The Ghost of You and Me by Kelly Oram, Blog Tour



 


  The Ghost of You and Me by Kelly Oram 

 How do you tell someone who hates you and blames you for the death of his best friend that you miss him? From the bestselling teen and young adult author of Cinder & Ella comes a new heart-wrenching romance sure to bring all the feels. The tragic death of Spencer Schott unravels the lives of the two people he loved most—his girlfriend, Bailey, and his best friend, Wes. Secrets and guilt from that fateful night keep both Bailey and Wes from overcoming Spencer’s loss and moving on with their lives. Now, nearly a year later, both Bailey and Wes are still so broken over what happened that Spencer can’t find peace in the afterlife. In order to put his soul to rest, he’s given one chance to come back and set things right...even if that means setting up his girlfriend with his best friend. With the emotional resonance of Jellicoe Road and the magical realism of The Lovely Bones, The Ghost of You and Me is a story about overcoming grief, finding redemption for past mistakes, and the healing power of friendship and love. Fans of John Green, Sarah Dessen, and Nicholas Sparks are sure to love this haunting new tale from Kelly Oram. This is a clean young adult romance stand alone novel that reads like contemporary drama romance and has just a touch of magical realism.



My Review:


Now this story is one that you want to buckle your seatbelt for! Honestly, I stayed up until 1:30 am to finish reading it, I could NOT put it down. Right off the bat I was pulled into Bailey's story; her two best friends Spencer and Wes. They were like the three musketeers! And one game of spin the bottle changed everything and then it was Bailey and Spencer as a couple. Then tragedy strikes and I could not even begin to imagine the pain and suffering that Bailey went through along with Wes when Spencer died.This story is  full of so many emotional issues. Death, suicide, cancer, love, loss and guilt.  Add in there the ghost of Bailey's dead boyfriend and it gives the story a twist and some humor from a ghost. A YA story that packs all the punches, The Ghost of Me and You is a tragically and emotionally beautiful story.
