Scholastic
Hardcover, 320 pgs.

What it’s about:

Willa has been uprooted from her home in Connecticut when her mother marries a Hollywood screenwriter. Fitting in at a new school is a problem, and being partnered with the school’s social outcast doesn’t help. But this doesn’t top her list of problems. The new location doesn’t change the fact that she is still having experiences that make her question her sanity. The real issue is the hallucinations-weird visions and sounds that haunt her. And seem to be somehow connected to the serial killer that is terrorizing Hollywood and targeting young, would-be actresses.

Why you might like it:

Do you like a ghost story that thrills but won’t keep you up at night? Katie Alender is a master at writing suspenseful and spooky stories that don’t rely on gore and terror. There are plenty of pop culture references, Hollywood glitz and glam, and a twisted serial killer mystery to keep readers guessing. Some readers will also appreciate the light romance that takes a back seat to the hauntings and suspense.
