When Ellie’s estranged brother, Luke, dies in a car accident, she’s not sure whether to be devastated that she lost the person who was once her best friend or enraged, still, that he left without a word a year ago. Now, the only people who seem to understand what she’s going through are Luke’s best friend and his ex-girlfriend, who she bonds with over their desire to figure out where Luke went when he walked out of their lives.
As she gets closer to them, and closer to Cade, a boy who seems determined to get to know her better, she realizes that she’s not the only one with reasons to be angry at Luke. And when Ellie makes a discovery that changes everything, she and her new friends hit the road, hoping that following Luke’s trail will bring them answers about the life Luke was living away from them.

We Are The Ghosts - Vicky Skinner
This story is so well written, There are so many twists and surprises. It keeps you guessing what is coming next.
The characters are all well-developed. It is so easy to feel their emotions. You really can feel all their feelings and all they go through... All the heart ache and loss. I totally understand how Ellie couldn't understand or control her feelings.
The friends are a great part of the story.
The story flows well from chapter to chapter and is easy to follow along.
I highly recommend this book to others. It is a very good read.
I give this a literary rating of 5/5
Born and raised in Texas, I don’t act like much of a Texan. I like cold weather and hate country music. I have a gorgeous husband, two dogs, and a Literature degree from the University of Texas at Dallas. If I’m not at home reading a book or doing laundry, I’m probably at the bookstore, nannying three rambunctious boys, or stuck on the side of the road with car trouble. I’m a reader, a writer, and a bit of a crazy person.
