Review From User :
4.5 stars. A story of family, grief, and dead and missing young women. Part of this story felt familiar to the situations in Canada:
1) the taking of indigenous youth from their families and the deep and long-lasting psychological trauma to the children and their families.
2) missing and dead aboriginal women, and the lack of substantial, societal interest.
This was a deeply emotional story, and had me in tears by the end.
Nothing’s been the same for Beth Teller since the day she died.
Her dad is drowning in grief. He’s also the only one who has been able to see and hear her since the accident. But now she’s got a mystery to solve, a mystery that will hopefully remind her detective father that he is still alive, that there is a life after Beth that is still worth living.
Who is Isobel Catching, and why is she able to see Beth, too What is her connection to the crime Beth’s father has been sent to investigate–a gruesome fire at a home for troubled youth that left an unidentifiable body behind What happened to the people who haven’t been seen since the fire
As Beth and her father unravel the mystery, they find a shocking and heartbreaking story lurking beneath the surface of a small town, and a friendship that lasts beyond one life and into another…
