Synopsis:

A haunting novel about a girl who must face the consequences after her actions indirectly lead to her sister’s disappearance.

Rhylee didn’t mean to kiss her sister’s boyfriend. At least, not the first time. But it doesn’t matter, because her sister, Abby, caught them together, ran into the dark woods behind their house…and never came home.

As evidence mounts that something terrible has happened to Abby, no one wants to face the truth. Rhylee can’t bring herself to admit what she’s done: that she is the reason her sister ran away. Now Tommy, Abby’s boyfriend, is the prime suspect in her disappearance, and Rhylee’s world has been turned upside down. Slowly, Rhylee’s family is breaking—their lives center on the hope that Abby will return. Rhylee knows they need to face the truth and begin healing—but how can they, when moving on feels like a betrayal? And how do you face the guilt of wishing a person gone…when they actually disappear?






I enjoyed reading this book. It definitely kept me wanting to know what happened next. The characters were well written but I still had a lot of questions that didn't get answered. Rhylee was a hard character for me to feel sorry for. She just seemed really selfish and not very emotional when it came to her sister. The ending was disappointing to me. I did enjoy the mystery and what little romance there was. 3 stars

Here are a few of my favorite quotes from the book.

"There's a lot of things I haven't done," I told him. " But that doesn't mean I'm not good at them."

His words took us to the edge of things that involved " deceit" and "destruction"-but for him I was willing to jump.

Things hadn't happened in the best way-but they'd happened and opened up a world of possibility.





Rachele Alpine is a lover of binge watching reality TV, dogs, knitting, gummy peaches, and lots and lots of coffee!

One of her first jobs was at a library, but it didn't last long, because all she did was hide in the third-floor stacks and read. Now she's a little more careful about when and where she indulges her reading habit.

By day she's a high school English teacher, by night she's a mom and wife, and she writes dur-ing any time she can find in between!

Rachele lives with her husband and son in Cleveland, Ohio, but dreams of moving back to Bos-ton, the city she fell in love with while attending graduate school there.

She tried to ignore them. Now she might risk everything to save them.
After a summer spent in a haunted castle—a summer in which she traveled through time to solve a murder mystery—Kat is looking forward to a totally normal senior year at McTernan Academy. Then the ghost of a little girl appears and begs Kat for help, and more unquiet apparitions follow. All of them are terrified by the Dark One, and it soon becomes clear that that this evil force wants Kat dead.
Searching for help, Kat leaves school for the ancestral home she’s only just discovered. Her friend Evan, whose family is joined to her own by an arcane history, accompanies her. With the assistance of her eccentric great aunts and a loyal family ghost, Kat soon learns that she and Evan can only fix the present by traveling into the past.
