Ghosts: Yara


A young woman exits a room from down the hall.

umm, excuse me, miss you call out.

She turns.

Hi, I'm a guest of Dr. Viiiii and I've been abandoned by Igor. Any idea where I can find him?

hmmm, well I heard shuffling going up this set of stairs which is where I was heading. Care to join me?

Yes, thanks.

As you ascend the stairs, Yara, fills you in on her story...

by Lani Woodland

Description from the amazon:
Sixteen-year-old Yara Silva has always known that ghosts walk alongside the living. Her grandma, like the other females in her family, is a Waker, someone who can see and communicate with ghosts.

Yara grew up watching her grandmother taunted and scorned for this unusual ability and doesn't want that to be her future. She has been dreading the day when she too would see ghosts, and is relieved that the usually dominant Waker gene seems to have skipped her, letting her live a normal teenage life.

However, all that changes for Yara on her first day at her elite boarding school when she discovers the gene was only lying dormant.

She witnesses a dark mist attack Brent, a handsome fellow student, and rushes to his rescue. Her act of heroism draws the mist's attention, and the dark spirit begins stalking her.

Yara finds herself entrenched in a sixty-year-old curse that haunts the school, threatening not only her life, but the lives of her closest friends as well.

Yara soon realizes that the past she was trying to put behind her isn't going to go quietly.
