Book Description:

Lies Can Come Back to Haunt You. 

Her father died before she was born, but Ella Benton knows they have a connection that transcends the grave. Since her mother disapproves, she keeps her visits to the cemetery where he’s buried secret. But when Ella learns that her mother may have lied about how Dad died sixteen years ago, it’s clear she’s not the only one with secrets. New facts point to his death in a psychiatric hospital, not a car accident as Mom always claimed.

When a handprint much like the one Ella left on her father’s tombstone mysteriously appears on the bathroom mirror, she wonders if Dad is warning her of danger, as he did once before, or if someone’s playing unsettling tricks on her. But as the unexplained events become more frequent and more sinister, she finds herself terrified about who—or what—might harm her.

Soon the evidence points to someone new: Ella herself. What if, like Dad, she’s suffering from a mental breakdown? In this second novel from award-winning author Yvonne Ventresca, Ella desperately needs to find answers—no matter how disturbing the truth might be.




My Can't Wait Wednesday
I want to read this, it's in two of my favorite genres! YA and Thriller - YES please! I love a good YA book and the fact that it is a thriller makes it a win, win for me. It sounds really good and I want to know what happened to her dad all those years ago. I am intrigued. I must read this one. 


What is your Can't Wait Wednesday?

Happy Reading!

  11. Oh, this one sounds VERY creepy... Bad enough to have lost her father before she had a chance to discover who he was - but to be put in danger about it sounds downright unfair! I hope you enjoy this one.
