A paranormal mystery from award-winning author Linda Joy Singleton―featuring goth girl Thorn from The Seer series.
Thorn Matthews is a Finder, a person with the psychic ability to find things just by touching an object. The visions she gets from objects―events and memories―are what guide her to the things that need to be found.
When Thorn locates a mysterious locket, it leads to a shocking and grim discovery. Now she’s implicated in a crime and surrounded by people she’s just met at her new school, any one of whom could be hiding a terrible secret. To clear her name, Thorn reluctantly uses her music skills to enter a school talent competition, which she suspects is part of the killer’s cover. Could one of her new friends be a murderer?

"This is a great spin-off for fans of her Seer series. A few of those characters pop into this story too. There's also some new characters: Rune, her Goth friend who has daily weird tales she shares, Amerie, her friend who happens to wear fairy wings, K.C., a boarder who is like a brother to her, and Jay, who at first seems like the typical Prep boy but reveals himself to be much more.
I'm a huge fan of Singleton. Her characters are fleshed out with strengths and vulnerabilities that make them easy to relate with." —kbaccillina
