Wishlist Wednesday #7

Wishlist Wednesday, hosted by Pen to Paper, is a weekly meme that keeps track of the books that have been on you'r wishlist for a long time. 
So Shelly
Until now, high school junior, John Keats, has only tiptoed near the edges of the vortex that is schoolmate and literary prodigy, Gordon Byron. That is, until their mutual friend, Shelly, drowns in a sailing accident.

After stealing Shelly's ashes from her wake at Trinity Catholic High School, the boys set a course for the small Lake Erie island where Shelly's body had washed ashore and to where she wished to be returned. It would be one last "so Shelly" romantic quest. At least that's what they think. As they navigate around the obstacles and resist temptations during their odyssey, Keats and Gordon glue together the shattered pieces of Shelly's and their own pasts while attempting to make sense of her tragic and premature end.

It sounds kind of creepy, maybe a ghost story. I didn't really notice the bridge she's walking on until now, I just saw the photo from Goodreads and it was small. I thought she was walking on the water, but I like the cover.
