Overview

For fans of Holly Black and Nova Ren Suma, a gripping, hauntingly atmospheric novel about murder, revenge, and a world where monsters--human and otherwise--lurk at the fringes.

When seventeen-year-old Breezy Lin wakes up in a shallow grave one year after her death, she doesn't remember who killed her or why. All she knows is that she's somehow conscious--and not only that, she's able to sense who around her is hiding a murderous past. In life, Breezy was always drawn to the elegance of the universe and the mystery of the stars. Now she must set out to find answers and discover what is to become of her in the gritty, dangerous world to which she now belongs--where killers hide in plain sight, and a sinister cult is hunting for strange creatures like her. What she finds is at once empowering, redemptive, and dangerous.

Tense, complex, and wholly engaging, Shallow Graves is a stunning first novel from Kali Wallace.

In Wallaces gritty paranormal debut, 17-year-old Breezy wakes up in a shallow grave a year after she was murdered and buried, with no memory of what happened. She soon discovers that she can sense when someone has killedand mete out dark justice of her ownbut she doesnt want this power; all she wants is her life back. As Breezy navigates her unlife, she meets fellow monsters of various stripes and a creepy cult leader, Pastor Willow, who claims he can fix them by excising the darkness within. Writing in Breezys pragmatic and engaging voice, Wallace weaves an unsettling tale that explores Breezys strange existence, while also thoughtfully examining a life cut short and Breezys longings for what could have been. Breezys clinical approach to her new state of being is darkly humorous (she makes a list of all the ways she tries to kill herself, once and for all), but her struggle to reconcile what she has become with the human she used to be forms the heart of this bittersweet story. Ages 14up. Agent: Adriann Ranta, Wolf Literary Services. (Jan.)
