When four friends get together to use a mystical Ouija board, they are astonished when they come into contact with the restless spirit of a teenage girl from New Jersey, who lived her life during the 1970s. They soon find themselves wandering through the woods at night in search of her diary. However, once they begin to read it they are treated to an unexpected tale filled with unspeakable acts and heinous brutal crimes. It becomes apparent that the restless soul of young Audrey Malone Frayer has unfinished business, which she needs tending to and it appears she’s chosen them to help her. In this second novel by Jason Medina, author of “No Hope for the Hopeless at Kings Park,” we are treated to a special story that ties an adolescent girl’s troubled times of the 1970s with the lives of four young people in the present, particularly the character named Jay, who feels especially attached to Audrey’s spirit. Somehow he forms a bond with her, while reading her diary, which takes control of him making him obsessed with trying to help her take care of her unfinished business. He feels like there is a connection between them that he cannot ignore, although the meaning of that connection remains a mystery to him. It begins to haunt him almost immediately from the moment he first made contact with her spirit. Will he be able to figure out the connections between the past and the present in time, before it is too late? Someone’s life may very well depend upon it and it could be his own!
About the Author
Jason was born in April of 1971 and raised in the Bronx, New York. He lived with his parents on the second floor of a three family house surrounded by family both upstairs and downstairs from him. Ever since he was a small child Jason always had an interest in telling stories. He wrote his very first comic book-style story at the age of five in his parents’ bedroom, while he watched television. It was the first of an ongoing science fiction story based on short hairy fictional creatures from another world. They were caught up in an intergalactic war against humans from Earth and another race of beings. Jason went on to do over ten comic stories based on these characters, drawing the pictures to go along with the story. He even won first prize in a book-making contest, while in the third grade.
