This book really touched my heart, it was deep, realistic and most importantly it was very well written. I loved the character development of Holly the most, seeing her transform from a grief stricken and accepting caterpillar to a very happy and strong butterfly was amazing to read. This was a very fast read to me, it captured my attention from the beginning, being able to see points of view from four different characters really supported all the conflict in the story. I think if you didn't get everyone's point of view you wouldn't get as much of a powerful message.
Holly has just lost her boyfriend she loves in a tragic car accident. The worst part is she was in the accident and she survived and he didn't. Her home life is even worse, she lives in a shabby apartment and her mom is always working, trying to support their single family. Holly has to care for her younger sister Lena and now her Alzheimer's grandfather who is getting worse each day.
Jason is trying his best to win Holly's heart and try to break her of her pain of Rob. Not only was Rob Holly's boyfriend but he was Jason's best friend.
And Rob is a ghost now and is stuck in between, unsure of how to move on.
Throughout this story the characters are trying to accomplish their one goal and to move on to life and be happy. but will Rob ever make it to the light? and is there more to this story than we first suspected?
This was a very great read, I'd recommend it to anyone who loves a realistic book and perhaps is suffereing through some of the same problems, perhaps this book will inspire you to stand up for yourself and become a better you! I give this book 4.5 stars for it's engrosssing read.
