Title: White is for Magic
Author: Laurie Faria Stolarz
What it Looks Like:
One year later. It's happening again. Seventeen-year-old Stacey Brown is having nightmares--creepy dreams haunted by the ghosts of people who have been brutally murdered.It's her senior year at boarding school, and what Stacey really should be focusing on are her classes and getting into college--not to mention the rocky path her love life has been taking lately.But even if she could ignore her dreams, Stacey can't ignore the strange letters that she's been receiving. No return address, no signature--and the same cryptic messages she's been hearing in her nightmares.What's worse is that she's not the only on having weird dreams. Jacob, a transfer student, claims that he's been having nightly premonitions of Stacey's death for months, dreams so realistic that he transferred schools to find her and stop the killer. It doesn't help that she's starting to have feelings for him even though she already has a boyfriend. But can she trust Jacob? Or will both their darkest dreams come true?
Just a thought, do not read this late at night. It's not a super scary story but somehow, the plot got me shaking in my bed. One of my favorite parts of the book, the Miss Mary Mack poem:
Miss Mary Mack Mack Mack
All dressed in black black black
She has a knife knife knife
Stuck in her back back back
She cannot breathe breathe breathe
She cannot cry cry cry
That's why she begs begs begs
She begs to die die die
Horribly gruesome I know, but I couldn't get it out of my head for the rest of the week.
On that wonderful note, this book is definitely a good read. Not recommended for late nights, but it's very thrilling. Enjoy~
