The End or Something Like That by Ann Dee Ellis
Emmy always knew her best friend Kim had a heart problem but she didn't believe Kim would actually die, until she did. Before her death, Kim made Emmy go with her to learn about the dead visiting those still alive. Together they learned that the dead are more likely to return on important days - birthdays and anniversaries. Since Kim's death Emmy has been going to their agreed upon spot with all their favorite items but there has been no sign of Kim. She has, however, seen the ghost of her mean dead science teacher along with several other ghosts. Why are these other spirits bugging Emmy and her own best friend is nowhere to be seen?
I'm still not sure if Emmy was actually seeing ghosts or not but that's not really the point of this book about loss, guilt and grieving.
