Goodreads says, "His love captivated her... his secrets might kill her. Since her sister’s mysterious death, Persephone “Phe” Archer has been plagued by a series of disturbing dreams. Determined to find out what happened to her sister, Phe enrolls at Devenish Prep in Shadow Hills, Massachusetts—the subject of her sister’s final diary entry. After stepping on campus, Phe immediately realizes that there’s something different about this place—an unexplained epidemic that decimated the town in the 1700s, an ancient and creepy cemetery, and gorgeous boy Zach—and somehow she’s connected to it all. But the more questions she asks and the deeper she digs, the more entangled Phe becomes in the haunting past of Shadow Hills. Finding what links her to this town…might cost her her life."Persephone Archer, otherwise known as Phe, is a dealing with the sudden death of her sister, Athena. Her death is shrouded in mystery and Phe is trying to piece it all together. Athena's last diary entry discussed a prep school called Devenish, located in Shadow Hills, Massachusetts, many miles away from where they live in Los Angeles. Phe is also dealing with very vivid and scary dreams which started as soon as Athena died. There's nothing left in LA for Phe; her parents have checked out after Athena's death and her friendships are falling apart. She decides to go to Shadow Hills and enroll at Devenish. Ultimately, Phe tries to figure out why her sister would have referenced this place in her diary; she's hoping there will be something there that will help her make sense of everything. But once she gets to Shadow Hills, she is even more confused by its ominous cemetery and small town with weird locals that are hiding secrets. The more and more she searches for answers, the deeper she falls into the town's mysteries. Phe meets a dreamy guy named Zach, but oddly enough, she recognizes him from one of her dreams, which completely freaks her out, but she can't deny the attraction she feels for him. On top of it, she is starting to realizes that the townspeople, including Zach, posses some unusual abilities, which makes Shadow Hills even more creepy. Anastasia Hopcus' debut novel, Shadow Hills, is definitely a paranormal page-ripper, but what makes it so different than the other novels in its genre is the fact that there are no werewolves or vampires present in it at all!
