Set in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, I Will Be Gone tells the story of 17-year-old Penelope who goes to live with her aunt Josephine after her mother passes away. It’s a small town. The kind where everybody knows everybody and knows about everybody. And the abandoned mining town nearby is filled with ghosts. As the lives of the living become more and more haunted, Erin Courtney shapes a coming of age story about broken hearts, earthquakes, exorcisms, and sexual encounters.
