"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."
I truly did enjoy this book. So much so that I finished it within four hours. I mean, what's not to love? A love triangle between a ghost boy, aforementioned ghost boy's best friend, and his girlfriend? Makes for an interesteing story, doesn't it? Of course, that's not all it was. It was more than just a romance. Wherever You Go was about moving on and letting go, and just grieving in general. Anyone who has ever lost someone will relate to Holly and Jason, and even Rob's family.
Here's a warning: if you're going to read this (which you most definitely should!), have some tissues handy, because this one is a tear jerker. But, it wasn't a complete downer, which is what I loved about it. It had it's sad moments (which were actually quite frequent) and then it had it's sweet moments, and, sometimes, it even had it's funny moments.
Another thing I loved about this book was how it was written. Told from three different points of view, the author told each character's story from the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd person. Rob's POV was in the 2nd person (which was my favorite, as I had never before read anything written in the 2nd person), Holly's POV was writen in the 1st person, and Jason's was written in the 3rd person. You could tell Heather Davis was obviously skilled in all three types of writing. Overall, I give this one 4/5 stars.
