Riley Smith is a bit of an outcast — at least to the waking world. Ever since Riley was young, she’s been able to see and talk to spirits. She’s shaken to her core when she realizes that the most recent spirit to visit her didn’t die of an accident, but was brutally murdered. It’s up to Riley to get justice for this spirit and capture her killer. As if tracking down a cold-blooded killer wasn’t hard enough, another spirit visits Riley, and his name is Hayden. He’s slightly warm unlike other spirits, and causes her heart to do this weird thump-thump thing. Riley knows she’s supposed to help Hayden cross over, but will her love for him outweigh his final resting place? (EVERAFTER ROMACE, Nov., 325 pp., $15.99, 12 & Up)
