I really enjoyed this book, that is once I got past the first few chapters. I found the begining to be a little slow, but once I got past that initial hump I couldn't put this book down. Jessie and her friends are believable teends and the situtations while of the paranormal became real as you read them. I was sucked in and the world that Wilson created rose up around me. This is one of those rare novels in which I was really sad when it came to a close. And one in which I wish that the author would write a sequel to continue the story in this faboulous world that she created. If you are looking for an engaging and well written young adult book then I highly recommend The Shadow Within. You won't be disappointed for this has it all: mystery, romance, drama, teen angst, and more!
