    New York Times best-selling author Henry returns with a new mystery set in Portland, Oregon. Two days after a raucous house party at her childhood friend Tori's house, high-schooler Adele stumbles on Tori's body in a nearby park. For years, Adele has been diagnosed with schizophrenia, though she believes the truth is far more complicated: she can see the dead—not as hallucinations, but for real. As investigators try to solve Tori's murder, so, too, does Adele—with the help of Tori, now a ghost whom she can see and speak with. The truth, though? Adele's memory after the party is hazy. She doesn't think it's possible, but is there a chance the real murderer could be . . . her? And if it isn't, who is the murderer? Henry's latest offering is taut and suspenseful, with a hint of the supernatural. Her clear, lucid prose and well-paced action scenes make for a fast, accessible read with high appeal for both the middle- and high-school crowd. Hand to anyone in search of a page-turner. Grades 7-10. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
