I must say that I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book. --Groucho Marx

From Goodreads:

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.

  6. This is getting closer to the top of my to-read list, but I haven't read it yet. The premise sounds so similar to other YA contemps that I'm just not sure if I'm going to like it. It'll be fun to see, I guess.
