“New girl Bea and loner Jonah (aka Ghost Boy) strike up an unexpected friendship that is cemented by their mutual love for a strange late-night radio show, finding a sense of community that they never get in the daytime hours. This is a wonderful, peculiar, and touching novel for everyone who has ever not quite fit in.”
— Jennifer Laughran, Books Inc., San Francisco, CA

Description


From bestselling author Natalie Standiford, an amazing, touching story of two friends navigating the dark waters of their senior year.

New to town, Beatrice is expecting her new best friend to be one of the girls she meets on the first day. But instead, the alphabet conspires to seat her next to Jonah, aka Ghost Boy, a quiet loner who hasn't made a new friend since third grade. Something about him, though, gets to Bea, and soon they form an unexpected friendship. It's not romance, exactly - but it's definitely love. Still, Bea can't quite dispel Jonah's gloom and doom - and as she finds out his family history, she understands why. Can Bea help Jonah? Or is he destined to vanish?
