Summary from Goodreads:
A dark forest, a screaming woman and blood. These are the images that haunt seventeen year old Emma from the moment she meets Joe Castlellaw. And so much more awaits.
Emma Mathews never believed she was like everyone else, but neither did she think herself crazy. Meeting Joe Castlellaw, Henry Dearborn High’s newest student, was like waking on a cold rock in a strange place, the world bathed in liquid moonlight. Everything is different now…and fraught. Visions of a dark forest, a screaming woman and blood have begun to haunt Emma’s dreams, and not only at night. But Joe’s lonely beauty makes her float on air, and she would follow him anywhere—out of high school and through the great tree, to a world of poetry and political savagery, of magic and murder, to a life that is entirely theirs and yet unlike anything they have ever known.
Joe’s image had hung in the air in front of Emma for the whole ride. He was wearing shorts and his muscular legs pumped his bike hard up the hills. The vision made her heart beat faster, so as she approached the trail she tried to catch her breath and appear completely calm.
“Hey,” Joe called, jumping off a rock and breaking her daydream of him like a train bursting through a painted tunnel in a cartoon.
“Hey,” she said.
“Want to ride up to the waterfall?” he asked. “Can you ride up the hill?” he added, glancing doubtfully at her slightly tight jeans and ratty sneakers.
“Yes,” she said, laughing. “How do you think I got here?”
“Sorry,” he murmured. Then he took off up the trail.
More than a little obsessed with Keats and MOBY DICK and fueled by loud music and cold grey days, Mary Beth Bass is the author of young adult fantasy and romantic women’s fiction. Her debut paranormal-women’s fiction hybrid, FOLLOW ME received the Book Buyers Best Award for Time Travel, Fantasy, and Paranormal Romance.
An occasional travel writer, Mary Beth has written about Paris, Bordeaux, and Yorkshire, where she hiked the moors to the legendary setting for WUTHERING HEIGHTS and stood breathless in the parsonage room where Charlotte, Anne, and Emily Bronte talked out their stories with each other.
And if I seem a little strange, well that’s because I am.
Also loves octopuses.
