Mila is used to being alone.
Maybe that’s why she said yes. Yes to a second chance in this remote place, among the flowers and the fog and the crash of waves far below.
But she hadn’t known about the ghosts.
Newly graduated from high school, Mila has aged out of the foster care system. So when she’s offered a teaching job and a place to live on an isolated part of the Northern California coast, she immediately accepts. Maybe she will finally find a new home—a real home. The farm is a refuge, but it’s also haunted by the past. And Mila’s own memories are starting to rise to the surface.
Nina LaCour, the Printz Award-winning author of We Are Okay, delivers another emotional knockout with Watch Over Me about trauma and survival, chosen family, and rebirth.

I absoluelty love these kits. A kit like this makes it 10x easier to prep for my discussion that month with a sort of guideline for what sort of questions can be asked on top of the author interviews. I also really enjoy the handouts that these kits provide. The book marks and even book related lists are great for patrons wanting more from the book group.
This bookclub kit is amazing! It's perfect to use with my bookclub and has everything I need to help make my monthly bookclub even more fun!
Thank you for this extra resource and activities! I love these!
What a helpful kit to have for this beautiful YA novel 💙
I read this book when it first came out and fell in love with it. Nina is an astonishing writing and each of her books is filled with wonderful characters and themes.
Highly recommend this kit for teachers! I printed out the kit for my students and already had a copy of the book in my class’s mini library. One student used it and was able to connect with them :) thinking of using this as a reading next school year! The authors interview was insightful and the discussion questions were great markers to critically think about the book.
