I liked “Watch Over Me” a lot. A young girl struggling with the loss of her family joins a caring community after she ages out of the foster care system. Our main character is broken but not forever. She begins to heal as she feels connected to her fellow workers on the farm and the students, the younger foster care children and the adopted ones. Although I expected the book to be much more darker than I anticipated, I was incorrect. It’s very wholesome and an easy read, with relatively interesting characters. An interesting element of the story is the ghosts. It’s told to us as a ghost story, where ghosts are real and follow us as we grieve. They are not necessarily ghosts of the ones we lost, but can be ghosts who died and haunt a location. They are kind, quiet, and innocent. It was nice to read a ghost story where the ghosts aren’t evil manipulative beings.
