2009 Cybil Award Nominee

Madison Sabatini thought she knew who she was: an A-student at a good suburban high school with a plum position as the yearbook photographer and a future filled with unlimited possibilties. Then, in a flash, everything changed. Now she’s stuck in Sandyland, a gloomy beach town in the middle of nowhere, living with her parents in a crappy hotel “suite” and hanging out with pink-haired Delilah, an artist who works in a shop called Psychic Photo, and a skater boy named Duncan who’s totally not her type. Except, maybe he is…

Determined to make the best of things, Madison throws herself into her greatest passion: photography. But when strange figures start appearing in her photos, she begins to question everything about who she is…and who she wishes she could be.

“As in Switch (2008), Snow blends mysticism, suspense and realistic family problems into a well-tuned chiller with enormous teen appeal.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Snow’s novel is a page-turning blend of romance, mystery, and the supernatural, with the backdrop of the mortgage crisis as viewed through the eyes of an angst-ridden teen, providing a sense of freshness and currency.” —School Library Journal

“In a field rapidly being devoured by teenage girl vampire romances, Snow tells a cool, modern and scary story about a lonely young girl whose photography hobby takes a turn to the supernatural when mysterious figures start appearing in her pictures.”  —Mysterious Bookshop newsletter

“Snow . . . takes on a whole new voice, surprisingly moving and compelling, in this thoughtful meditation on death and transformation.” —Booklist

“suspenseful and spellbinding” —Children’s Literature
