Madison Sabatini thought she knew who she was: an almost-sophomore with a bright future. The newest photographer on her school paper. A shopaholic with great hair and a fabulous wardrobe. Then, in a flash, everything changed.
Now she's stuck in Sandyland, a gloomy beach town in the middle of nowhere, living with her parents in a crappy hotel "suite." Instead of spending the summer with her friends at home, she's hanging out with pink-haired Delilah, an artist who works in a shop called Psychic Photo, and a skater boy named Duncan who's totally not her type. Except, maybe he is . . .
Determined to make the best of things, Madison throws herself into her one passion: photography. But when strange figures start appearing in her pictures—people who weren't there when she snapped the shots, people who are later reported dead—she begins to question everything about who she is . . . and who she wishes she could be.
Praise for SNAP: “A perfect melding of the fantastic and the very real. Madison Sabatini is a character you can feel for, worry for, hope for, want to care for—a very real girl that you’ll never forget.”
-Michael Grant, author of Gone
“Snow blends mysticism, suspense and realistic family problems into a well–tuned chiller with enormous teen appeal.”
Praise for SWITCH: “A suspenseful, mystical story that will attract fans of both chick-lit and the supernatural.”
“An electrifying page-turner—you’ll love this book.”
-Sarah Mlynowski, author of BRAS & BROOMSTICKS
