Book Review: The Dead and Buried by Kim Harrington

A haunted house, a buried mystery, and a very angry ghost make this one unforgettable thriller.
Jade loves the house she's just moved into with her family. She doesn't even mind being the new girl at the high school: It's a fresh start, and there's that one guy with the dreamy blue eyes. . . . But then things begin happening. Strange, otherworldly things. Jade's little brother claims to see a glimmering girl in his room. Jade's jewelry gets moved around, as if by an invisible hand. Kids at school whisper behind her back like they know something she doesn't.
Soon, Jade must face an impossible fact: that her perfect house is haunted. Haunted by a ghost who's seeking not just vengeance, but the truth. The ghost of a girl who ruled Jade's school — until her untimely death last year. It's up to Jade to put the pieces together before her own life is at stake. As Jade investigates the mystery, she discovers that her new friends in town have more than a few deep, dark secrets. But is one of them a murderer?
WOW!! what a wonderfully written fantasy. I loved everything about this book. If you like all things supernatural, then you should seriously give this book a try. The storyline draws you in and wraps you in a creatively exceptional world. Nothing dull or slow about this story. The main character in an interesting mix of all things dynamic! Her friends are a complete Hodge-podge of different personalities. Which makes for a very complimenting backdrop for the heroine. Secrets & betrayals give the story a good mysterious quality. I'm looking forward to reading more of this intriguing adventure.
