After a car accident, Riley crosses the bridge into the after life. While there she is assigned the job of soul catcher, one who returns to the earthly plain to convince ghosts to move on. Together with her mentor Bodhi, and her dog Buttercup she travels to a haunted castle to complete her first mission. Targeted to young adult female readers, Radiance is a gentle story told in a straightforward manner. I'm giving it 4 stars and plan on passing it onto my 12 year old niece so I can get her impressions.
