After her grampa dies, the last place Libby expects to see him is sitting on the edge of her bed. But that's what happens the night after the funeral.Even more surprising is that Grampa has three important things to tell her: first, that she isn't alone or forgotten-"The dead ain't never that far from the living," he says; second, that she has "the Sight"-the ability to see family members who have died; and third, that there is something special just for her in the lake. Something that could help her and her father-if she can find it.Libby and Grampa try to help her father heal from his grief, but it will take all of Libby's courage and her gift of Sight to convince her father that the dead are never truly gone.Never That Far is set in the lush, rural landscape of central Florida and is a story that celebrates friendship, hope, and the power of family love.
