YA Paranormal Horror
Fifteen-year-old Jennifer Strange never wanted her parents to go missing, a ghost to haunt her, or a Ghost Hunter named Marcus Blackwell to tell her she is a Medium. She believes in measurable facts, not in the occult. When a ghost tears apart her Chemistry class, Jennifer must admit that ghosts exist and a spirit needs her help.
Jennifer pairs up with Marcus to find out the ghost's identity and inadvertently meets Marcus's sinister Grandmother and their family of Ghost Hunters. While she doesn't believe the Grandmother's claim that Jennifer is the most powerful Medium to ever live, one thing is clear: Jennifer can touch ghosts. With no desire to use her power, Jennifer must still help the ghost remember who he is before a wraith possessing his soul is unleashed and devours them all.
In a “Ghostbusters” meets Kendare Blake's "Anna Dressed in Blood," JENNIFER STRANGE shares dark occult themes, black comedy laughs, vibrant horrors, and forbidden love told through both Jennifer's and Marcus's perspectives in alternating chapters.
If the house is the face of a home, my grandmother’s house was an obvious mental case. I wasn’t thrilled about visiting her. My mother hadn’t even bother to ask me if I wanted to meet the stupid old bird. There wasn't a word from my Grandmother in the thirteen years since I was born. If she didn't want to meet me, I wanted nothing to do with her.
“Be polite Marcus,” Mom warned.
“Why?” I yawned. “I shouldn’t have to. Why are we even bothering to come here?”
“Grandmother Miriam wants to meet you. You should be excited.”
I rolled my eyes at her.
Mom shook her head in disgust and said nothing. I knew she was pissed, but I didn’t care. I was tired of Mom always changing the subject when I asked about her past, my Grandma, and the photo of the house on Blackwell Mountain.
