Paranormal Young Adult
Releases March 8th from Simon Pulse
When Kaira Winters decided to go to Islington—a boarding school deep in the woods of Michigan—she thought she could finally get away from everything she has tried so hard to forget, including some things from her past that she refuses to believe ever actually happened.
Everything seemed great until the bodies of murdered students started appearing all over campus. The victims seem to have been killed in some sort of ritual sacrifice. And even worse, Kaira’s dreams are giving her clues to the killer’s identity.
Though she tries to resist, Kaira quickly realizes that she is the only one who can stop the violence, but to do so she must come to terms with her past. She’s going to have to listen to the voice that is buried deep within her…the one that claims to have unimaginable power…the one that claims to be an actual goddess.
But even if Kaira can harness the power within her, will it be enough to stop the darkness that has fallen over her school? And if it is strong enough, then what’s to stop the goddess from wreaking her own havoc once she’s released?
Confession: I'm a sucker for a boarding school story. Especially a paranormal one. I don't know what it is about them (maybe the intimacy of all the characters being forced to spend time together in one place?) but whenever I find one it goes on my list immediately. Plus this is set in Michigan where my parents live and I've spent a great deal of time, so that of course makes this boarding school paranormal murder mystery an even bigger winner in my book. *makes grabby hands*
