Because although the pair can change the past, the future is anything but certain….

 Since losing both of her parents, fifteen-year-old Katie can see and talk to ghosts, which makes her a loner until fellow student Law sees her drawing of a historic house and together they seek a treasure rumored to be hidden there by illegal slave-traders.

Law Walker knew Katie Mullens before she was crazy. Before her mother died. Law knows Katie’s crazy now, but she’s always been talented. And she keeps filling sketch pads even though her drawings have gone a little crazy as well—dark, bloody. What Law doesn’t know is that these drawings are real. Or were real. Katie draws what she sees—and Katie sees dead people. People who have died—recently, and not so recently—in accidents, from suicide, even a boy who was trapped in a house that burned down more than 100 years ago. And it’s this boy who makes Law want to get to know Katie all over again. So what if his dad doesn’t want him dating a white girl? So what if people think Katie is dangerous? The ghost boy is hiding a secret that Law needs to know—and it’s much bigger, much more shocking than anyone ever expected.

What are you waiting for?

Interested in the first one, I have never tried his books, but seen them around

I'm also interested in the book by Orson Scott Card. I've only read one book by him and that was Ender's Game, which I loved.

I'm waiting for a book called Banish.

Tales of Whimsy said...

These both sound really good :)

Here is my WOW :)

I am waiting for Pathfinder, too. I haven't heard of the other book - I will have to check it out!

I've never read Orson's work before but I am very familiar with him because he's my Mom's favorite author. She was excited to hear about this one when I found it. I might just have to read this one!

I'm definitely curious about Pathfinder, Ender's Game was just so awesome. And whoa, I love the cover for The Other Side of Dark...I didn't even notice the faces until now.

The question should be what are you NOT waiting for. After all I want them all :)
