After Chuy is killed in a senseless act, his ghost come back to try and make sense of it all and try and answer the questions: Why he died? Who is touched by his death? What is life? In the process of finding answers, many new questions are formed, and some of the answers are not what he expected to find. Fantastic look at what living is about. The text is wonderfully touching without being overly sentimental. This is not your average "ghost story" since so much is contained and given in the little while Chuy is in the readers life. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
