Cam is trying to get over the death of his girlfriend, Viv, two months ago. He visits the spot where her car hit a pole almost every day. She was all Cam had, since he was injured a couple years ago and cannot play football. Now she's gone.
One time when he is visiting the site, he see's a ghost-like figure, and she knows him. She speaks to him like she is a real person, but she doesn't look real. She's Nina, and she's come through a "door" from a parallel universe. In this other universe, Nina and Cam are best friends.
I don't want to say too much about what happens, but you can probably guess that Cam is going to visit the "other" place. There are some surprises. Nina isn't entirely truthful, and Cam goes through a lot of soul-searching about his relationship with Viv.
Through to You isn't a really deep book. I think it's a typical YA book that will have great appeal to teen girls who like romance and perhaps a little paranormal twist. Through to You is well written, well paced, and satisfying.
Don't think too much, just go along for the ride, and Through to You will provide plenty to enjoy.
