Since sixteen-year-old Riley Strout lost her mother two years ago, her survival has depended on the quirky little family formed from a grief support group at school. Jay, Kate, and Noah understand her pain; each lost a loved one. The four have stuck together in spite of their differences, united by tragedies only they understand.

When Riley sees her mother shopping in a grocery store, she fears she is suffering from some sort of posttraumatic stress episode-until Jay and Kate report similar visions. Noah is the only one who hasn't shared their experience. He withdraws from the others, skeptical and distant, and then suddenly disappears.

Riley fears the worst. As she, Jay, and Kay frantically search for their missing friend, they are drawn into the mystery surrounding a famous relic that belonged to Jay's father-something that may contain clues about the afterlife. And in reaching for the ones who are gone, Riley uncovers hidden truths about those she hasn't yet lost.

The book features 4 characters which is Riley, Kate, Jay and Noah. Each character has a loved one who has passed away. Such as Riley's mom and Kate's grandma I believe. Jay's dad owns a spiritual pendant in which he has found in a cave a long time ago. Each character has worn the necklace and seen a their dead loved one in the real world. In the story Noah goes missing and the gang reach out to find him. Then go through the mystery on how these events were to happen.

Things that I liked:
I liked how the author created a story on where friends work together to figure out the mystery of the pendant and it can relate to those who have lost a loved one in that way. They also use very figurative language. It is a good book for those who like a mystery.
The characters also have very diverse personalities and views on the world.

Things that can be improved:
However, the story I found was very difficult to follow at a lot of points and a few parts of the story aren't pulled together as well as I would have liked personally. I believe that the story was a little scattered all over the place.

I adore the friendship in this book. It deals with guilt and pushing through the hard times, using friendship and relying on others. There is a cool history, supernatural element as well with a touch of mystery. But truly the realistic and strong friendships are what made me love this book more.
