Shadow Hills by Anastasia Hopcus
Since her sister’s mysterious death, Persephone “Phe” Archer has been plagued by a series of disturbing dreams. Determined to find out what happened to her sister, Phe enrolls at Devenish Prep in Shadow Hills, Massachusetts—the subject of her sister’s final diary entry.
After stepping on campus, Phe immediately realizes that there’s something different about this place—an unexplained epidemic that decimated the town in the 1700s, an ancient and creepy cemetery, and gorgeous boy Zach—and somehow she’s connected to it all.
But the more questions she asks and the deeper she digs, the more entangled Phe becomes in the haunting past of Shadow Hills. Finding what links her to this town…might cost her her life.
First off, how psychedelic is that cover? It's quite psychedelic. (I think psychedelic is going to be my new favorite positive adjective until I get a new favorite.)
Doesn't this book sound GOOD? Being the nerd that I am, I love anything with a history connection. And cemeteries are always fun. (Maybe that wasn't the best way to word that last sentence.) Plus, dead sisters and a prep school? Dude. Need this book NOW.
Out in Summer 2010- oh so far away.
