Fans of  "Ghost" and "13 Reasons Why" will be drawn to this story.

If you've ever studied the night sky miles outside of a city, you'll see so many stars they can overwhelm you. But what you may not know is that some of those stars collapsed long ago-and their light is fading. Seventeen-year-old Michael Carver feels like one of those dying stars after surviving sexual abuse by his uncle, but after his death, he realizes he hasn't been the only one in pain for so long.
 
The space between two worlds can hold a lot of secrets.
 
With parents who never seemed to have time for him, Michael always relied heavily on his friendship with a young girl named Noelle, and an elderly neighbor, Mrs. Eastley, who indulged his love for constellations and took him in as a surrogate grandson.  
 
But after the abuse begins, Michael finds himself estranged from Noelle, and two of their other close friends, Anna and Trevor. At the start of his senior year, he takes his own life by riding his bike into a school activity van, where his friends are the passengers. Michael dies; but in the afterlife, he discovers Noelle was also killed in the accident he caused. Before they can cross over, they each must reconnect with one another and find a way to help their friends and loved ones to move on.
