Book Description from Amazon:
After Estella Montclair is killed in a texting and driving crash, what remains of her face and body is devastating. But not all of her has died. During the first month after her death, Estella's spirit travels among her living friends and family. Her best friends Zara, Eva and Jett show her how pain and sorrow can break apart or strengthen a bond. She also sees for the first time that loss can spark revenge, catastrophe can come without warning, and we all have secrets. She wonders if her chance for love with Phoenix has passed her by, and if out of sight truly means out of mind. And maybe one day the girl who caused her death will admit her mistake. While adjusting to a new state of being, Estella struggles to face the limitations that come with death, but blossoms by recognizing she can still touch the lives of the people she once knew so well.

My Review

Estella Montclair has it all. She has great friends, a great family, a nice boyfriend and is constantly in the papers for being a start on the track team. She has just went and found the perfect prom dress with her fiends and after saying by to them she is tragically killed by a person texting and driving. Even though she has died her spirit is still here. Watching over her friends and family. People who love her are falling apart. The one who killed her doesn't seem to care or let it bother her that she killed someone. Estella wants to help her love ones and wants the one who did this to feel something.

 This is a very emotional book. With today's times you hear all about people texting and driving and ending up in accidents. Estella finds out a lot about her family and friends as she follows them around. Even when she wants to reach out and help them she can't.She finds out many things secrets people have hidden deep down and she sees how people will act in a situation like this. Her friends go thru so much trying to protect her memory and keep it alive. I felt really pulled into this story as the author did an amazing job at writing this. This is a book every teen or really anybody should read. If you are wanting a book told from the point of view from a spirit or something different and very fulfilling I would recommend picking this one up. You won't be let down. It is so hard to leave this review like this but I don't want to give any spoilers. Just know after reading this book it won't leave your mind. It stays there and makes you think about life, your loved ones and much much more.
