The perfect book for classics lovers as well as paranormal romance fans, Mont’s tale incorporates the theme from The Scarlet Letter while maintaining modernity. The story is well paced, with a fantastic writing style and lifelike characters. It’s a wonderful modern take on a great classic novel.
Emma seems to have it all: a wonderful best friend, Michelle, and a loving boyfriend, Gray. But after a perfect summer Gray heads off to the Coast Guard while Emma and Michelle return to school. Reading The Scarlet Letter for class, Emma starts experiencing weird events — it’s almost like she’s seeing life the way Hester Prynne did, experiencing her mistakes and regrets, her life. Can Emma break free of Hester’s mistakes, or is fate going to make her repeat all of Hester’s errors? (KTEEN, Apr., 255 pp., $9.95, ISBN: 9780758269492, TR, 13 & Up)
