Amy Wolf is a fifteen year old girl with depression. At-least, she was until the night she killed herself and became a ghost. Amy killed herself because she lost both her father and her grandmother; the only people that actually cared about her. Her mother remarried an alcoholic who abuses both Amy and her mother.
Amy watched her friends deal with grief without her. One by one she says goodbye to each one of them. She finds out that her boyfriend Carter cheated on her with her friend Brooklyn and seeks revenge on them. She says goodbye to her friends through their dreams, which she can enter in a process called “dream walking.”
Amy receives a ghost mentor named Ebony who explains to her what will happen now that she is a ghost. She has roughly a month to get closure before she moves on to Terra Porta Mortuua, or the land of the dead. Ebony tells her the story of her death; a story of love, jealousy, and murder. Amy and Ebony become great friends until she leaves for Terra Porta Mortuua.
After Ebony moves on, Amy meets the boy she must mentor, Evan. She feels an irresistible pull to him, and the two instantly fall in love. Amy tells him her whole story of why she killed herself. At the end of the book she admits that she was raped by her stepfather’s friend, got pregnant, and was forced to have an abortion. Finally, Amy finds love with Evan as a ghost, and peacefully moves on to her next life.
