Chloe Saunders sees dead people. Yes, like in the films. The problem is, in real life saying you see ghosts gets you a one-way ticket to the psych ward. At fifteen, all Chloe wants to do is fit in at school and maybe get a boy to notice her. But when a particularly violent ghost haunts her, she gets noticed for all the wrong reasons. Her seemingly crazed behavior earns her a trip to Lyle House, a center for disturbed teens.

At first Chloe is determined to keep her head down. But then her roommate disappears after confessing she has a poltergeist, and some of the other patients also seem to be manifesting paranormal behavior. Could that be a coincidence, or is Lyle House not quite what it seems? Chloe realizes that if she doesn’t uncover the truth, she could be destined for a lifetime in a psychiatric hospital. Or could her fate be even worse? Can she trust her fellow students—and does she dare reveal her dark secret?

Quotes & Awards

  • New York Times bestseller Armstrong turns her skill and focus toward a new teen-based supernatural trilogy. Readers are taken on an intense and scary ride. The story’s pace is brisk, but it is the feelings of alienation and betrayal that give this launch book its knife-like edge.”

    RT Book Reviews

  • “Suspenseful, well-written, and engaging.” 


  • “Terrifying ghosts, smatterings of gore, and diverse teen voices will prompt young adults to pick up the next in this series…Teen readers might scream loud enough to raise the dead.” 

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review) 

  • “This suspenseful novel sets up a secret underworld where some people support and help supernaturals, while others persecute them. Armstrong combines bits of horror, teen relationships, and a dash of mystery to create a page-turner. Readers will look forward to the next installment.
