Overview

Something is haunting Megan...

She had seen Scarborough House only in her dreams. Now Megan was here, visiting the grandmother she'd never met, and her newfound cousin Matt, too handsome by far, who wanted her to disappear. Grandmother was so cold, so distant. Why did she finally reach out to Megan after all these years? And why was Matt so determined to call her his "almost" cousin? For all her prophetic dreams, nothing could have prepared Megan for Matt's astonishment when he first saw her...or the reaction of perfect strangers who looked at her with fascination—and fear...

Megan thought she knew who she was. Until she came to Grandmother's house. Until she met Matt, who angered and attracted her as no boy had ever done before. Then she began having dreams again, of a life she never lived, a love she never knew...a secret that threatened to drive her to the grave.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Launching the author's Dark Secrets series, this perkily paced if predictable tale centers on 16-year-old Megan, summoned to visit her grandmother in the sprawling Maryland house the family has owned for generations. Years before, the woman had disowned her daughter, Megan's adoptive mother, and this visit will be Megan's first meeting with her. Megan is shocked when she first drives up to the family home--she recognizes it from recurring dreams. Within, Grandmother is ill-tempered and unwelcoming, as is Matt, Megan's cousin, who has lived with Grandmother since his parents' difficult divorce. Chandler (At First Sight) lays on the plot's supernatural elements with a heavy hand: Megan hears that her grandmother's house is haunted, learns that she is the exact age at which Grandmother's sister and rival, Avril, mysteriously died and--one night after hearing a voice introducing itself as Avril--sees an apparition of a girl in a mirror and then a vision of herself (or is it Avril?) lying in her bed, dead. The resolution of the plot, which involves reincarnation, may be sufficiently far-flung to put off some readers, but most are likely to find Chandler's easygoing yet tight writing style worth the journey out there. Ages 11-14. (Oct.) FYI: Elizabeth Chandler is the pen name of picture book author M.C. Helldorfer. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.

Megan is invited to spend her school vacation with her grandmother, whom she has never met, at Scarborough House. When Megan arrives she discovers that she has seen this same house in her dreams. She also discovers that her handsome cousin Matt also lives at Scarborough House. But both Matt and her grandmother treat Megan coldly, like she does not belong to their family. Her grandmother constantly tells her what she can and cannot do and Matt refuses to befriend her in any way. Being at Scarborough House becomes difficult, but Megan is determined to get some answers to the strange happenings there before she packs up and goes home. Why does she wake up in her grandmother's dead sister's bedroom? Why does she see a shadow of a ghost in her room? And why does she get blamed when some of her grandmother's possessions are missing? Megan's vacation only gets stranger and stranger as she tries to piece together what is happening at Scarborough House and the truth about the strange death of her grandmother's sister. Chandler has created a story line thick with intriguing characters. Readers will feel energized by Megan's feistiness and unwillingness to give in to the people around her. Chandler also entwines elements of the paranormal to draw in the reader. This is a great book to help teach elements of suspense and how to build a story through rising action and climax. Readers who liked Kathryn Reiss' Time Windows will love this! (Dark Secrets). KLIATT Codes: JS—Recommended for junior and senior high school students. 2000, Pocket Books/Archway, 182p, 18cm, $4.99. Ages 13 to 18. Reviewer: Shaunna S. Silva; Teacher, St. James Sch., Biddeford, ME January 2001 (Vol. 35 No. 1)
School Library Journal
Gr 6-9-Megan isn't looking forward to visiting her mother's mother, who has summoned her. Helen Barnes's coolness toward her granddaughter goes beyond the fact that Megan was adopted. As the days pass, strange dreams haunt the teen and give way to uncanny placements of household objects that had been removed or abandoned years ago. Megan struggles with many things: her physical attraction to her cousin; the feeling that she had lived in this forbidding house before; and the fact that her grandmother grows more hostile with each day. The girl's uneasiness bursts into fear as she discovers that she is destined to repeat the tragic incident that killed her grandmother's younger sister many years before. The author blends reality and the supernatural into an engaging suspense novel. Each character, both primary and supporting, continues to develop throughout the story, and the true murderer is not revealed until the end. Carefully drawn chapters bring readers into Megan's mystery and leave them satisfied at the end. A good choice for teens who enjoy a blend of mystery, suspense, romance, and the supernatural.-Jana R.

    ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS I'VE EVER READ! WORTH STAYING UP LATE READING BY FLASHLIGHT!

    I can't tell you how exciting this book was. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. One day it took me to read. I actually found it here randomly searching books in the genre. I wanted a good read. It wasn't very challenging because my reading level is higher than others i have read. I felt like I was, or was with Megan when she got off the plane, found Avril's grave, drank Mrs. Riley's 'special' tea. It was indeed one of my favorite books. You could reread it over and over again and still be caught up in it. Sometimes I mix music and reading, but I got so caught up I would stop for a sec and find out that I was five or six songs ahead of the one I last heard. It mixes a great mystery, and a little romance. None of those 'hard-boiled detectives' but the great type of suspense that makes you jump when someone taps you on the shoulder while reading. I loved it. I was so happy when Megan and Matt finally realized that they were going through the same thing. I'm a spaz when it comes to reading so I had to stop near the end and jump up and down for five minutes. Just read the book already! Don't just sit here listening to me ramble click the 'add item to cart' button or whatever it says already and get yourself lost in Wisteria, Maryland! :D

    Legacy of Lies.

    What can I say? This book was amazing. The ending made me so happy, cause I knew that Matt and Megan should be together. But I never expected that Lydia would be the one who poisoned Avril and then Megan. Although after Matt said that she twisted everything that you told her to make it seem like she knew what she was talking about I then figured he was right, but I never thought she was that twisted enough to do all of that. I will never forget this story no matter what. Elizabeth Chandler is such an amazing author, I love her books.

    On Your Feet

    This book has to be the best book I ever read. Before I read this book I disliked reading, but when I read this book it keep me on my feet. It starts a bit slow but belive me it is filled with romance and mystery. I found my self not just reading the book but the more I read the more I felt that I was beside Meagan throughout the story. It was like I was Meagan and these things were happening to me. Such as I the moments were Meagan was scared I found my self to feel what she felt, what she thought. It all seemed so real even to the point were I could not only see the words in the book but it was as if my room became a place in the book. this book has twists and turns. You would be a fool not to read it.

    Good Book

    At first I thought that this book would be boring, but as I got more into it, the more interesting it became. It has both mystery and romance and I loved the ending, I just wish the book would of been longer.
