Summary
In the class of the high school English teacher she has been haunting, Helen feels them: for the first time in 130 years, human eyes are looking at her. They belong to a boy, a boy who has not seemed remarkable until now. And Helen—terrified, but intrigued—is drawn to him. The fact that he is in a body and she is not presents this unlikely couple with their first challenge. But as the lovers struggle to find a way to be together, they begin to discover the secrets of their former lives and of the young people they come to possess
Summary
Although Helen died 130 years ago, her spirit is still bound to the earthly plane -- and she has "cleaved" to one human host after another, watching the world around her but not really participating in it. Currently, Helen observes the world through the body of a high school English teacher, and one day, she is startled to realize that one of the teacher's students can see her within the host! -- Description by Ellen Foreman
