Cover Comments: It's not a bad cover. Simply a little plain. Or maybe it's just because I don't like the shade of green. Because I like the next book's cover more. I've very colorist. Haha.
This book is the second of the series, and while I thought the first was great, this one is even better. Sabine goes to Pine Peaks to continue her mission of finding a cure for her grandmother. With her is Thorn, who reveals to us her true personality. At least, what her aunt and uncle know her as. Meaning, not goth. I love Thorn. She's such a great character. Tough and mean on the outside, but a really good friend. Sabine herself is a brave girl brimming full of curiosity with the want to fit in. Which is a little difficult, seeing as she's psychic.
While in Pine Peaks, Sabine, while trying to find a clue for the cure, discovers a ghost named Chloe who wants Sabine's help. The ghost haunts the entire town and the story, seeking revenge. Even though Sabine wants to look for the cure, she has to solve the mystery of how and why Chloe died, and put her at peace before she hurts anybody.
This book is only 242 pages, but each page pulls you deeper into the story with its dark and supernatural elements. Read this book for a fast paranormal mystery.
Sabine can't wait to show off her new boyfriend at the upcoming school dance, but she's also worried about her grandmother, Nona, who's suffering from a fatal hereditary illness. The only cure lies within a remedy book, lost long ago.
Determined to save Nona, Sabine goes to Pine City to visit a distant relative who may have clues. But there's someone else clamoring for Sabine's attention: a fifty-year-old ghost named Chloe who's been appearing in her dreams. Celebrated by Pine City every year on the anniversary of her tragic death, Chloe has become a town legend. Despite death threats and missing the school dance, Sabine must use her psychic skills to solve the mystery surrounding Chloe's untimely demise . . . and lay her soul to rest.
