A story of first love that catapults into a rollercoaster ride of suspense.

Hannah Priestly is an obsessive-compulsive California girl attending an English boarding school with the usual teen problems. She doesn't fit in at school and is falling in love with her best friend. But when she wakes up knowing the name of a notorious serial killer at large, Norman Biggs, her life goes from complicated to scary, and her visions only grow darker.

Rory Veer is Hannah's easy-going, romantically challenged friend and school crush. When Norman Biggs unexpectedly appears in Rory's reality, terror is set in motion. It is Rory who must acknowledge a past he has denied if the mystery is to be unraveled.

Thrust into a terrifying future, they must find a way to change fate before it catches up with them.

 

 

EXCERPT

(Hannah)

THE NIGHT OF THE Spring Fling, I went from sad girl to feeling completely unnerved. The grounds were deserted, and the air was crisp with only a blood moon hanging in the sky. Tension moved through my muscles as I stood in the dimly lit entranceway of my dorm house and wrestled with the stubborn key. A distant hum of traffic and music played that made civilization seem far away. A rustle of leaves from nearby trees and bushes made my nerves prickle. With a trembling hand, I finally managed to slide the key into the lock and turn it. It opened with an anguished creak. I ascended the narrow staircase. Each step I took felt like an eternity. My backpack filled with library books weighed a ton, slowing me down.
When I made it to my floor a rising sense of dread clawed at my insides. Then I heard footsteps.  My eyes traced a path toward the sound. A pale-yellow light bathed the hall in a faint glow, and I caught sight of a girl's silhouette slowly advancing toward me. I took a few tentative steps toward her, yet it seemed she never got any closer.
"Hello?" I said, but there was no response. I squinted to get a better look at her.
She remained as distant as ever. The strangeness of the scene closed in on me. A tiny gasp escaped my lips, and I ran to my room and shut the door… Who or what was that?
My heart was beating fast. I hated being scared and paced back and forth like a restless lion in a too-small cage. I reassured myself everything was fine. Some other girl must have gotten stuck here too. Of course… that made sense. I pulled in the deepest of breaths.  Then I calmed down enough to unburden myself of my backpack, letting my body flop down on the mattress, and just stayed in bed, concentrating on my angst.
My imagination running amok was all Rory's fault. I shouldn't have been here alone on this blood moon night. I called my brother, telling him, “I’m so over Rory Veer.”
Collin said, “I know, I know.” His voice was laced with sarcasm.

  

About R.J. Garcia:

R.J. Garcia is a bestselling author of YA suspense. She is a wallflower, and mom of two smart kids. She earned her MSW and has worked with foster children. Writing has been her other great love.

Yet growing up with dyslexia, she had a love/hate relationship with books. She loved the covers and the idea of escaping into them. Learning to read didn’t come easy. A lot of her classmates bullied her. Nevertheless, she wanted it enough and eventually became a proud bookworm.

For as long as she could remember, she thought up stories, scribbling them down on cheap notebook paper. She has come along way since then, publishing her first two novels: Nocturnal Meetings and The Call of Death with The Parliament House. Her upcoming novel, The Star Forgot is coming from Midnight Tide Publishing.
