The Dead Sister

by Leah R Cutter

Shawna knows all the trees in her mom and dad's orchard. And she knows every inch of that border between land and swamp—she can see it better than anyone else. Even her twin sister Rowan.

But only Shawna sees the lights that mark the edge.

Stepping across the border would land Shawna in trouble, though curiosity consumes her and she would love to know what lies beyond

When tricksy reeds confuse Shawna and she blunders into the swamp, she ends up far worse than she feared.

But dying only starts her adventure.

If you enjoy cozy horror mingled with young adult fantasy, take a chance on this wildly creative novella and find out what really lies beneath the surface of the forbidding swamp.
