After her estranged brother suddenly dies, a girl embarks on a road trip to rediscover who her brother really was in Vicky Skinner’s contemporary YA novel, We Are the Ghosts.
When Ellie’s estranged brother, Luke, dies in a car accident, she’s not sure whether to be devastated that she lost the person who was once her best friend or enraged, still, that he left without a word a year ago. Now, the only people who seem to understand what she’s going through are Luke’s best friend and his ex-girlfriend, who she bonds with over their desire to figure out where Luke went when he walked out of their lives.
As she gets closer to them, and closer to Cade, a boy who seems determined to get to know her better, she realizes that she’s not the only one with reasons to be angry at Luke. And when Ellie makes a discovery that changes everything, she and her new friends hit the road, hoping that following Luke’s trail will bring them answers about the life Luke was living away from them.

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
A heart-wrenching, poignant story that spoke to me on different levels. I can understand or relate to each step of the journey.
Ellie is a lovely character that steps out of her comfort zone to embark on something that many of us would be too scared to do. Although she's young she has a strength about her that's quite endearing. It was a pleasure to follow her as she's discovered hidden truths and started to truly heal emotionally.
There is a possibility that you need a tissue or two handy, a box of chocolates and a drink. Don't forget a comfy chair and an empty house!!
I would recommend this for young adults.

Born and raised in Texas, I don’t act like much of a Texan. I like cold weather and hate country music. I have a gorgeous husband, two dogs, and a Literature degree from the University of Texas at Dallas. If I’m not at home reading a book or doing laundry, I’m probably at the bookstore, nannying three rambunctious boys, or stuck on the side of the road with car trouble. I’m a reader, a writer, and a bit of a crazy person.
