About The Ghost of You:

In this poignant sophomore YA novel, a transgender teen must grapple with a longtime friendship fracturing and a new romance budding, all while being haunted by his grief from his brother’s death.

Everything has felt wrong since Caleb’s brother died, so when he sees a black cat that seems off, he doesn’t think anything of it. But when he looks closer, the cat doesn’t appear to have a clear face. It looks like it’s been smudged out. And he keeps following Caleb around. Haunting him. So Caleb calls him Ghost.

Caleb is trying to return to his normal life, but he can’t stop feeling distant and numb. Even being assigned to work on a school project with Emmett, the lead singer for a punk rock band, just feels like another blip. But as Caleb’s feelings for Emmett grow, so does the distance he has put between himself and his best friend, Tanya. 

Can Caleb stop running from his grief in order to save his friendship and discover Ghost’s true purpose?
