I’m horrible at book reviews but I do like to write a little something about the books I read even if I dont always blog it publicly.
That being said, I absolutely loved this book. The voice of Ryan was so perfect and the aftermath of his suicide attempt tenderly chronicled. His struggle to understand himself why he did what he did is mirrored in the questions his new friend Nikki has regarding her own father’s suicide.
As Ryan tries to explain to Nikki that some things are not easily explained, Nikkie seeks out various psychics to speak to the spirit of her dead father. Ryan undergoes transformation and growth as his friendship with Nikki blooms and they both struggle for answers.
What’s amazing is how well Jennifer Hubbard has captured that struggle, when depression and suicide have no easy answers and how fittingly the title is thematically linked to so many scenes within.
