Sixteen-year-old Jada has always felt out of place in her family. So when she's sent to spend the summer with her ailing Aunt May, she's eager to find out more about her relatives. But Jada gets more than she bargained for when her search leads her to the ghost of Starr Freeman. Starr helps Jada find the answers to many of her questions, except for two of the most important: Why has he come back? And what does he want from her? 'This is a soft, pastel story of a young woman searching for her voice and for a sense of belonging. It's a delicate tale that reveals its plot and characters through nuance and implication.'--SLJ.
