Praise
"Myracle effectively pairs these supernatural elements with the real-life horror of racial hatred within an insular community, and Bliss's gentle and witty narrative voice provides just the right balancing tone."
"Myracle throws in the Charles Manson Family murders, racism, ghosts, blood sacrifices and prom queens-and, remarkably, supports this outré mix with clever timing and well-placed red herrings."
From the Publisher
Annotation Murder, the occult, racism, and culture shock combine to create a compelling horror story by Lauren Myracle, bestselling author of TTYL. Abruptly uprooted from a commune when her hippie parents flee a country run by newly elected President Nixon for Canada, Bliss is sent to live with her conservative Atlanta grandmother and enrolled in Crestview Academy. There, she is confused by the back-stabbing, racist culture, and haunted by the ghosts on campus. The book is set nostalgically in the late 1960s, and the setting (complete with the Manson murders and other events), along with mysteries and some definite creepiness, make for compelling young adult reading.
Editors Note Lauren Myracle brings her keen understanding of teen dynamics to a hypnotic horror story of twisted friendship.   When Bliss’s hippie parents leave the commune and dump her at the home of her aloof grandmother in a tony Atlanta neighborhood, it’s like being set down on an alien planet. The only guide naïve Bliss has to her new environment is what she’s seen on The Andy Griffith Show. But Mayberry is poor preparation for Crestview Academy, an elite school where the tensions of the present and the dark secrets of the past threaten to simmer into violence. Openhearted, naïve Bliss is happy to be friends with anyone. That’s not the way it has ever worked at Crestview, and soon Bliss is at the center of a struggle for power between three girls—two living and one long dead.
