Grace Walker | 2 comments Read between 2004-2006. The POV is a girl (early teen) who wakes up on the road to her home. She goes to her house, a big old house (possibly a farm), but her family can’t see or hear her. After a lot of confusions and trying to piece bits together, it turns out she is dead. Her spirit then follows her family around the house and gardens. I’m sure there was a big secret or some reveal about her death. I think she had a few siblings as well. There was an orchard that was on the property that featured quite heavily in it. I have ruled out Lovely Bones as the character seems to know straight away she has been killed, this book was very much about the girls confusion and trying to figure out what’s going on. Please help, this is driving me mad!
