Finished Phantom Limbs by Paula Garner. I received a copy for review.
Otis is an only child, sort of. His younger brother died suddenly three years ago and it wrecked his family. And it caused his best friend and quasi-girlfriend Meg to disappear (she was sort of involved but, like Otis, we don’t know exactly what happened for most of the book).
This is a book about grieving and it’s an honest one. Enough time has passed where it’s not quite as sharp and immediate but it’s still very much there.
This book broke my heart multiple times but it’s worth the pain. Recommended.
