really liked it
bookshelves: 2022, book-club, contemporary-fiction

This was our Nerd book club selection for October, but then got rescheduled to November due to the hurricane.

Overall, I thought this was pretty good, close to four stars so rounded up. I thought the ghost characters in the book were unique in how they existed in the home. The idea of ghosts as not just apparitions but also memories. The fact that the whole Walker family is the Hot Mess Express, but it didn't feel overdone; we know people like this.

However, HUGE content warning: the biggest one is regarding suicide. One of the characters has some suicidal ideation, and later on in the book, does make some attempts that are more detailed rather than just mentioned or glossed over. There are some others but that was the major one I would pick out for folks.
