“Since her sister’s tragic death, seventeen-year-old Callie Ryan has basically given up. Her grades have plummeted, she’s quit her swim team, and she barely recognizes the people her parents have become.
When she returns to her aunt’s run-down coastal Victorian one year after Chloe’s death, Callie resigns herself to a summer of guilt and home renovations. She doesn’t expect to be charmed by the tiny coastal town or by Tucker Morgan, a local boy brimming with sunshine.
But even as her days begin to brighten, Callie’s nights are crowded with chilling dreams, unanswered questions, and eerie phenomenon that have her convinced she’s being haunted. Will Callie be able to figure out what her sister is trying to communicate before it’s too late?”
The bond of sisterhood is like no other. Love, friendship, and safety can all be found within its borders. The relationship that Callie and Chloe shared was one that encompassed all three elements, and allowed each girl to entrust themselves within an unbreakable bond. When Chloe passes away, this shakes Callie’s world, turning it upside down into an unimaginable pain that no sibling should ever have to face. Katy Upperman did such an amazing job at illuminating and showcasing this relationship, while making it feel real, true, and heartbreaking. I was completely immersed into the world of Callie and felt her struggle of despair, grief, pain, and reluctance that anything will ever be the same.
This was my first Katy Upperman novel and I really enjoyed how it was so easy to read, feel, and experience. The touch of love being reborn from Callie meeting her love interest brought a breath of fresh air and context to the novel that allowed it to be light- hearted in the midst of despair and healing. The story line was so fluid and logical, with great pacing and movement. Upperman created a novel that was so beautifully true, and will stick with me for days to come.
