The End or Something Like That

wpid-81casS+jUwL.jpgEmmy’s best friend Kim had promised to visit from the afterlife after she died. But so far Kim hasn’t shown up even once. Emmy blames herself for not believing hard enough. Finally, as the one-year anniversary of Kim’s death approaches, Emmy is visited by a ghost—but it’s not Kim. It’s Emmy’s awful dead science teacher. Emmy can’t help but think that she’s failed at being a true friend. But as more ghosts appear, she starts to realize that she’s not alone in her pain. Kim would have wanted her to move forward—and to do that, Emmy needs to start letting go.

    Hi Ann
    I wanted to find a way to write to you about your book “This Is What I Did”.
    It has always been hard for me to speak, and I never really knew why I should even try to, but after reading this (I couldn’t put it down for a second) I found out why. So many things are just left unsaid and undone that it just becomes this restriction on our souls, and they keep us from doing and saying what’s right. I’m an awkward, weird 16 year old girl and this book gave me strength. Thank you, for both writing an amazing book and for helping me find my voice.

      Totally agree. I was so mad. I read 346 pages. For NOTHING.

    Hey kwoolever. I’m sorry it made you mad! More of Emmy and Skeeter I’m guessing? Maybe a sequel someday.
