My So-Called Haunting
“How many times do I have to ask you to knock?” I yelled at Mary as she drifted through the door of my room and looked me up and down.
“Thou resemblest a strumpet,” she said, staring pointedly at my thigh-skimming skirt.
Sometimes I had trouble understanding Mary’s weird babbling, but in this case I was getting her loud and clear. Suddenly, my mood was blacker than a vampire’s soul.
Skye, a fourteen-year-old psychic, is stressed out... Not only is the ghost of a sixteenth-century witch giving her fashion tips, but she’s struggling to settle into life with her aunt, and is developing a crush on the most unattainable boy in the school, Nico.
When her aunt asks for her help with a troubled teen ghost called Dontay, she's glad of the distraction. But then Nico starts paying her attention, and she's soon facing a battle to keep her love life and her psychic life separate.
As things get ever more complicated, it looks as though Dontay’s past might cost Skye her future.
It is published in September - I can't wait to read it!
