Wear White to Your Funeral
by Lisa Acerbo
Publication date: October 28th 2016
Genres: Mystery, Romance, Young Adult
Rory is your average high school senior. Or she was, until her mother banishes her to hell, also known as Trumbull, Connecticut. The small suburb with only a mall and movie theater, sure feels like the netherworld until Rory’s first day at her new school. That’s the day she meets Bowen, who begs her to join him on a class project. But when Bowen drags her to a graveyard after dark for research purposes, Rory wants to fly back home to Atlanta, or at least return to her aunt’s house unharmed and unmolested.
Nothing could go wrong, right? They talk, they laugh, and they wander among the tombstones looking for information on the local ghostly legend known as the White Lady. Then they have to run, but they cannot outrun a ghost. In addition to the ghostly woman, a half buried dead body leads Rory and Bowen into a deadly game of cat and mouse, but who is the killer? Is it human or something long dead and otherworldly?
The police are of little help, Rory’s aunt just wants her to remain safe, and Bowen, who she can’t stay away from, keeps finding ways to get her into more trouble than she has ever known. Whether breaking into a suspected killer’s house, being followed by a menacing ghost, or being stalked at school, Rory hopes finding the killer will put an end to the supernatural haunting. Before Rory can discover the identity of the killer, she is drawn into the mystery of the White Lady, which opens the door for some very real danger.
Lisa Acerbo is a high school teacher and holds an EdD in Educational Leadership. She lives in Connecticut with her husband, daughters, three cats, and horse. She is the author of Apocalipstick and has contributed to local newspapers, news and travel blogs including The Patch and Hollywood Scriptwriter.
A spooky read which is perfect for Halloween! The story follows Rory, a High School senior leaving behind her hometown of Atlanta for a creepy town in Connecticut to stay with aunt Nora while her mum is in Japan. On her first day at a new school, she meets a guy Bowen who will go on to have a big impact on her time in Connecticut. As part of a journalism assignment, both of the most work together to investigate the mystery of the supposed “White Lady” ghost that roams around the local graveyard. When both of them stumble onto a dead body, they are both caught up in a murder scene where a killer is at large. Both of them take the decision to track down the person responsible but when scary things start happening, their lives could be in grave danger. This is a YA paranormal story that I absolutely loved reading from start to finish. The suspense built up well with detailed settings, the romance did come on quite quickly but wasn’t predictable. I liked Bowen’s intelligence and enjoyed seeing Rory on quite an adventurous journey. Couldn’t fault the story at all, will be reading more books by this author.
