Nobody believes sixteen-year-old Lila Sadler, who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
Nobody believes that Lila’s sister Rose is possessed by the ghost of Katy Watkins. As Rose’s health worsens each day, the only way to save her is to uncover the awful truth of Katy’s death so many years ago.
And nobody knows what happened to Katy on October 31, 1925. Not even Katy. Unaware that she was murdered, Katy has wandered for a hundred years in complete ignorance, until the day she meets Rose and Lila.
Together Lila, Rose, and Katy must confront their demons to escape this hell. But will they be able to escape? Can they forgive the unforgivable?
No matter how good we may try to be, the truth of the matter is that we are imperfect beings with imperfect thoughts and actions. As the horror genre so unflinchingly insists, darkness surrounds us, is within us, and is one of the fundamental building blocks of who and what we are as human beings. While we might try to deny the presence of that darkness, especially in this age of using photo filters and “living my best life,” it’s resoundingly true that sometimes we will make mistakes — especially in the presence of something otherworldly.
It’s day one of GeekDis, and I am so happy to be joining the blog tour for Ask the Girl by Kim Bartosch hosted by Rockstar Book Tours. Ask the Girl is a book that has a lot of disability representation in it including mental health representation and chronic illness representation. While Kim Bartosch is not disabled herself, her son is autistic and her sister has bipolar disorder, and she is an advocate for disability awareness.
