Jennifer Strange

book 1

When her father disappears, Jennifer Strange moves in with her estranged sister Liz in Savannah, Georgia, one of the most haunted places in the United States. When the ghosts begin to tear Jennifer and Liz's lives apart, the sisters must learn to trust each other again if they hope to uncover the truth about their family history. If they can’t sort out their differences, they’ll not only destroy the veil between the living and the dead, but fall into the hands of a rival family that wants them dead.

"JENNIFER STRANGE is a gruesomely fun, demon-infested YA romp in which two teenage sisters learn and ply the family's secret demon-fighting trade.

A promising debut."

- Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and Survivor Song

Praise & Reviews

“This debut novel is overflowing with sardonic wit and memorably feisty (and satisfyingly angry) female protagonists...It’s clear this is a story that has more to come, and horror buffs will happily anticipate the next volume.” 

- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"A mysterious, dark, and perfectly bone-chilling tale of self-discovery and seizing your destiny, Jennifer Strange is a tremendous addition to young adult horror... I couldn't recommend it more."

- Amy Lukavics, author of Daughters Unto Devils and The Ravenous
