Seventeen-year-old Holly Mullen has felt lost and lonely ever since her boyfriend, Rob, died in a tragic accident. The fact that she has to spend most of her free time caring for her little sister and Alzheimer’s-stricken grandfather doesn’t help. But Holly has no idea that as she goes about her days, Rob’s ghost is watching over her. He isn’t happy when he sees his best friend, Jason, reach out to help Holly with her grandfather—but as a ghost, he can do nothing to stop it. Is his best friend really falling for his girlfriend? As Holly wonders whether to open her heart to Jason, the past comes back to haunt her. Her grandfather claims to be communicating with the ghost of Rob. Could the messages he has for Holly be real? And if so, how can the loved ones Rob left behind help his tortured soul make it to the other side? Told from the perspectives of Holly, Jason, and Rob, Wherever You Go is is a poignant story about making peace with the past, opening your heart to love, and finding the courage to move forward into the light.(release date 14th Nov 2011)


Wherever you go is Heather Davis third book and one that I really wanted to read so I was super excited to have got an ARC. All that being said I read her first book "don't cry werewolf" and didn't really enjoy it so was hoping for a much better read and i'm very happy to say Wherever you go is one emontionally packed novel with an outstanding plot and has been beautifuly writen. Wherever you go is told from the POV of the three main chacarters Holly,Jason and Rob. Holly is still trying to cope with the death of her boyfriend Rob while also looking after her kid sister as there mum works two jobs. As Holly's grandad Aldo gets to sick to live by himself he has to move in with them so now it falls on Holly again to be the adult/mum and help look after him aswell. I just could help but feel so sorry for her because of his you just want her to at least have some time to be a teenager. As Aldo spends time with Holly he tells her that a boy named Rob is talking to him but Holly does not believe that it is Rob's ghost and thinks it's Aldo's Alzheimers making him see things that are not there. I loved the Aldo and the relonship that him and Holly share with each other. Aldo ask for her help to remmeber a list he has made of all the things that have a special place in his heart. As Holly starts the list she tells only one other person about it Rob's best friend Jason he then agrees to help her and Aldo complete the list. Holly and Jason grow closer while doing the list and was so touching reading about them I couldn't help but want them to be together. Rob gets very jealous of the two of them spending time with each other and I really do feel for him as he watches his best friend and girlfriend but sometimes his POV just got on my nerves. Wherever you go is a great read with topics of death/depression/second chances with a amazing love story rolled into it and a book that will stay with me for a very long time to come. I look forward to whatever Heather Davis writes next. Favourite Quotes 1= When you grow older,you love again,and the new love feels so different that the love before feels like make-belive. The way you love changes throughout your life. Even the way you love the same person changes." 2=" All of it washed away in a tidal wave of love you see rushing towards her shore" 3= " You try to radiate your feeling because there are things you know that you want get the chance to say"
