. I got confused, is Beckett Sr the father and Beckett Jr the son? And who is his elder brother. I would have loved if it was clearer.

I love this - "He was a grin rather than a smile, a running-out-of-breath laughter rather than a chuckle." ❤️
 #thabc this was so great! I really like it. It's just amazing. The opening line was really good. I know beck is dead but I don't think he is gone for good.

                              You very effectively anchor your reader in the living, breathing, laughing, curious life of a character who we discover in the very last sentence is dead.  Bravo!
I really love The poetics employed here - under a sycamore tree - was evocative and really helped ground my understanding of Beck. Love it 😍
Fantastic way of establishing the character and then ending on a cliff hanger!
