Summary of the Book:

When strange things start happening to local music idol Anders Thorson, everyone blames his number-one-fan, Thea. But is she out to hurt him? Or protect him?

High school senior Anders Thorson is unusually gifted. His band, Last Things, is legendary in their northern Minnesota hometown. With guitar skills that would amaze even if he weren’t only eighteen, Anders is the focus of head-turning admiration. And Thea Malcom, a newcomer to the insular town, is one of his admirers. Thea seems to turn up everywhere Anders goes: gigs at the local coffeehouse, guitar lessons, even in the woods near Anders’s home. When strange things start happening to Anders—including the disappearance of his beloved cat, then his sort-of girlfriend, and, somehow, his musical talent—blame immediately falls on Thea. But is she trying to hurt him? Or save him? Can he trust a girl who doesn’t seem to know the difference between dreams and reality? And how much are they both willing to compromise to get what they want?

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I picked this book because is had this creepy vibe and it was about music. There is this edge of mystery and strangeness. It centers around Anders Thorson and his band Last Things. Then there is a new girl that moves there named Thea Malcom with her aunt. There are rumors that her aunt is a witch. Thea seems to be everywhere that Anders is. There are a lot strange happens and things disappears. I did like that it went from Anders and Thea’s POVs. It is very interest story and I want to read more by this author.

My Rating of the Book: 4 1/2 Stars
