I love Hereafter! Amelia and Joshua's romance is the sweetest thing ever from the time she save him from drowning which was supposed to be impossible, but she did. And slowly they fall in love.

Eli.. the other spirit. I don't hate him. Not at all, he is just confused that is all, that's it. I love him for some strange reasons and some of you might love him if you read this book.
