Wherever You Go - Heather Davis
Title: Wherever You Go
Release Date: 11/2011
From The Back: 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.
My Review: Right off the bat this book took me for a ride. The cover is amazing, and as soon as you open it to the first chapter I had to pause. See here is the really truly unique part to this book, this book is written in three different perspectives. And I'm not talking just three different characters, though we have that going on too. I'm talking, we've got first person, second person, and third person going on. I've never really been a fan of second person stuff, I guess, I just hadn't been exposed to a well written second person story before. I know that me saying second person is going to scare some people off, believe me, it almost scared me off when I read the first "you" instead of a name or an "I". But here is the flat out truth people, when you get a chance to get your hands on this book, seriously read it all the way through, all of the perspectives first, second, and third all together are amazingly written, extremely vivid, and emotional. Wherever You Go is a roller coaster of emotions and at some points this book is just down right heart breaking, but it has a feel good total to the whole thing. Wherever You Go is amazingly touching, raw, and real, and I encourage everyone to go out and grab a copy as soon as it comes out!
