Lisa McMann's Dead to You meets Kate Ellison's The Butterfly Clues in a psychological thriller full of romance, intrigue, and mystery. 

One year ago, Callie was found in an abandoned apartment, scrawling words on the wall: "I KILLED HIM. His blood is on my hands. His heart is in my soul. I KILLED HIM." But she remembers nothing of that night or of the previous thirty-six hours. All she knows is that her father, the reverend at the Church of the Holy Promise, is missing, as is Hannah, a young girl from the parish. Their disappearances have to be connected and Callie knows that her father was not a righteous man.

Since that fateful night, she's been plagued by graphomania -- an unending and debilitating compulsion to write. The words that flow from Callie's mind and through her pen don't seem to make sense -- until now.

As the anniversary of Hannah's vanishing approaches, more words and memories bubble to the surface and a new guy in school might be the key to Callie putting together the puzzle. But digging up the secrets she's buried for so long might be her biggest mistake.



c.j.'s thoughts

Things I'm nervous about: "new guy in school".  Things I'm excited about: everything else.  I came across this yesterday on Twitter because the author posted pictures of the shiny new ARCs.  The cover intrigued me and the plot sold me.  I'm not sure how real graphomania is, but it's definitely a cool idea.  Also, come on.  Girl found in abandoned apartment claiming to have killed someone?  Yes yes yes.  It's like Criminal Minds in young adult book form.  I've become a big fan of murder mysteries in young adult and I've come across quite a few good ones, so I'm excited to add another gem to the collection.  I'm also wondering if the connection between Pastor and Hannah is what I think it is, or if Dawn will defy expectation and surprise us all.  I know nothing about her writing, so this'll be a new one for me.  Anyone else read anything by her?
