Megan has been haunted by the ghost of her twin sister, Remy, since the accident nine years ago. Megan doesn’t want anyone to think she’s crazy, so she keeps this little “talent” to herself. But when she meets Luke at her summer job and discovers he can see ghosts too, she’s thrilled. Finally, someone who can relate...and, even better, can possibly help Remy move on. Megan’s not even worried about the fact that Luke’s supercute and nice, because of course she’s totally into her boyfriend (even though he’s been spending way too much time with another girl). And she definitely didn’t mean to kiss Luke (especially since her friend has a thing for him). Messy much?
But when the visions Remy haunts Megan with get crazy violent, Megan must turn to Luke to figure out what her twin is trying to say. Because someone’s definitely in danger...she’s just not sure who.
Finding inspiration in classic fairy tales, Marrone (Revealers) crafts a creepy and thoroughly captivating story of love and jealousy. Megan takes a summer job at Land of Enchantment, the local fairy tale themed amusement park, to keep an eye on her boyfriend. Playing Snow White isn't bad, despite the weird and excessively cheery family that runs the park. In fact, it could almost be a normal teenage summer for Megan, including being attracted to hunky artist Luke, except for the fact that she has been haunted by the ghost of her dead twin, Remy, for the past 10 years. Remy is upset by Megan's working at the park, and she starts warning Megan of bad things to come, showing her horrifying visions, and even talking to Luke ("It's no big deal really. I'm kind of a ghost magnet runs in the family," he says). Marrone takes the typically complicated geometry of young love (interconnected crushes and professions of love abound) and follows the threads through an eerie mystery that readers should gobble up even while it gives them shivers. Ages 14 up.
