Book Trailer

On a hot summer night in a midwestern town, a high school teenage prank goes horrifically awry. Alcohol, guns, and a dare. Within minutes, as events collide, innocents becomes victims--with tragic outcomes altering lives forever, and grisly and unfortunate scenario all too familiar from current real-life headlines. But victims can also become survivors, and as we come to know each character through his/her own distinctive voice and their interactions with one another, we see how, despite pain and guilt, they can reach out to one another, find a new equilibrium, and survive.

Told through multiple points of view in naturalistic free verse and stream of consciousness, this is an unforgettable, haunting tale.


Edith has blown me away! I absolutely loved this book. This story follows a group of teenagers that everyone can relate too, and that Edith did an amazing job at portraying each of their different characteristics, and their back stories. Ghosting is also a very unique story, because it is written entirely in verse, which makes it easier for readers to see the different points of view throughout the story. I also enjoyed Edith's almost care-free and creative writing style that made it easy to disgust what was going on, and who's stream of consciousness you were reading. This story had me on the edge of my seat, waiting to see where Edith would take me next. Full of action  and thoughtful realizations, Ghosting will leave readers with gratitude, and that life is better spent finding 'new now' times.
