The Ghosts We Keep is a heartbreaking story that contains realistic scenes of death, love, and healing. Liam’s brother, Ethan, was killed in a hit and run. While the family grieves over the death of Ethan, Liam struggles with maintaining relationships with friends and dealing with grief. He seeks comfort in Ethan’s best friend, Marcus, and learns secrets about Ethan that weren’t known when he was alive. Though this book is contains tons of tragedy, it will leave you feeling empowered at the end.
This book is full of raw emotions; like sadness, loneliness, and grief. This story portrays grief accurately, showing how many react differently and heal at different rates. It may seem like this is a story about love, and how it can find you at any time, but it’s not. This is a story about a person trying to collect the pieces and move on to a new chapter of their life. The only thing I don’t like about this story is how fast-paced it is, making it hard to grasp information. The cover of the book is perfect, it shows how even if Ethan isn’t there physically, he will always be mentally present with Liam. If you are looking to shed a few tears, this book is the perfect fit for you.
