Francesca Lia Block, critically acclaimed author of Weetzie Bat, brings this eerie and redemptive ghost story to life with her signature, poetic prose. It's perfect for fans of supernatural stories with a touch of romance like the Beautiful Creatures series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.
After Julie's grandmother passes away, she is forced to move across town to the not-so-fancy end of Beverly Hills and start over at a new school. The only silver lining to the perpetual dark cloud that seems to be following her? Clark—a die-hard fan of Buffy and all things Joss Whedon, who is just as awkward and damaged as she is. Her kindred spirit.
When the two try to contact Julie's grandmother with a Ouija board, they make contact with a different spirit altogether. The real kind. And this ghost will do whatever it takes to come back to the world of the living.
Francesca Lia Block's latest young adult novel is a haunting work about family, loss, love, and redemption.
I will stay connected to you when I go..
Julie's life has never been perfect. But she's always been able to deal with it by seeking comfort in her grandmother Miriam's sage advice. Now that Miriam is gone, Julie's entire world is beginning to unravel—her mother loses her job and then their house, and Julie has to start over at a new school. She's desperate to discover a way to keep it all together. Desperate for a way to stay connected to her grandmother.
Then Julie meets Clark. He's clever, awkward, and slightly damaged—just the sort of friend Julie needs right now. One night, the two use a Ouija board that Julie finds in her new house, believing it's a chance to reach out to her grandmother. But when they get a response, it isn't from Miriam. And Julie discovers that while she has been eager to regain her past, Clark is haunted by his. . . .
