Jade loves the house she's just moved into with her family. She doesn't even mind being the new girl at the high school: It's a fresh start, and there's that one guy with the dreamy blue eyes. . . . But then things begin happening. Strange, otherworldly things. Jade's little brother claims to see a glimmering girl in his room. Jade's jewelry gets moved around, as if by an invisible hand. Kids at school whisper behind her back like they know something she doesn't.Soon, Jade must face an impossible fact: that her perfect house is haunted. Haunted by a ghost who's seeking not just vengeance, but the truth. The ghost of a girl who ruled Jade's school -- until her untimely death last year. It's up to Jade to put the pieces together before her own life is at stake. As Jade investigates the mystery, she discovers that her new friends in town have more than a few deep, dark secrets. But is one of them a murderer?
Doesn't the cover for The Dead and Buried fit the book description oh so accurately? I sure think so! I absolutely LOVE how it's dark, creepy and already has you wanting to hide under the covers with fright! I seriously can't stop staring at it because it's just too awesome.
It also doesn't hurt that I'm a huge fan of Kim Harrington's Clarity and its sequel, Perception, so I'm sure I'll be loving her latest YA novel. The Dead and Buried is most definitely a thriller I won't be missing out on reading!
