A drug addict, a ghost, faeries, a troubled teen girl, her missing friend, a messed up mom, an amulet…will Shade be the hero she created in her graphic novel?
Shade has pretty much raised herself and hasn’t done too bad of a job, considering…no father and a mother who drank and drugged herself into oblivion.
Her mother moved them again, and things changed for Shade. She met Brandon Yates, a ghost that haunted their new home. When her best friend turns up missing, they band together to figure out the mystery.
More girls go missing…
I love how Shade struggles and grows to develop. I knew a girl who cut herself and I cannot stress how upset and sad I was for her. I could not understand how hurting yourself could make you feel better. Or maybe it was just so she could feel…something.
I love a good mystery and the paranormal is a nice touch. It adds an extra element I always appreciate. The danger rises and the the mystery is darker than Shade could have imagined. I have read of what can happen to girls who go missing and I fear how vulnerable the female species is…how unprepared and innocent we can be about the evil men do.
Marilyn can spin a wonderful tale that is easy to read and contains lovable characters that will wiggle their way into your heart. I would love to have Shade as my best friend too.
Amongst the dark, there is light.
In the tragic and sadness, there is hope and love.
This book is excellent for readers 12 and above. The main character hates her name the reason is a spoiler. Her mother has moved Shade's small family consisting of her mother and herself constantly, never really giving Shade an opportunity to have solid roots. However, Shade finds people she connects with after her latest move.
Then one disappears after a night of Halloween fun with Shade. Other girls start disappearing as well. Shade and her friends are determined to find their friend and hopefully the other girls.
Shade's learning to fit in, make friends - including some extraordinary ones - is a story that resonates with truth. I truly enjoyed this book, and intend to read the rest.
The plot is interesting, which kept me skimming through the narration to find out what would happen. There are ghosts, but the don't play as much of a role in the story as the teen journalists trying to solve the case of the missing girls.
Many mature (and paranormal) subjects are brought up and handled well, everything from sexual slavery to fighting between skinwalkers and shapeshifters! A lot of research has obviously gone into each subject, which shows. I look forward to the next book, and recommend this series!
From a mother that could not fix herself, moving from place to place and from guy to guy. Blaming her daughter for not being the person that she wanted to be. To Shade having to battle with her own Demons and have to take care of her mother and the abuse of drinking and drugs that her mother put her through. She finally found a place to start settling down and making friends and becoming part of the school newspaper and forum, along with getting her first job. To run into girls from school going missing including her best friend.
From babies being sold, to human trafficking, this book goes deep and the author dose a good job with showing emotions from all angles. When reading this book you have to keep an open mind and an open heart because you will be hit with a lot of things.
