About the Book

A beautiful ghost appears to a troubled teen and shows her the heartbreaking secrets of her family’s past

Fifteen-year-old Teresa has fallen in love—with a ghost. The handsome man that she’s passed on the street a few times captures her attention, and she thinks he notices her too. But when the man suddenly appears inside her home, hovering in the air and passing through solid furniture, Teresa realizes this isn’t going to be a typical crush. The ghost is Brother Rush, a man tied to Teresa’s past, who has come to show her the ways her life has special meaning, and that her problems at school and at home are not what they seem.
