In 1918, the world seems on the verge of apocalypse. Americans roam the streets in gauze masks to ward off the deadly Spanish influenza, and the government ships young men to the front lines of a brutal war, creating an atmosphere of fear and confusion. Sixteen-year-old Mary Shelley Black watches as desperate mourners flock to séances and spirit photographers for comfort, but she herself has never believed in ghosts. During her bleakest moment, however, she’s forced to rethink her entire way of looking at life and death, for her first love—a boy who died in battle—returns in spirit form. But what does he want from her?
Featuring haunting archival early-twentieth-century photographs, this is a tense, romantic story set in a past that is eerily like our own time.

  15. Look at that cover. It's brilliant!! I'd pick it up based on that alone but no, the premise just has to sound completely awesome too. Happy early B'day to Cat Winters too!

    For those of you enamored with the cover, I recently ran an interview with the book's designer and included some behind-the-scenes cover shoot photos:

  20. I'll be honest, when I first heard about this book I was like 'meh' but then I kept hearing things about it; very good things and now I want to read it to see what it's all about. The more I've read, the more excited I've gotten.

    So happy early book birthday! I am now super eager to read it!

  21. Thanks so much for the continued book birthday wishes!

    Jessica: Going from "meh" to being "super eager to read it" is definitely better than the other way around. :) So happy to hear you're hearing good things about it. It's a little different than most paranormal YA novels--and most historical novels--so there might be some love-it-or- hate-it reactions.
