Holier Than Thou

Author(s): Laura Buzo

Young Adult Fiction (Ages 13+)

'What do you want, Hol?' Abby looks into my eyes. 'I ...I want to know that I'm using my powers for good and - 'You want to make a dead man proud.' 'Whoa!' 'You want to put bandages over severed arteries that really need to be sewn shut. You want the moral high ground.'


 


Holly Yarkov has a boyfriend who is a gift from the universe. She has a job that fulfils her even as it wears her down. She has a core group of friends from high school. And she has a layer of steel around her heart that is beginning to tarnish. Just as she is reaching for a future she can't quite see, Holly is borne back into the past by memories of her beloved father, and of the boy-who-might-have-been...


 


Grief and longing run like veins of quicksilver through this beautiful novel, at once gloriously funny and achingly sad.
