TITLE: MY SISTER'S REAPER
GENRE: YA Paranormal
Sixteen-year-old Zadie’s first mistake was telling the boy she liked she could bring her dead sister back to life. Her second mistake was actually doing it. When Zadie accidentally messes with the Reaper’s Rite that should have claimed her sister Mara, things go horribly wrong. Mara isn’t the same anymore—Zadie isn’t even sure she’s completely human. And now Zadie must figure out how to defeat her sister’s Reaper or let Mara die … this time for good.
I didn’t know what scared me more, sneaking out to crash a graveyard party at midnight or knowing that Gavin was going to be there. Wriggling through the crawlspace someone had cut into the chain link fence surrounding the cemetery, I fought off nausea and focused on not making too much noise.
“Ow!” Naomi, on the other hand, was not as discreet. “Watch it, Zadie.”
“Sorry,” I said, realizing I had let a branch smack her in the face as she crawled behind me.
When I was able to get to my feet, I extended a hand to help her up. We followed the voices and flickers of light that fell across the faces of headstones. My skin prickled at the thought of some poor soul’s grave being used as a fire pit.
I heard Gavin’s voice and clenched my stomach to stop it from churning. As soon as I spotted him, I sucked in a breath, self-consciously smoothing my hair. It took all I had to hold myself together when Gavin’s eyes met mine.
“What are they doing here?” The cold glance Emily Broding—Miss High and Mighty herself—gave me almost made me wince.
“There’s no guest list.” Gavin shifted the wood in the fire. “Grab a seat.”
“Cool, thanks,” Naomi said.
“Zadie, right?” he asked. Shocked that he actually knew my name, the only response I could offer was a curt nod.
Gavin’s best friend Danny gave me a quizzical look. “You’re Mara’s sister, right? Is she still in a coma?”
