A Certain Slant of Light by Laura Whitcomb

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.

Even though this was an original story plot I found that this book was a bit boring. I cannot explain exactly what was wrong with the but I believe that the story moved too slowly and seemed to go into great detail in places that didn't need it. I often found myself avoiding this book and mu mind kept wondering while I read it. I was really hoping to enjoy this book but it didn't turn out as I hoped it would.
