This week I am waiting on
Invisible Ghosts by Robyn Schneider
Publication Date: June 5th, 2018
Rose Asher believes in ghosts. She should, since she has one for a best friend: Logan, her annoying, Netflix-addicted brother, who is forever stuck at fifteen. But Rose is growing up, and when an old friend moves back to Laguna Canyon and appears in her drama class, things get complicated.
Jamie Aldridge is charming, confident, and a painful reminder of the life Rose has been missing out on since her brother’s death. She watches as Jamie easily rejoins their former friends–a group of magnificently silly theater nerds–while avoiding her so intensely that it must be deliberate.
Yet when the two of them unexpectedly cross paths, Rose learns that Jamie has a secret of his own, one that changes everything. Rose finds herself drawn back into her old life–and to Jamie. But she quickly starts to suspect that he isn’t telling her the whole truth.
All Rose knows is that it’s becoming harder to choose between the boy who makes her feel alive and the brother she isn’t ready to lose.
I love books that have tremendous opportunities for character growth, and this is an area contemporary books excel at. Letting go is the hardest part because, how can you move forward after losing someone so close? This book sounds incredibly poignant and while Jamie’s secret has me intrigued, it’s seeing Rose find the strength the continue with her life that compels me the most.
What’s your most anticipated book?
