Sixteen-year-old Yara Silva has always known that ghosts walk alongside the living. Her grandma, like the other females in her family, is a Waker, someone who can see and communicate with ghosts. Yara grew up watching her grandmother taunted and scorned for this unusual ability and doesn't want that to be her future. She has been dreading the day when she too would see ghosts, and is relieved that the usually dominant Waker gene seems to have skipped her, letting her live a normal teenage life. However, all that changes for Yara on her first day at her elite boarding school when she discovers the gene was only lying dormant. She witnesses a dark mist attack Brent, a handsome fellow student, and rushes to his rescue. Her act of heroism draws the mist's attention, and the dark spirit begins stalking her. Yara finds herself entrenched in a sixty-year-old curse that haunts the school, threatening not only her life, but the lives of her closest friends as well. Yara soon realizes that the past she was trying to put behind her isn't going to go quietly.

You may want to know:  This book was VERY clean!!  No profanity or sexual content, and very little violence or scary moments.  It will be added to our Clean Reads on Parental Book Reviews!

  1. Thank you for this review!

    I have this for review as well, I didn't get a chance to read it for my Halloween challenge but it's nice to know that this won't keep me up at night (I'm such a scardy cat)!

    I wanted to do this one for Halloween too, but am so backed up with reviews I couldn't get to it either. It would have been good, too because a ton of people said they can't handle scary books.
