I have yet to experience the anguish of losing someone very close to me such as a sibling or a parent, so it's sometimes hard to relate to a book all about grief and healing from such a profound loss, but this book does a really good job depicting a younger sister grieving over her older sister's shocking suicide. Harper is the one who finds her sister, June, after she has died and is going on a road trip to California to scatter her ashes. I loved Harper's voice; she's a tough as nails, sarcastic, witty girl who is reluctant to have anyone get close to her. I also really loved the character of Jake who has a mix CD or a song or a band for every occasion and the underlying theme of the healing power of music.
