With help from the hunter, her lightning-powered grandmother, and a bunyip, Aria must figure out the truth before Gio is captured. Or worse. Despite his insatiable desire for cruciferous veggies, he still is her doofus brother, and she’ll do anything to save him.

I Spy Dead People

From USA TODAY Bestselling author Jennifer Fischetto comes her debut young adult novel…

Horror movie and junk food junkie, fifteen-year-old Piper Grimaldi wishes for three things:

  1. to help her true crime novelist father solve a mystery,
  2. to settle down and make one town their home, and
  3. to have a social life, which includes a BFF and a boyfriend (even if she’s not allowed to date for another year).

It looks like her dreams will come true when on the first day in Hollow Ridge, MA, she befriends her next-door neighbor, mauls a cute boy, and spies on teen soap star, Linzy Quinn. But then the boy rejects her kiss, and Piper finds Linzy’s dead body. To make worse (as if that’s possible), Linzy’s ghost appears, in full color, and won’t leave Piper alone.

Piper desperately wants to help Linzy move into that darn light, but Linzy’s more interested in seeking revenge on all the people she believes did her wrong…including the person who killed her. If Piper can’t find her killer, she just may be the next true crime victim of Hollow Ridge.
