Review of When You Were Here-Daisy Whitney

I warmed up slowly to this novel for older teens, but soon I was interested and involved.  Danny's mother lost her battle with cancer just before his high school graduation.  Having lost his father suddenly a few years back and his girlfriend in the last year, his life is meaningless and he's so angry.  He journeys to Japan - a place his mother loved and spent a lot of her final years.  He meets a teen who despite appearances seems wise.  In Japan, many questions are answered and secrets are uncovered.  I was cheering for him by the end of the book.  3 Elves - Recommended
