Rubicon by: J.M. Johnson

Publication Date:
March 2014

Brigid James has returned from summer vacation hoping her classmates won’t ask about the bandanna she now wears on her wrist. When she meets Tunnel—the handsome new guy who literally makes her lose her senses—Brigid’s life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. Tunnel claims he is able to see ghosts and he is positive that Brigid can do the same. As Brigid discovers the underground world of ghosts and demons, she discovers that one ghost in particular has it in for her.

My thoughts: 
First let me tell you there is teen drug use in here. If you prefer not to read about it then don't. 
Now on the the real topics. Which are hard topics to get around but the author has done a great job finding a way to place it in this book without making it a public service announcement, like those cheesy commercials on TV.  
The characters that are written about make everything seen more real and believable. I would have gotten really bored or just given up otherwise. The whole thing is incredibly done and speaks about real life issues.

My rating:
4 stars
