The war is over, but for thirteen-year-old Rachel, the battle has just begun. Putting childhood behind her, she knows what she wants – to prove she has acting talent worthy of the school drama club, and what she doesn’t want – to romantically fall for someone completely inappropriate. The lies she tells herself hoping to reach solutions to the problems complicating her life merely function to make matters worse. Ultimately, she finds a way to come to terms with life as it reaches an end and life as it begins.

Written by Paula Weston

It’s almost a year since Gaby Winters watched her twin brother die. In the sunshine of a new town her body has healed, but her grief is raw and constant. It doesn’t help that every night in her dreams she fights and kills hell-beasts. And then Rafa comes to town. Not only does he look exactly like the guy who’s been appearing in Gaby’s dreams, he tells her things about her brother and her life that cannot be true, things that are dangerous. Who is Rafa? Who are the Rephaim? And who is Gaby? The truth lies in the shadows of her nightmares.

  1. I’ve only been to New York once (for 12 hours) but I LOVED the vibrancy of the city. Everything was electric and there was so much energy. I felt like I was running on adrenaline the entire time I was there and could have stayed for 100 years without seeing all there was to see. Each year I make plans to go to BEA and each year something comes up to prevent me from doing so. Hopefully 2014 will be THE year for me to attend BEA! If so, you can bet your Kobo that I’ll be visiting Tundra’s booth!

  2. I love that New York is home to so many different cultural, ethnic, religious, and artistic communities that are all able to coexist in the same little area. And because there are so many people living there, there are also so many changes, ideas, and relationships waiting to flourish! It kind of reminds me of Toronto 🙂

  3. New York is exciting and and outstanding place to people watch. I loved the walk ability of the city and the library hotel near the public library the last time we were there
    I wish I were at the BEA because I really miss Canada’s book expo from days gone by

  4. I love that there’s so many awesome book-related events that happen over there. It all sounds exciting and fun! Book stuff rarely happens where I live, so I need to make it to NY one day. 🙂

  5. Having never been to NY , I would say my luv for it is based on tv, book, and travel interview images. I luv what BEA does for us as readers and reviewers. The enthusiasm for reading, the amazing book displays, author availability and publishing efforts to connect with me as a reader/reviewer, all make me luv what I know of NY !

    ty for including us armchair bea participants! my son does the movember event so the tote bag would be a fab FuN win

  6. I have never been to New York but it sure has lovely book events there, it is great to read all your tweets about the events and how much book people love to gather and share 😀 New York has it all going on!

  7. I love NYC because it is like a cultural epicenter. And there are the Lions at NYPL, and there is The Museum of Modern Art, Times Square, Broadway, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island. Yep, some iconic landmarks. The list goes on and on…and on! Thanks for the giveaway.
