I enjoyed the story of the Swan sisters. They were drowned as witches almost 200 years ago and they still haunt the town of Sparrow every summer when they take over the bodies of three teenagers and drown young men in revenge. Unique!

And I just read it is going to be made into a movie!

Where do I even start with this book? I laughed. I cried. And I still pine for MORE OF THIS STORY. Sort of like Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight meets Meg Cabot’s Mediator, this book has. It. All. The only things I did not like about this book are as follows;
1. It’s a standalone. I NEED MORE.
2. It was really sad. Like, more than the normal book-level sad. Like, PAINFULLY sad.

So basically, it is about this girl named Penny, and a boy named Bo but- actually, you can find out that part yourself. All you need to know is that there are 3 sisters who return every summer as ghosts to kill some boys for revenge. Lies and mistrust spread throughout their little town, until Penny can't even trust... herself. My review isn’t doing this book justice, but maybe you can do better than me. Read it and find out! @bookwormTAH of the Teen Review Board of the Hamilton Public Library

Such an atmospheric read! It's a page-turner for sure. I did have a couple issues with how the magical elements weren't completely fleshed out, but overall this is a good read.

One of the better teen books I’ve read in a long time. There is actually a plot, real conflict, and emotions that are not solely on the teen angst spectrum.
