Ghostgirl (Audiobook) by Tonya Hurley | badz.info
Your day may be wrecked, but you know it was worth it. Eighteen-year-old narrator Merricat Blackwood lives with her sister Constance and their uncle in a crumbling home on a large estate outside of town. The rest of the family is dead—poisoned during a family dinner—and the remaining Blackwoods have been ostracized by the townspeople.
The arrival of an opportunistic cousin upsets the delicate balance of the home, and things begin to unravel. The book follows a group of former boarding school classmates who, summoned by an ominous text message sent by one of their own, gather to address a terrible incident from their shared past.
I read it while sitting in a sunny park one summer afternoon, and I was completely covered in goosebumps by the time I reached the last page. The story begins innocently enough, with a man taking his girlfriend home to meet his family.
