This "graceful, captivating" (New York Times Book Review) story from a singular new talent paints a portrait of grief and the search for meaning as told through the prism of three generations of her Chinese American family—perfect for readers of Helen Macdonald and Elizabeth Alexander. Kat Chow has always been unusually fixated on death. She worried constantly about her parents dying---especially her mother. A vivacious and mischievous woman, Kat's mother made a morbid joke that would haunt her for years to come: when she died, she'd like to be stuffed and displayed in Kat's future apartment in order to always watch over her. After her mother dies unexpectedly from cancer, Kat, her sisters, and their father are plunged into a debilitating, lonely grief. With a distinct voice that is wry and heartfelt, Kat weaves together a story of the fallout of grief that follows her extended family as they emigrate from China and Hong Kong to Cuba and America. Seeing Ghosts asks what it means to reclaim and tell your family’s story: Is writing an exorcism or is it its own form of preservation? The result is an extraordinary new contribution to the literature of the American family, and a provocative and transformative meditation on who we become facing loss.

Nothing frightens a parent more than feeling totally helpless when their child reports, “I’m scared. There’s a ghost in my room. I won’t sleep there.” Onerous questions come to mind, “Is my kid nuts? Am I nuts for believing them? How can I help with something invisible? How am I supposed to fight a phantom?” For the first time, Kids Who See Ghosts provides the answers to these questions, and offers adults guidance in tackling the subject with children. The highly intuitive child is empathic, psychic, or sensitive and can see ghosts. Parental responses to such events range from abject fear, to supporting their child, being unable to act, to visiting doctors and therapists. This guide bridges the gap from mainstream to the metaphysical, providing answers and guidance. It doesn’t matter whether parents believe in ghosts to know how to help children through frightening experiences. Goode challenges readers to open their minds for the journey through ghost tales and to learn empowerment strategies for their kids. Kids Who See Ghosts includes interviews with experts from diverse backgrounds, from Dr. Bruce Lipton to Lynn Andrews, from science to shamanism, to give a well rounded perspective on our perception of the afterlife, intuition, psychic abilities, and belief.
