The summer before Troy Stotts turns seventeen, his mother dies. Troy and his father barely speak, mostly communicating instead by writing notes on a legal pad by the phone. Troy spends most of his time with his closest friends: Tom Buller, brash and fearless, the son of a drunk; Gabe Benavidez, smart enough to know he’ll never take over the family ranch; and Gabe’s sister, Luz, whose family overprotects her, and who Troy has loved since they were children.

Troy and his friends don’t want trouble. They want this to be the summer of what Troy calls “ghost medicine,” when time seems to stop, so they won’t have to face the past or the future. But before the summer is over, their paths will cross with people in dangerous and fateful ways.

Troy and his friends want to be invisible. Instead, they will become what they least expect—brothers, lovers, heroes, and ghosts.

    " I think this book has a perfect first chapter. Though the rest of the book lags in a few places plot wise, Smith's characterization and creation of setting are very strong. "

    " It was pretty good...There wasn't much plotline to this book, but it had some deep thoughts. It wasn't supernatural. It had good characters in an modern-day western setting. "

    " I liked the book ghost medicine because of the way Troy Scotts had to overcome tragedy in his life. Troys mom died when he was just a mere 17 and troy had to live with his father who was an alcoholic. Troy got a job with his crushes dad to help support him and his dad. "

    " Is something wrong with me? I just couldn't get into this book. It was so "blah" for me. The writing style did nothing for me, and the characters seemed very flat. I don't know, maybe I'll pick this up later when I have time. "
