Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A ghost will find his way home.

Jennie Lovell's life is the very picture of love and loss. First she is orphaned and forced to live at the mercy of her stingy, indifferent relatives. Then her fiance falls on the battlefield, leaving her heartbroken and alone. Jennie struggles to pick up the pieces of her shattered life, but is haunted by a mysterious figure that refuses to let her bury the past.

When Jennie forms an unlikely alliance with a spirit photographer, she begins to uncover secrets about the man she thought she loved. With her sanity on edge and her life in the balance, can Jennie expose the chilling truth before someone-or something-stops her?

Against the brutal, vivid backdrop of the American Civil War, Adele Griffin and Lisa Brown have created a spellbinding mystery where the living cannot always be trusted and death is not always the end.

Praise for Picture the Dead

A tour de force, a remarkable feat of visual and verbal storytelling, as playful as it is serious, as haunting as it is delightful.

-Michael Chabon, Pulitzer Prizewinning novelist

Love story, mystery, ghost story...Picture the

Dead is a gripping, gorgeously graphic novel about a girl who risks everything...Jennie's voice and the pictures she shows us bring this swift, wonderfully chilling story to life.

-Kit Reed, author of The Night Children

I loved Picture the Dead. Eerie, romantic, moody, and immersive. A beautifully illustrated gothic delight

-Holly Black, New York Times bestselling author of Tithe: A Modern Faerie Tale
