Seventeen-year-old Ivy just wants life to feel normal again. But that’s hard when she’s recently lost her twin sister, her parents have uprooted the family, and she’s forced to rebuild her social life at a different high school.
The fact that her new bedroom appears to be haunted doesn’t help.
A relationship was the last thing she was looking for, but when she meets Kemp after a minor accident in gym class, she thinks she might have found someone who gets it. He understands her grief… because he’s also lost a sibling.
But their relationship is put to the test when it becomes apparent that one of the ghosts in Ivy’s bedroom is the spirit of Kemp’s dead brother. As gruesome visions, desperate messages, and long-buried secrets threaten to tear them apart, Ivy and Kemp will have to confront the ghosts of the past if they want to have any hope of a future.
