Finalist Award in the 2015 National Indie Excellence Book Awards, Young Adult Fiction Category.


Thanks to her offbeat mother, Shade’s full name is Galactic Shade Griffin.  Having a name like that while being the new girl in school is pretty much catnip for bullies.  The summer before Shade’s junior year of high school, her mother breaks up with yet another boyfriend and moves them once again to a new town. 


This time, they move into a dilapidated old house where Shade has an entire attic bedroom to herself—at least until she discovers it’s haunted by the ghost of a teenaged boy named Brandon Yates.  When Shade’s best friend goes missing, her life becomes even more complicated.  With the help of Brandon who’s struggling with his own issues in the world beyond, Shade faces the question of whether or not she has what it takes to become a true hero.


Although this novel deals with a number of serious issues—drug and alcohol abuse, cutting, and disturbing world events—it's primarily a novel about a teenaged girl finding out who she really is and that she's capable of so much more than she ever thought possible.


Shade is a YA Paranormal Mystery novel.
