Overview

A haunted house, a buried mystery, and a very angry ghost make this one unforgettable thriller.

Jade loves the house she's just moved into with her family. She doesn't even mind being the new girl at the high school: It's a fresh start, and there's that one guy with the dreamy blue eyes. . . .

But then things begin happening. Strange, otherworldly things.

Jade's little brother claims to see a glimmering girl in his room. Jade's jewelry gets moved around, as if by an invisible hand. Kids at school whisper behind her back like they know something she doesn't.

Soon, Jade must face an impossible fact: that her perfect house . . . is haunted.

Haunted by a ghost who's seeking not just vengeance, but the truth. The ghost of a girl who ruled Jade's school -- until her untimely death last year. It's up to Jade to put the pieces together before her own life is at stake. As Jade investigates the mystery, she discovers that her new friends in town have more than a few deep, dark secrets.

But is one of them a murderer?




I know, it sounds a bit cliche. New girl at school, hot guy, angry ghost of a dead girl who wants her murder solved.... I am a total sucker for these types of books though. I know I am going to be jumping all over this and need to read it! The cover is full of awesome too. I love the creepiness of the chick walking down the stairs. (And yes, I know that it is on NetGalley, and I requested it a while back *fingers crossed*)

So what do you think? What are you waiting on this week. Let me know in the comments and I will come visit you!
