What are other teens saying?

  • A small town, a spooky legend, MURDER, and a little bit of teenage angst. WHAT MORE CAN YOU ASK FOR?
  • The small town vibes, family history, and legacies make this such a great book full of creepiness.
  • If you’re a fan of YA, mystery, horror and thriller, this book is perfect for you. A big bonus is the setting: so atmospheric and eerie, it’s the perfect escape!

The town of Burden Falls drips with superstition, from rumors of its cursed waterfall to Dead-Eyed Sadie, the disturbing specter who haunts it. Ava Thorn grew up right beside the falls, and since a horrific accident killed her parents a year ago, she’s been plagued by nightmares in which Sadie comes calling—nightmares so chilling, Ava feels as if she’ll never wake up. But when someone close to Ava is brutally murdered and she’s the primary suspect, she begins to wonder if the stories might be more than legends—and if the ghost haunting her dreams might be terrifyingly real. Whatever secrets Burden Falls is hiding, there’s a killer on the loose . . . with a vendetta against the Thorns.

 Available in Teen Fiction.
