Publication Date: November 17, 2016
Genre: YA Paranormal
Only Bauer Grant can pull off gorgeous while dead. But staying dead is another thing entirely. When he wakes up at his own funeral, the town of Mystique calls it a miracle, until it happens again. Something is bringing the residents of Mystique back to life, but what? Presley Caine finds herself caught up in the mystery when Bauer asks her to visit him. Presley can’t figure out why the most popular guy in school is so drawn to her. And when Bauer is kidnapped soon after, she looks to Bauer’s brooding best friend Sam, whose dad works for the powerful Mystique military base, for answers. In her quest to discover the truth, Presley’s relationship with Sam deepens, her feelings for Bauer are tested, and it becomes clear that her own mysterious past is somehow connected to these strange events. But is she strong enough to handle the truth when it is finally revealed?
Something’s Going on in the Town of Mystique
MYSTIQUE is your typical New England town until, well, it isn’t. When the all-around-perfect high school boy, Bauer Grant, comes back to life in the middle of his funeral, MYSTIQUE jumps off the map. Everyone wants a piece of the boy who survived death and the town where it happened. And all Bauer wants is Presley Caine, the girl he sees the moment he opens his eyes at his funeral — the girl who has been in love with him from afar since she recently moved to the small town in Maine.
What starts as an odd beginning to a love story soon turns into a mystery of who’s died and who will not-die next. And then there’s Sam, Bauer’s best friend, who just might have something to say about whether or not Presley falls in love, or rather who she falls in love with.
Shari Arnold grew up in California and Utah but now resides in Connecticut, with her husband and two kids, where she finds it difficult to trust a beach without waves. She writes Young Adult fiction because it’s her favorite. And occasionally she takes photographs.
