Grim by Anna Waggener - NO

Waggener, Anna Grim, 313 pgs. Scholastic Press, 2012. Language - PG-13 (60 swears, 8 "f"), Sexual Content - PG-13; Violence - PG-13; 

Erika's family believes that she is dead. They saw her body, witnessed the burial, and are trying to move on. But Erika won't let go. Even in Limbo, Erika calls her children and begs for them to be brought to her. Is she ready to pay for her choice? 

This is one story that I would've put back on the shelf and forgotten about in normal circumstances. Too many pages go by without clearing up the confusion that is brought up in the preceding pages. The book has chapters that jump between the past and present to show the readers the original cause for the whole ordeal. Those chapters explaining the past are the only ones that I could follow without getting confused for half the book, with thoroughly frustrated me.
