Waiting on Ashes to Ashes by Melissa Walker

Once I spotted the reveal and post by Walker at Bookish, I immediately 
added this to the pre-order list. It's hard for me to resist a story described 
as painful and beautiful, especially when it's about haunting your 
loved ones to help them move on.

The book is the first in a two-book series, and it's about a girl named Callie, whose life is cut short by a tragic accident. When she dies, instead of the nothingness she expects, she finds an ethereal plane called the Prism, in which you are taught to haunt your loved ones, to help them move on from your death. It's both painful and beautiful, and Callie struggles to find peace there. But there is also danger in this beyond: Ghosts who will do anything, and hurt anyone, in order to live again.

“A beautiful novel about the power of love over life and death.” (Alex Flinn, New York Times bestselling author of Beastly)

“Intense, suspense–laden and full of surprising twists. This story will haunt you in every sense of the word!” (Sophie Jordan, New York Times bestselling author of the Firelight series)

Ooh, I hadn't heard of this one yet! But that cover is seriously gorgeous, and the blurb sounds like it could be good! Definitely checking it out. Great pick!

I fell like the blurb doesn't tell us enough and the cover is pretty, but not that attention catching. But I'll still look into it!

Love that cover! So beautiful. Btw, Cat I think it was you who had featured a book for WoW months ago about a grown boy with autism who was living on his own. I was just talking with a coworker and I had mentioned it, would you be able to tell me the title of that book? She's really interested in reading it.
