Bright Stars by Sophie Duffy

Book Description(via Goodreads):

Cameron Spark’s life is falling apart. He is separated from his wife, and awaiting a disciplinary following an incident in the underground vaults of Edinburgh where he works as a Ghost Tour guide. On the day he moves back home to live with his widowed dad, he receives a letter from Canada. It is from Christie. 

Twenty-five years earlier, Cameron attends Lancaster University and despite his crippling shyness, makes three unlikely friends: Christie, the rich Canadian, Tommo, the wannabe rock star and Bex, the feminist activist who has his heart. In a whirlwind of alcohol, music, and late night protests, Cameron feels as though he’s finally living; until a horrific accident shatters their friendship and alters their futures forever. Christie’s letter offers them a reunion after all these years. But has enough time passed to recover from the lies, the guilt, and the mistakes made on that tragic night? Or is this one ghost too many for Cameron?

***Many thanks to Net Galley and Legend Press for the advanced reader's copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. ***

This insomniac's opinion: 

I really enjoyed parts of this novel. It unfolded slowly and I had so much compassion for Cameron, who seemed like a really nice guy in the midst of a series of bad decisions. It was an enjoyable read with a bittersweet and moving ending. 

Worth staying up all night to read?
