Summary of the Book:

Don’t play with dead things.

Anna Dingel is an introverted, socially inept 18-year-old raised in the family funeral home. And for some reason, her classmate Timmy—the one in the band—likes her too.

After a makeover from her best friend Naomi, Anna breaks away to see him perform live, but the leader of a bad school clique attempts to assault Anna in the parking lot. Once the leader is released from jail, so begins an ever-widening maelstrom of cruel retribution, turning Anna and Timmy’s summer of love into a nightmare.

In an attempt to frighten the bullies into peace, Anna and Naomi experiment with recently revealed old Jewish magic. But this ancient Abrahamic ritual doesn’t go as planned. The eldritch power Anna has unleashed takes dark and unexpected turns, endangering those she loves and forcing her to decide who she is and who she wants to be.

This spine-tingling supernatural horror story is about love, forgiveness, and consequences. Expect surprise twists throughout, as children learn not to play with dead things.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This book was very intense and I was so unsure of what I was getting into. Anna has very strict parents and they are not fond of her best friend Naomi. All she wants is a boyfriend and she wants it to be the guy she has a crush his name is Timmy he is in a band. There are a lot of ups and downs in this novel that kept me on the edge for most of the book.

My Rating of the Book: 3 1/2 Stars
