"Young Eli invokes the spirit, and the mistakes, of his great-great-grandfather. In Canada Reads finalist Angie Abdou's fifth work of fiction, Eli and his parents have returned to their ancestral family home in a small mountain town; the parents hope that by escaping their hectic city lives, they will restore calm and stability to their marriage. But Young Eli unexpectedly finds himself answering for the mistakes of the house's first owner, his great-great grandfather and namesake Elijah Mountain. He meets Mary, an enigmatic Ktunaxa girl who lives next door, and together they discover that they both have a foot in multiple worlds; in doing so, they relive and account for their past lives of seduction and betrayal. A new kind of ghost story, In Case I Go is about the many ways we're haunted by the misdeeds of our ancestors."

I enjoyed reading this book, and appreciate the setting. The idea that the story presents is interesting but i often times found myself feeling like i was re reading the same thing over again, despite having read another chapter. The ending felt somewhat rushed. It felt like the idea was there but the path between home and the end was missing something.
I would try to read another book by this author.
