“Seventeen-year-old Holly Mullen has felt lost and lonely ever since her boyfriend, Rob, died in a tragic accident. The fact that she has to spend most of her free time caring for her little sister and Alzheimer’s-stricken grandfather doesn’t help. But Holly has no idea that as she goes about her days, Rob’s ghost is watching over her. He isn’t happy when he sees his best friend, Jason, reach out to help Holly with her grandfather—but as a ghost, he can do nothing to stop it. Is his best friend really falling for his girlfriend?
As Holly wonders whether to open her heart to Jason, the past comes back to haunt her. Her grandfather claims to be communicating with the ghost of Rob. Could the messages he has for Holly be real? And if so, how can the loved ones Rob left behind help his tortured soul make it to the other side?
Told from the perspectives of Holly, Jason, and Rob,Wherever You Go is is a poignant story about making peace with the past, opening your heart to love, and finding the courage to move forward into the light.”
What I liked most about this book is the great plot line of love and forgiveness. I loved that the reader see the affect of Rob’s death not just on Holly but on his friends and family. As the story progresses, the reader also gets to see things from Rob’s point of view and how he feels. this is really a unique element to the story that develop well over the course of the plot line.
The love interest in this book is so great! I loved that while Holly and Jason are both learning to forgive and move on from what happen that night, that is gave them peace. The both comforted each other, loving one another unconditionally. They both know what it is like to loose something. It only makes it hard for them to learn to live and let go.
I really like how in the end after all secrets are exposed, how well everyone fell into a state of peace. For so long people kept blaming themselves, anger, hurt and bitter. I am happy that the ending gave a hope to a new beginning. All of the point of view switches were right on target and did not confuse me.
If you want to read a book on love lost and found again, this is your book. Wherever You Go deals with the aftermath of heartache but learning to live once again. To forgive what happen in the past and move forward. Wherever You Go is a beautifully written story on finding the strength to live.
I give it 4 BITES!
