Summary from Goodreads:

This heartbreaking story—perfect for fans of If I Stay and Five Feet Apart—follows a girl swept up in the magic of her first love, until it all comes to a tragic end that might lead her into the afterlife itself. Soon to be a motion picture on Paramount+ starring Joey King!

After bouncing around in foster homes for most of her childhood, seventeen-year-old Tessa Jacobs doesn’t believe she deserves love—not from her adoptive parents, and certainly not from anyone at school.

But everything changes when she has a chance encounter with Skylar, a senior from a neighboring town who’s a true romantic. Their budding relationship quickly leads to the kind of passion you only see in the movies. As her heart begins to open, Tessa starts to believe she might be deserving of love after all.

When tragedy strikes, Tessa wakes up alone in a hospital room with no memory of how she got there. And then she learns the horrifying news: Skylar is dead. As Tessa searches for answers, Skylar’s spirit reaches out to her from the other side. Desperate to see him one last time, Tessa must race against the clock to uncover the shocking truth of their relationship—a truth that might just lead to the afterlife itself.

A sweet story of young love and loss.

This was a sad paranormal love story filled with struggle and pain, but so much understanding. The main characters, Tessa and Skylar spend a long summer together, falling in love, but tragedy hits and Skyler is killed in a car accident. Tessa then spends the rest of the story trying to bridge the gap between the living and the dead to talk to Skylar one more time.

I watched the movie, which was a strange mix of paranormal and romance, but this book was so much better. It was worth the read and the feels that came along with it.
