"Books may well be the only true magic." - Alice Hoffman
Daughter of Isis
Sunday Elm has the Sight. Creatures from a parallel universe visit her unannounced, compounding everyday anxieties and making for strange houseguests.
After an accident claims Sunday’s father, the boundaries between this world and Other World blur without him to shield her. When Sunday meets a mysterious man with the Sight, she learns that the recent deaths of fellow Seers could be linked to something more sinister.
Together with a strange group of newfound companions, Sunday is pitched into unraveling a high-stakes mystery before her own name reaches the top of Death’s list.
ShyShy isn't normal. She has the Sight, an ability to see ghosts and creatures from the AfterWorld and beyond. If she's not normal in her universe, she's certainly an anomaly in the AfterWorld. She's the only one alive. When the teenager is trapped in a land of the dead, she discovers that ghosts are the least of her worries. Other paranormal monsters race her to the portal back to her world. Can ShyShy beat them and get back to her family, her home, to the living?
