Opinion

From Library Staff

We can't choose who we love...but can we choose to let go? Step-siblings Tressa and Luke have been close since they were little...and when they become teenagers, they slip from being best friends to being something more.

This was a really good book, even though some of the moments were really sad. Easily relatable too. The grief part of this book was emulated very well. It's best to read this Meet Me at the River in private because you might cry (I almost did in school :P).

"Can true love last beyond the grave? Even after his death, Tressa can't stop thinking about her beloved boyfriend Luke. She blames herself for the accident that killed him, and her family's judgment (they disapproved because Luke was her stepbrother) only makes matters worse. But at night, in secret, Luke's ghost comes to visit Tressa. Though their connection is fragile, she's determined to hold on, even if it means destroying her own life. Atmospheric and deeply emotional (Kirkus Reviews says you shouldn't read it if you're "shy about public sobbing"), Meet Me at the River is a haunting tale of love and grief."
