Publisher's Summary

"Nankani channels every teen character - whether perky nerd, cool dude, or shy girl - and imbues the adults with memorable characterizations to match their strong personalities, making this an absorbing and fun listen." (AudioFile Magazine)

"Imagine Riverdale crossing streams with Stephen King's The Outsider and you'll get a sense of this gripping supernatural mystery...Gould's debut begins as a snappy paranormal yarn and unspools into a profound story about the complex interplay between grief, guilt, and identity." (Oprah Daily)

Courtney Gould’s thrilling YA debut The Dead and the Dark is about the things that lurk in dark corners, the parts of you that can’t remain hidden, and about finding home in places - and people - you didn’t expect.

The Dark has been waiting - and it won't stay hidden any longer.

Something is wrong in Snakebite, Oregon. Teenagers are disappearing, some turning up dead, the weather isn’t normal, and all fingers point to TV’s most popular ghost hunters who have just come to town.

Logan Ortiz-Woodley, daughter of TV's ParaSpectors, has never been to Snakebite before. But the moment she and her dads arrive, she starts to get the feeling that there's more than ghosts plaguing this small town. Ashley Barton’s boyfriend was the first teen to go missing, and she’s felt his ghost following her ever since. Although everyone shuns the Ortiz-Woodleys, the mysterious Logan may be the only person who can help Ashley get some answers.

When Ashley and Logan team up to figure out who - or what - is haunting Snakebite, their investigation reveals truths about the town, their families, and themselves that neither of them are ready for. As the danger intensifies, they realize that their growing feelings for each other could be a light in the darkness

The scary story I didn’t knew I needed

Not gonna lie, I initially came here for the gay and the gay only and was incredibly surprised when I found such relatable characters and strong plot, the handling of grief is not always easy, the amount of loss and self hate got very real very quickly but the author took the time to walk us through it and it was amazing.

Eh...

This book was just okay for me. There were some parts that were basic and others that were interesting, it started to drag on, to be honest.

The story is about two gay men who adopt a daughter who has a boy named, Logan, and is a lesbian...

They move back to their hometown where teens are missing/dying. There is a mystery to solve. That pretty much says it all. It's a bit cheesy and you can see the end coming.
