Ever since Riley Strout lost her mother two years ago, her survival has depended on her other family: the quirky kids she met in a grief support group at school. Jay, Kate, and Noah are the only people who understand her pain; each lost a loved one. When Riley sees her dead mother shopping in a grocery store, she fears post-traumatic stress—until Jay and Kate report similar visions. Noah, having seen nothing, withdraws. Soon he disappears, and Riley fears the worst. But the frantic search for him unexpectedly draws Riley and the other two into a mystery surrounding a centuries-old relic and the clues it might offer about the afterlife. By reaching for the ones who are gone, Riley uncovers hidden truths about those she hasn’t yet lost.

“Kudos to France for creating distinct and compelling characters that will keep readers invested in her debut . . . An entertaining mystery cleverly rooted in religious lore. The Sixth Sense meets The Da Vinci Code for teen readers. ”
“Compelling . . . [France's] characters are sympathetic and believable, and her message about what keeps people moving forward after tragedy resonates deeply. ”
“There's a terrific mystical-ghost-mystery here, but we really loved the characters in Signs of You. They're conflicted and wounded, but still passionate about their friendship, uncovering the truth and finding closure. (And there's a sweet, slow-burn romance that'll restart your heart in the best way.)”
“This genre-straddling debut novel is a palatable blend of the supernatural, the spiritual, Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code, and YA romance ingredients... The spiritual and historical elements are well balanced—not an afterthought and not overpowering this very human story of letting go and moving on.”
“The bond between the four teens will resonate with readers, as having a loving, dependable support group is a universal desire... the author notes at the end help to separate fact from fiction as well as offer options for further reading on the topic of St. Ignatius. Devastating loss, ghostly apparitions, devoted friendships, and a hint of romance combine to make this debut novel a compelling read. Readers can look forward to whatever else this author has in store.”
