When You Read This

When You Read This is written by Mary Adkins. The plot summary mostly deals with the eerie modern phenomenon of the digital footprint people leave behind when they die, and who gets what kind of say over complex last wishes. The book was released in February. It's a supernatural novel that hits the zeitgeist, while also finding the space to be profoundly sad.
