It doesn't occur to Nore to take the dream-warning seriously. Her new stepmother and stepbrother seem nice. But why does Nore feel so uneasy around them?

Maybe she should have listened . . .

It's summertime and 17 year old Nore Robbins travels to Shadow Grove for the summer. There she meets her new step-mother, step-sister, and step-brother. The first confrontation with the step-mother leads her to believe something weird is bubbling in the historic Berge home. But what could it be? And why does Josie always seem to throw a clue at this sinister secret by accident? Should Nore have listened to her mother when she told Nore and her father to leave the very first day?

I love this book, it is interesting. It keeps you reading on. Nore is a really bright girl and is on to something, with her step family. It is hard for her because of her feeling for her step brother. But there is something she just can not get over. Nore feels bad about thinking this way about her new family but it all changes at the river. Hope you will read this book.

This is one of my favorite Lois Duncan books. It deals with a girl coming to visit her dad after her mother's died and having to deal with his new wife and her children. She goes to her step-mother's home and right off the bat she's aware something is "off." It starts when her new step-sister mentions a circus fire she was in and we find out that there is no way a girl that age could have been there-it happened years before she was born! Pretty soon you start to realize that there must be some kind of youth serum or something going on. The books gives you all the examples of it, but you don't find out exactly what's going on till the end-and it's much worse than you'd imagine!

Spoiler alert-just when you think the step-mother's twisted, you find out she's also a murderer to keep her secret safe. She gets rid of her rich husbands when they start to notice neither she or her kids are aging! and she has to keep marrying rich men because she can't work without a social security number and seeing as she was around during the Civil War...it might raise some eyebrows when they see her date of birth!

A great book that I couldn't put down.

Nore goes to live with her new step-mother and step-sister, Josie, and step-brother, Gabe, in Louisiana. All seems well but Nore notices some unusual things. Josie talks about remembering something that was before she was even born and Nore's step-mother sometimes acts over cautious. As Nore gets more suspicious, she begins to investigate and finds a shocking truth. But how can she get someone to believe her? And how can she confront this problem?

Although this was quite and interesting book, it's not my favorite Lois Duncan book.
