While I don’t usually read ghost stories, I think I would regret not reading this one. I like how the book switches the point of view between the ghosts and the three main characters Joshua, Brenna, and Callie. It highlights the struggles between all of the characters and what they have to live with. They all come from very different families. Callie has an eating disorder while Callie’s mother has cancer, Joshua, who is gay, constantly has to deal with homophobia and learn to live with his stepfather, and Brenna who has to grow up with a pressuring Hispanic family and deals with cruel names. They find that each of them connects with the ghost that comes to find them. And, they grow closer as friends while figuring out how to change their lives for the better. I adored the book and I’m excited for the debuting author.
