Ella Grace Banks—I’m an Army brat, so I’m numb to being yanked out of school and moving no matter the time of year. Dad doesn’t care that we were only about a month from finishing school, that it’s my baby sister’s freshman year in high school. Why would he, though? He cares more about the stupid military than he does us.
That’s how we ended up in Jacob’s Fork, West Virginia.
My very first day, I was the victim of a hit and run accident that left me in a coma where there’s nothing but dark scary things.
The reality waiting for me when I wake up is even scarier—I’m told I’m a living reaper who will forever see ghosts, and it’s my job to help them move on from the world of the living. I mean, this is not me. I’m the girl who’d rather run around in sweats, a t-shirt, and flip flops with a book in my hand than try to convince ghosts they need to cross over.
And then there’s Eli. He’s my Guardian Angel, apparently. His job is to protect me, and that means maybe even from my dad, whose military unit kidnaps supernatural creatures and studies them.
But can anyone actually protect me from a world of spooks and the people trying to harm us?
I guess that’s what we’re about to find out.
