A spellbinding tale about choosing your own path, the families we create for ourselves, and facing the ghosts that attempt to hold us back. Now in paperback!
In the town of St. Hilaire, most make their living by talking to the dead. And, in the summer, the gates open to tourists, those who are desperate, those who are curious, those who are skeptical, while all activity is controlled by The Guild, a sinister ruling body that sees everything.Dec Hampton has lived there his entire life, but ever since his parents died, he's been done with it. Done with séances, done with summer tourists, done with St. Hilaire. He knows he has to leave town before The Guild has a chance to stop him.His best friend Russ won't be surprised when Dec leaves—but he will be heartbroken. Russ is a good medium, maybe even a great one. He's made sacrifices for his gift and will do whatever he can to gain entry to The Guild, even embracing dark forces and contacting the most elusive ghost in town.But when the train carrying Annie Krylova, the piano prodigy whose music has been Dec's main source of solace, breaks down outside the gates, it sets off an unexpected chain of events. In St. Hilaire, there are no such things as coincidences and both boys know their lives will never be the same.
