The taking of Jake Livingston / Ryan Douglass.

Douglass, Ryan, (author.).

"When a murderous ghost begins to haunt sixteen-year-old Jake Livingston, high school soon becomes a different kind of survival game"-- Provided by publisher.
Jake Livingston is one of the few Black kids at St. Clair Prep, one of the others being his infinitely more popular older brother. To make matters worse and definitely more complicated, Jake can see the dead. In fact he sees the dead around him all the time. Most are harmless: stuck in their death loops as they relive their deaths over and over again, they don't interact often with people. But Sawyer was a troubled teen who shot and killed six kids at a local high school last year before taking his own life. Now a powerful, vengeful ghost, he has plans for his afterlife- plans that include Jake. -- adapted from jacket and Goodreads info
