Seventeen-year-old Ellie had no hope left. Yet the day after she dies by suicide, she finds herself in the midst of an out-of-body experience. She is a spectator, swaying between past and present, retracing the events that unfolded prior to her death.

But there are gaps in her memory, fractured pieces Ellie is desperate to re-assemble. There’s her mother, a songbird who wanted to break free from her oppressive cage. The boy made of brushstrokes and goofy smiles who brought color into a gray world. Her brooding father, with his sad puppy eyes and clenched fists.

Told in epistolary-like style, this deeply moving novel sensitively examines the beautiful and terrible moments that make up a life and the possibilities that live in even the darkest of places.

This book is so true. We all live in a life where we’re happy, sad, and angry. And somethings we feel like giving in, letting go but then we realize to late that we could have had more, we could’ve escaped but sometimes we don’t see the little details and when we do, we regret and wish we could take it all back. But that’s the beauty of this book, it tells us that there is more to what we are feeling and that the only way to understand that is to see what you left behind. And that’s what kills us, to know that if we just held on, held on to our hopes, we could have had the life we always wanted, that sometimes we forget, we lose what we should have held on to. But also what our lose does to the people we forgot loved us, who were always there. This book is beautiful, tragic, and a warning.
