Booklist Reviews 2018 November #2

Eighteen-year-old Eden's life is all about change. Lacey, her best friend, is inexplicably distancing herself, canceling their summer plans to work as camp counselors and, instead, starting to hang with a different crowd. And then there's Will, whom Eden has loved for four years—Will, who died in a car crash. It seems impossible to cope with the loss of both her best friend and the object of her affection. But then she discovers a high-tech outfit called In Good Company, which offers a chance to communicate with Will or at least those parts of him that he had uploaded into a complex computer program. Eden becomes obsessed with talking by phone to the disembodied voice of the simulated Will, running the risk of losing contact with real life and with Oliver, who loves her. Everett has written a not-unfamiliar love story, but what makes it unusual is her invention of In Good Company. Its service is not altogether plausible but will appeal to techies; the rest of us will stick around for the romance. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2019 Fall

Cautious good girl Eden's crush Will died suddenly before graduation, her best friend pulls away as summer begins, and her high-achieving family starts to splinter. Phoning a digital recreation of Will becomes a soothing habit but keeps Eden anchored to the past. Behind the futuristic premise is a solidly realistic coming-of-age story about Eden's struggles to face her grief and fears. Copyright 2019 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

PW Reviews 2018 October #4

Eden's longtime crush, Will, is killed in a car accident just before high school graduation, on the very night they finally kiss. When she returns Will's jacket to his mother, she is given the phone number to In Good Company, software that replicates the voice and personality traits of the departed. Eden uses the service to chat with Will, or at least a facsimile of him, via telephone. She goes to him for advice and comfort when her plans to be a camp counselor go up in smoke; when she and her best friend, Lacey, have a falling out; and when she discovers her mother cheating on her father. But Eden's continued crush and growing dependency on Will prevent her from developing relationships with real people, especially a boy she is just beginning to trust. Everett (Everyone We've Been) makes the improbable seem plausible in this novel, which is part unrequited love story, part cautionary tale about grief turning to obsession and fantasy. Ages 12–up. Agent: Suzie Townsend, New Leaf Literary. (Jan.)
