TEEN: The Haunted - Jessica Verday

Release Date: 02/09/10


After a summer spent reclaiming her sanity and trying to forget the boy she fell in love with by the bridge where her best friend drowned - the boy who must not exist, cannot exist, because she knows that he is dead - Abbey returns to Sleepy Hollow, determined to leave the ghosts of her past behind. She throws herself into schoolwork, perfume-making and her friendship with Ben, her cute and funny lab partner, who just might be able to help her get over Caspian once and for all. But Abbey is never going to truly be able to move on from Caspian, and Caspian has no choice but to return to her side: for Caspian is a Shade and Abbey is his destiny. The two are tied not only to each other, but also to the town of Sleepy Hollow, and the famous legend that binds their fates - a legend whose true ending and dark truths they are only just beginning to guess...


The second novel by Jessica which picks up a few months after the end of The Hollows. Deliciously dark this title has everything that the teen female reader could want.

There’s mystery, there is a love story but with Jessica it’s the richness of the characters that makes this title. In particular Abbey, who has her own thoughts and idea’s along with idiosyntricities that make her a real delight to hang around with.

All in a great story but with the ending leaving the reader on a cliff hanger the readers will be clamouring for more and I hope that Jessica picks up sooner rather than later.
