Sofia is just a normal high school girl--worried about getting her homework done and looking cool in the lunchroom--when HE shows up: a devastatingly handsome new kid, mysteriously covered in decaying bandages and staring at her from the empty holes where his eyes should be.
She thinks he's just a hipster, but is there more to this handsome stranger than meets the eye?
Yes. He's a mummy.
We're not really making a secret about this. The twist is he's a mummy. It's a book about a girl who falls in love with a mummy.
There are young adult books about teenage girls unknowingly falling in love with vampires, werewolves, angels, demons, fairies, mermen, warlocks, dreamwalkers, and trolls. Seriously, there was one about trolls. It's time for mummies, dammit. It's time for mummies.
