    *Starred Review* In the wake of her younger brother Tyler's suicide, Lex feels utterly alone. Her friends look at her in a way she can't stand, her mother has withdrawn, her dad and his new wife are distant, and she has pushed her decent, kind, and perfectly matched boyfriend (now ex) as far away as possible. She needs to make sense of this loss and piece together Tyler's last days and moments, and her struggle to do so becomes almost all consuming. But she still finds connections—with Tyler's friends, with a neighbor girl from whom she had grown distant, and with Tyler, who seems to still linger in their home, leading her to clues. This is a quietly powerful, emotionally complex novel that will echo with readers long after it is finished. Lex's personal journey through grief and into a new life feels achingly real. Her decisions, while not always rational, are infinitely relatable. Even if her actions make her unlikable at times, it's impossible not to sympathize with her. Fans of Hand's paranormal romances may be surprised by the solid realism here, but readers will be eager to see what comes next after this novel, which is both shatteringly painful and bright with life and hope. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Hand's Unearthly series was a best-seller, and though this is a departure from her usual fantasy fare, her many fans will likely be eager to get their hands on this one, too.
