Christina Lauren. Simon & Schuster, $17.99 (336p) ISBN 978-1-4814-1368-8
Lucy can’t sleep, eat, or leave the grounds of Saint Osanna’s, a prep school set alongside a haunted lake and forest. She’s a Walker—the local term for ghosts—who has appeared on the school’s grounds 10 years after her murder. Lucy doesn’t know why she has reappeared, but she quickly senses that it has to do with Colin, a daredevil student who lost both parents when his mother drove the family off a bridge. Lucy and Colin have a special connection, and as they fall for each other, he learns that if he brings himself to the edge of death, they can be together for real. Lauren (a pseudonym for Christina Hobbes and Lauren Billings, coauthors of the Wild Seasons series for adults) tell Colin and Lucy’s story through their alternating points of view, but while glimpses into Lucy’s murder give the narrative a spark early on, there is little in the way of mystery, with only the romantic thread (and its inherent danger) pulling readers forward. Ages 14–up. Agent: Holly Root, Waxman Leavell Literary Agency. (Oct.)
