“Shari just stepped onto the balcony for some fresh air, she didn’t mean to fall. Whilst her friends assume it was suicide, she knows otherwise, and now her restless spirit must find the real killer by any means possible. She'll need the help of those she left behind and the only way to reach them now is via the ouija board, but someone or something else seems to want to communicate with her friends too with horrifying intent. Shari is forced down the one pathway left open to her...to enter their dreams.”
I recently discovered that to find the vast intellect to something, the reader has to look at it more than once. The first book in Christopher Pike’s series, Remember Me, was very good the first time I read it.

When she wakes up dead from falling off a balcony, not knowing she is dead. Everyone says that she committed suicide. Her brother was the only one that couldn’t believe it. At the party that Shari died at, she was basically dumped by her boyfriend for another girl and learned all the same that her friends had to pushed her of.
