Blurb From Goodreads:
Spending spring break on an isolated island rumored to be haunted is not sixteen-year-old Sam’s idea of fun. Spending spring break with her uncle and his ghost-hunting film crew on an isolated island is even worse.
Her family’s secrets—and a genetic ability she can no longer deny—surface, along with the ghost of a rich serial killer who left behind a trail of trapped souls.
And he’s not through yet.
With only one chance for escape, Sam must embrace her family’s curse and close the Seam between the living and the dead. Or be lost, forever.
Want a book full of surprises then this is the one! Sam is one of the bravest characters I’ve read in a while. She’s only sixteen yet with everything thrown at her she keeps going. At times it was like watching a horror movie with the “don’t go in there” or “I wouldn’t follow them if I were you” moments. I’d roll my eyes at the stupidity but I couldn’t seem to tear my eyes from the page. It’s weird, I can read books like this but for some reason I can’t watch movies like this without freaking out lol. It probably has something to do with the visuals or something, who knows. Anyway, if you can get your hands on a copy don’t hesitate to start reading, you won’t regret it… or you will bwahahaha!
