Red is for Remembrance by Laurie Faria Stolarz

I know you're alone . . .

Shattered by her boyfriend's tragic death, Stacey is struggling in her first year of college, hoping that somehow, somewhere, Jacob is still alive. Now her nightmares are back, haunted by ghosts and misery. Casting healing spells brings Stacey closer to Porsha—a troubled girl who's also dreaming of death—and to a strange boy whose life is in danger. To save him, it'll take all the strength and magic they've got. And maybe even cost them their lives.

REVIEW: I have to say, I really liked the books ending, it was sort of happy, but with a twist. Nothing is ever as perfect as people can write them. In the beginning of the story, I really got bored and annoyed with Shell's part of the story. Stacey's was more interesting, and seemed to have much more going on, but you know, reading books for me, the more crazier, the better. ( but that's my preference ) But once Shell started seeing that X ( trying not to give any spoilers ) his story seemed to get more complicated. They were both trying to find each other, in different ways, and peice everything together. If I had to change one thing, I would say to make the books longer, that way you could built a lot more suspense to everything, and create more drama. The books were definately a quick read, but would advise anyone who loves mysteries to read them. x.
