One quiet night in Boulder, Colorado, Aspen Yellow-Sunrise Taylor made a mistake.
Aspen doesn't want to remember the car accident that killed Katelyn Ryan, a sleek-haired popular soccer player. But forgetting is hard-- because Katelyn may have died -- but she didn't leave. Her ghost is following Aspen around, and heading into senior year, it's kind of a problem. Especially when Katelyn's former boyfriend Ben appears to be the only person at school with a clue as to how Aspen feels.
Popularity, Homecoming Court, hot guys - none of these things ever mattered to Aspen. She's been busy trying to keep her stoner mother Ninny in line and out of unemployment. But with Ben sitting next to her in Physics and her therapist begging her to remember all the things she wants to forget, Aspen is thrust into a vivid, challenging world she can't control ... and doesn't want to.
A darkly funny, emotionally gripping story of opening up, letting go, and moving on, Aspen is about the best-worst accident of your life ... and what comes next.
Can you miss someone who’s supposed to be dead but keeps popping up everywhere and scaring the shit out of you?
I couldn’t help but smile. In my experience, people who laugh hard, like their laughs are bursting from the bottom of their stomachs up through their chests; make the world a little lighter.
Sometimes what we feel can’t be defined because it would take every word, every sound, every emotion ever created to do it. That’s what I think love is.
