Being The Dead Girl
17-year-old Deryn Schroeder has just been murdered and not being able to remember what happened is haunting her.
After being rescued from a spirit eater by the mysterious Aeneas, Deryn is brought to Ravenshaw Sanctuary, a haven for lost spirits. . . or so they claim.
Ravenshaw has many rules, all enforced by a descendant of the Ravenshaw family, a cranky old man who can’t stand Deryn.The punishment for breaking the rules – banishment to the in between, a world of nightmares and lost souls. Ravenshaw’s core belief: The living dwell with the living. The dead dwell with the dead.
In other words, don’t even think about going back to your old life.
Deryn may have partial amnesia from when she was alive but she’s confident she wasn’t a rule follower. With help from former classmate, who happens to be a medium, they try to piece together what happened the night she died.
But Ravenshaw is more a twisted creepy ghost town than a haven. Deryn discovers spirits are actually disappearing under the guise of being helped and she could be next . . . especially if she’s caught breaking the rules. Desperate for answers Deryn makes a deal with Aeneas who may just be death itself.
This was not the senior year she had planned.
Being The Dead Girl is the first book in a new YA Paranormal series. If you like the creepy underbelly of Stranger Things and the uncharted ghost territories of The Haunting of Bly Manor, you'll love Being The Dead Girl.
