    Luke left his family home in Eaton, Texas, over a year ago, and no one has heard from him since. Then his family finds out that he has just died in a car crash in Ann Arbor, Michigan. On the day of his funeral, Ellie receives a bucket list map - created by Luke, his sister Ellie, and his best friend Wes three years ago - mailed from an address in Dexter, Michigan. Accompanied by Wes, Gwen (Luke’s ex-girlfriend and Wes’s current girlfriend), and Cade (her once-almost-boyfriend), Ellie sets out on a road trip to find out what really happened to Luke. This should be interesting. The group make some stops and have a series of adventures in the towns marked on the map in question: the first real stage where Elvis performed in Shreveport, Louisiana; the Mississippi River and a fortune teller in New Orleans, Louisiana; the Gateway Arch in St Louis, Missouri; the catacombs and Monument Circle in Indianapolis, Indiana; Lake Erie in Newport, Michigan; and, finally, Dexter, Michigan, where they locate the address from where the map was sent to Ellie. Along the way, they also find out a few things about themselves, uncover secrets they have been hiding from each other, and discover the truth surrounding Luke’s disappearance. None of them will ever be the same again. The current-day story is told from Ellie’s point-of-view, interspersed with flashbacks in italics from the time before Luke left home. The relationship between brother and sister Luke and Ellie is so sweet. I especially love what Luke did for Ellie on her first day of high school. Ellie’s mother, on the other hand, is a nightmare, and we never really find out why she acts the way she does. Apart from the overuse of the phrase “scrub my hands over my face”, the writing is beautiful, heartfelt, and insightful. I found myself highlighting so many passages! Don’t miss this story of family, friendship, forgiveness, and overcoming grief. It will leave you pondering: Who are the ghosts? Those who die or those who are left behind? Warnings: coarse language, sexual references, underage drinking. I received this book in return for an honest review. Full blog post:
