"Savannah wanted to kiss him, but she had never even kissed a human guy before, let alone a ghost. How was she supposed to kiss him if he wasn't really there?" Savannah has never been in love before, but she's in love with Hunter Emmerton. He's cute, funny, charming...and a ghost. How can you date someone if nobody else can see them?
After seventeen-year-old Savannah Fraser and her three friends are killed in a car accident, they are given a second chance at life by a group of hundred-year-old teenage earthbound spirits who need their help.
Savannah and her friends learn that they are The Chosen Ones, which means they can switch between human and spirit form, heal people and control the weather. And they are also now invincible.
The Chosen Ones are the only ones who can defeat The Forces - a group of evil spirits who are slowly destroying the perfect little town of Fort Everwick with violent storms and not-so-natural disasters - and stop them from harming everyone they care about.
The Forces are set on destroying everything Savannah knows and loves, but they also have another plan - they want a new member to join them. They aren't willing to give up until they get the one they want...and they have Savannah firmly in their sights.
Savannah had never been confident in herself before, but with her new-found powers, she discovers just how strong herself and her friends really are. But what Savannah didn't count on was falling in love with Hunter. She's never loved anyone the way she loves Hunter and she knows he loves her too. But how can they be together forever if he no longer exists and she's the only one who can see him?
Will Savannah have enough belief in herself to defeat The Forces, or will they be able to lure her to the dark side and turn her against her loved ones...and tear her and Hunter apart?

Review of Faded by Chloe Miles
Reviewed for Young Adult Novel Readers Blog Hop
In a tiny town called Fort Everwick-the kind of community with a Norman Rockwell sweet style-four earthbound spirits have kept watch on the community and its inhabitants, including animal, since they each separately passed on March 19,1932. The four are sort of spirit guides, but additionally they’ve been gifted powers, including the ability to bring back to life. One, Hunter Emmerton, also has visions: precognitive realisations of both positive and negative events. Hunter and the others save a group of four adolescents in 1989, pursuant to his visions; but three of those turn evil and call themselves The Forces, set to take the town down by whatever means, including natural disasters.
So Hunter and his crew must find replacements, and they save a group of four, who become “The Chosen Ones”. However, The Forces want to replace their “fourth” too. What happens when one of these latter four, Samantha, falls head over heels with Hunter, deceased since 1932, will keep readers riveted to the pages.
“Faded” is an engrossing story with a delightful (and heartwarming premise). YA aficionados will adore it. As for me-I’m thankful it’s the first in a trilogy.
