Me, the Missing, and the Dead by Jenny Valentine - ADVISABLE

Valentine, Jenny Me, the Missing, and the Dead, 201 pgs. Harper Teen, 2007. 

Language - PG (24 swears, 0 "f"), Sexual Content - PG-13; Violence - G; 

Lucas is leaving late at night after being at a friends house. To get back home safely, he goes to the cab station to get a ride home. When he goes in he sees something that catches his attention: a deceased old lady's urn with her picture by it sitting on a shelf. Not even knowing who it was, he thinks "Violet." Now Lucas is curious about Violet and thinks about the lonely abandoned urn all the time. He finds out more about the lady and knows that she is talking to him. The question is: why? 

This book was confusing at first because Lucas didn't seem to stay on one subject and he jumped between different parts of his life. But as I read on, I saw the connections and really got into the story. Now this book sits on my own bookshelf.
