Then Ben Michaels, resident stoner, is leaning over her. And even though it isn’t possible, she knows Ben somehow brought her back to life…

Saving June by Hannah Harrington [Review]

Synopsis

“If she’d waited less than two weeks, she’d have been June who died in June.

But I guess my sister didn’t consider that.”

When sixteen-year-old Harper’s sister June, the perfect, popular, pretty one to Harper’s also-ran, commits suicide just before her high school graduation, nothing in Harper’s world makes sense anymore.

With her family falling apart, Harper has a plan – steal June’s ashes and take her sister to the one place she always wanted to go: California.

Embarking on a wild road trip of impromptu gigs and stolen kisses with mysterious musician Jake, the one person who could hold answers about June, Harper’s determined to find peace for her sister.

But will she find peace for herself along the way?
