Fifteen year- old Lucas Swain hasn't seen his father for five years. One day, his dad just vanished - and nobody else seems too concerned. Things get even stranger when Lucas discovers an urn. The ashes inside are a woman named Violet, and she has messages from the beyond to share.
Funny and sweet YA novel about a boy dealing with a father who disappears. The humor kept the mood light even while dealing with heavy subjects. There is a subplot involving the main character's ability to see ghosts, but the supernatural element never really went anywhere and the story could have worked just fine without it. The narrator has a thick British accent authentic to the character and he spoke with a nice rythm. some people might find him hard to understand. I would recommend listening to the sample before purchase.
