The title of this book is quite provocative and it exudes a mystery and sadness that will keep the reader propelled to read the whole book and find out how things turn out for Selena Goodwin. This story is like no other I have read for a long time. It is filled with angst and it is difficult not to empathize with Selena. But she overcomes so much grief and hardship for a girl her age. And yet, it seems that no matter how much she overcomes there is more and more to overcome and some of it worse than she had to endure before. The story is about Selena, a girl who suddenly discovers that everything she knew is no longer the case. She has to adapt to an entirely different reality from the one she was familiar with. The only person she really trusts is her adoptive father. Selena is plunged into a world that she never thought existed. It is a reality of secrets, deception and death. Selena gets to the point where she can trust nobody because she is unsure if they are trustworthy. What a difficult way to grow up! This is supposed to be the best years of Selena’s life, but instead they are the most difficult and full of people who she doesn’t know or trusts. Selena is not merely faced with maturing, and falling in love but she must learn how to live in a completely unknown world. She even has to rely on people who are far from reliable. Selena was always interested in the world of the paranormal as she was growing up. But she never expected that she may live in a world that has paranormal features. This is so scary for a girl Selena’s age, yet she shows tremendous courage to endure this world and to even overcome it. I loved this book. It is a book that most adolescent girls will find quite inspiring. No matter how hard they believe their lives are, it can’t be as hard as Selena’s life is. Growing up is never easy. But with courage and perspicacity we can all overcome great odds. Reviewed by: Irene S. Roth
