After seventeen year-old Sophie’s mom dies in a tragic accident, she is so engulfed with guilt and sadness, she feels like she could literally, simply lie down and die. But a few months later, on the night she and her friends experiment with a Ouija board, things begin to change in unimaginable ways. Sophie begins to hear, and then see, Nick, a boy who has been dead for two years. This story tells of their blossoming friendship, young love, and how, through Nick, Sophie learns to live again. But even in the spirit world, happiness can’t last forever. There is a dark side to this otherworldly friendship. Not all spirits are good. Sophie’s dreams become haunting, scary nightmares. And soon these nightmares become reality, and lead Nick and Sophie into a battle against this evil spirit. They must fight for her life, but even if they can figure out how to fight a ghost, Sophie isn’t sure she wants to. If she dies, she could be with Nick forever.

FALLING grips emotions and keeps the reader turning pages late into the night.


The clouds above me thickened, the sky the same color Mom’s face had been when they pulled her out of the water. As teaspoon sized drops of rain began to fall from the sky, I rolled over and pulled the beach towel over me. The rain would pass. It always did.

Some things would never change. My hand brushed the same sand, the same foamy waves rolled in, and the same smell of Coppertone was in the breeze. The world should’ve stopped, but it hadn’t. Even my own heart hadn’t stopped beating, though I wished it would.

As busy as she stays, she is most happy sitting on her sofa, cuddling with her pups.
