What if your last kiss was with the wrong boy?In Bethany Neal's My Last Kiss, 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. Now, 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.
Seventeen-year-old Cassidy Haines has just died after falling from a bridge, and now she's a ghost, witnessing her own autopsy. She soon finds out that her boyfriend, Ethan, is the only person who can see her, and she enlists his help to piece together what actually took place on the night she died, even as her friend Aim e investigates, too. Through a series of flashbacks, Cassidy is forced to revisit moments leading up to her death. The setup of Neal's debut may remind some adult readers of the 1980s classic Ghost, though the dialogue can sound more like that of a TV police procedural ("From where I was standing, she was unstable that night") than a story about teenagers concerned about their friend's death. Neal creates confusion while trying to maintain mystery; so many people in Cassidy's life were involved on the night of her death, readers may find themselves as lost as Cassidy as the mystery progresses. Ages 12 up.

Slow to get to the point
It takes a lot of time to built up to the climax and then it’s kind of a let down overall. There are better books out there.
This is a great book every page is worth reading.
