Meet When I Cast Your Shadow!

A teenage girl calls her beloved older brother back from the grave with disastrous consequences.

Dashiell Bohnacker was hell on his family while he was alive. But it's even worse now that he's dead....

After her troubled older brother, Dashiell, dies of an overdose, sixteen-year-old Ruby is overcome by grief and longing. What she doesn't know is that Dashiell's ghost is using her nightly dreams of him as a way to possess her body and to persuade her twin brother, Everett, to submit to possession as well.

Dashiell tells Everett that he's returned from the Land of the Dead to tie up loose ends, but he's actually on the run from forces crueler and more powerful than anything the Bohnacker twins have ever imagined....

I had to look twice at the cover...didn't realize no one had their legs in the boots. Cool! The synopsis made me wish I'd put this on "book I most want to read" from the scavenger hunt!

The cover is cool but the story sounds very scary cool. I don't think I've read a good scary story in a while.

I've read Vassa in the Night and LOVED it. I love the dark, spooky cover and the story line sounds positively amazing. Her writing style is truly unique and I just know that this will be both an enjoyable read and one that will leave me thinking about it for months afterwards.

This books sounds so good! And kind of creepy, which I like. I've been searching for more YA horror, or at least YA thrillers, and I'm so excited to discover there's tons of them out there, including this gem! Thanks so much for the chance!
