Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Kami Garcia, the New York Times bestselling coauthor of the Beautiful Creatures novels said this of Saundra Mitchell's debut novel, Shadowed Summer: "Beautiful and haunting . . . The best Southern Gothic I've read in years."

Iris is ready for another hot, routine summer in her small Louisiana town, hanging around the Red Stripe grocery with her best friend, Collette, and traipsing through the cemetery telling each other spooky stories and pretending to cast spells. Except this summer, Iris doesn’t have to make up a story. This summer, one falls right in her lap.

Years ago, before Iris was born, a local boy named Elijah Landry disappeared. All that remained of him were whispers and hushed gossip in the church pews. Until this summer. A ghost begins to haunt Iris, and she’s certain it’s the ghost of Elijah. What really happened to him? And why, of all people, has he chosen Iris to come back to?

"Tight, tense, and real--this is the best ghost story I've read in ages!"--Tamora Pierce

"One of my very favorites of 2009."--Aprilynne Pike, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Wings
