A new paranormal mystery from award-winning author Linda Joy Singleton--featuring goth girl Thorn from The Seer series.
Thorn Matthews is a Finder, a person with the psychic ability to find things just by touching an object. The visions she gets from objects--events and memories--are what guide her to the things that need to be found.
When Thorn locates a mysterious locket, it leads to a shocking and grim discovery. Now she's implicated in a crime and surrounded by people she's just met at her new school, any one of whom could be hiding a terrible secret. To clear her name, Thorn reluctantly uses her music skills to enter a school talent competition, which she suspects is part of the killer's cover. Could one of her new friends be a murderer?
Singleton makes her home in Northern California where she enjoys life in the country with a barnyard of animals including horses, cats, dogs, and pigs and collects vintage series books like Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden and Judy Bolton.
Singleton especially loves to interact with her readers through speaking engagements at schools and libraries, as well as from their direct feedback. When asked why she writes for young people she says, "I love seeing the world through the heart of a child, where magic is real and every day begins a new adventure. I hope to inspire them to reach for their dreams. Writing for kids is a gift, a responsibility, and an honor."
