Ruby Parker dies in a car crash after having a fight with her boyfriend, Leo, but she doesn't realize she's dead until she encounters her half-sister Audrey, who is able to communicate with her. With a bit of help from Audrey and a couple of cursed ghosts, Ruby sets out on a mission to find out if Leo really loved her.
This is a complex narrative full of interesting characters and back stories. Music, fantasy, and romance combine to create a magical story of young love. The author's musical background and talent shine through in the song lyrics, which are particularly poignant.
This is a sad, heart-wrenching book that will end up putting a smile on your face.
I really enjoyed this one.
I received this book in return for an honest review.
