Author: Richard Peck

KDL Description:

HORROR TEEN PECK

Sophomore loner Kerry is overjoyed when three popular senior girls pick her to be in their clique, until a shocking accident sets off a string of supernatural occurrences that become more and more threatening.

Amazon Description:

Kerry is chosen by the coolest clique in school and so she thinks life has finally begun. But then it seems all over when her three friends are killed in a shocking car accident. Or are they? Only weeks after the accident, Kerry receives a text from one of the girls: We’re all 3 here at my aunt’s in the city. Take the 3:50 train. B there.

Exhilarating, terrifying suspense is crossed with a thought-provoking examination of peer pressure in Richard Peck’s return to his contemporary teen- and ghost-story roots. This is a master author’s gift to the Gossip Girl/Twilight generation: his own smart, stylish, and fun take on the paranormal.
