You Were Here by Cori McCarthy
Synopsis: Grief turned Jaycee into a daredevil, but can she dare to deal with her past?
On the anniversary of her daredevil brother’s death, Jaycee attempts to break into Jake’s favorite hideout—the petrifying ruins of an insane asylum. Joined by four classmates, each with their own brand of dysfunction, Jaycee discovers a map detailing her brother’s exploration and the unfinished dares he left behind.
As a tribute to Jake, Jaycee vows to complete the dares, no matter how terrifying or dangerous. What she doesn’t bargain on is her eccentric band of friends who challenge her to do the unthinkable: reveal the parts of herself that she buried with her brother.
The only reason I picked up this book is because the synopsis made me curious about Jake’s stunts and dares. They were included in the book, but not spectacularly.
I did find Mik’s POV, in the book, to fit his personality. He’s a quiet person and no one can guess what he’s thinking. His POV is in comic strip form. You can’t read his thoughts like other characters.
I recommend this book to those who have empathy or sympathy for grief and those who want to read a book that has comics and images in them.
