"JENNIFER STRANGE is a gruesomely fun, demon-infested YA romp in which two teenage sisters learn and ply the family's secret demon-fighting trade. A promising debut." -Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and Survivor Song

Fifteen-year-old Jennifer Strange is the Sparrow, cursed with the ability to give ghosts and demonic spirits a body—a flesh and blood anchor in the mortal world—with the touch of her hand. When a ghost attacks her high school and awakens her powers, her father dumps her unceremoniously in the care of her estranged older sister Liz, leaving only his journal as an explanation.

Drawn to the power of the Sparrow, the supernatural creatures preying on Savannah, Georgia will do anything to receive Jennifer’s powerful gift. The sisters must learn to trust each other again and uncover the truth about their family history by deciphering their father’s journal…because if they can’t, Jennifer’s uncontrolled power will rip apart the veil that separates the living from the dead.

A fast-paced and splattery romp, fans of Supernatural, Buffy, and Evil Dead will enjoy JENNIFER STRANGE - the first illustrated novel in a trilogy of stylish queer young adult horror books with big scares for readers not quite ready for adult horror.

“This debut novel is overflowing with sardonic wit and memorably feisty (and satisfyingly angry) female protagonists...It’s clear this is a story that has more to come, and horror buffs will happily anticipate the next volume.” –The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Plenty to appeal to readers: The illustrations that help to visualize the creatures and describe the charms that protect the girls, and two determined young women who awaken to their new powers...As a first novel introducing new characters, readers can hopefully look forward to a deepening of those storylines." – School Library Journal
