Some secrets are better off staying buried.
Punk, blue-haired “Blue” Shaefer, is at odds with her workaholic single mother. Raised as a city girl in a suburb of Indianapolis, Blue must abandon the life she knows when her unfeeling mother moves them to a dreadful small town. Blue befriends the only student willing to talk to her: computer nerd “Chip” Farren.
Chip knows the connection between the rickety pirate boat ride at the local amusement park and the missing money from an infamous bank heist the townspeople still talk about. When Blue helps him recover the treasure, they awaken a vengeful ghost who’ll stop at nothing--even murder--to prevent them from exposing the truth behind his evil deeds.
Haunting Blue will excite readers who enjoy contemporary ghost stories featuring a hard-edged, sassy teenage heroine. Those who miss Buffy the Vampire Slayer will love Haunting Blue.
Chip clasped the moneybag against his chest. “Blue, it’s Gunther.” I sized up the would-be con artist. “So, you’re the guy wandering around pretending to be a dead man.” Chip’s eyes stared, riveted forward.
“Take it back, Chip. Take the money back now and bury it.”
I withdrew my switchblade. “All right, you sick fuck.”
The stranger glared at me for the first time. A cruel smirk crossed his features. I met his look with a threatening one of my own. “Last chance.” He shrugged, obviously unconcerned, and continued to approach. His arrogance set me off.
I intended to tackle him at the knees and knock him out of the way. The wind caught me, and I fell through him, flailing my arms. I landed hard on the grass, my accumulated bruises crying out in fresh pain.
Sprawled on the ground, my mind reeled.
I just tried to tackle a ghost.
