"Griffin interweaves subtle commentary about social class, drug abuse and mental illness into this marvelous homage while winding the suspense knob all the way to 11."
From the Publisher
Annotation This suspenseful reimagining of Henry James's ghost story, TURN OF THE SCREW, transforms the classic into a modern gothic young adult thriller. Popping random pills stolen from her parents, 17-year-old Jamie is struggling with a broken heart, and has high hopes of distraction from a summer au pair job on the ritzy island of Little Bly. But when she stumbles on a tragedy involving her 11-year-old charge's former au pair, Jamie is swept into an eerie nightmare. Jamie starts seeing ghosts of the couple that died, it's not clear of they are really there or just hallucinations from the pills. Soon, she's investigating what really happened and finding out secrets that are best left untouched.
