A haunting, contemporary love story from the New York Timesbestselling author of Conversion
It’s summertime in New York City, and aspiring filmmaker Wes Auckerman has just arrived to start his summer term at NYU. While shooting a séance at a psychic’s in the East Village, he meets a mysterious, intoxicatingly beautiful girl named Annie.
As they start spending time together, Wes finds himself falling for her, drawn to her rose petal lips and her entrancing glow. But there’s something about her that he can’t put his finger on that makes him wonder about this intriguing hipster girl from the Village. Why does she use such strange slang? Why does she always seem so reserved and distant? And, most importantly, why does he only seem to run into her on one block near the Bowery? Annie’s hiding something, a dark secret from her past that may be the answer to all of Wes’s questions . . .
Why I’m excited:
To start off: what a cool cover! Simple, but so neat. Everything about this synopsis sounds intriguing to me, too. Aspiring filmmaker, seances, and mystery? Sign me up. This actually just floated across my radar, but now I can’t wait to have it.
