Goodreads:  What if your last kiss was with the wrong boy? 

Cassidy Haines remembers her first kiss vividly. It was on the old covered bridge the summer before her freshman year with her boyfriend of three years, Ethan Keys. But her last kiss--the one she shared with someone at her seventeenth birthday party the night she died--is a blur. Cassidy is trapped in the living world, not only mourning the loss of her human body, but left with the grim suspicion that her untimely death wasn't a suicide as everyone assumes. She can't remember anything from the weeks leading up to her birthday and she's worried that she may have betrayed her boyfriend. 

If Cassidy is to uncover the truth about that fateful night and make amends with the only boy she'll ever love, she must face her past and all the decisions she made--good and bad--that led to her last kiss.

Kritters Thoughts:  Cassidy experiences her last kiss and she doesn't even know it.  Then she realizes that she is staring at her dead body and must follow her friends to find out how she died and help expose her killer.  

An interesting part of editing/formatting the book was where the numbered chapters were concerned that was Cassidy as a ghost in the present tense and the titled chapters were stories from the past to give the reader some context.  I appreciated that there were stories included to take the reader back in time and give some backstory.  Those parts made the book for me.  

There are a few books that are along this kind of storyline and if I put them all up against each other, I am not so sure about this one.  I didn't fall in love with Cassidy and had a hard time because she kept frustrating me and as some YA characters can be - she was a bit on the whiny side.  If you are a fan of this sub genre, then you would definitely love this one.

Rating: enjoyable, but didn't leave me wanting more
