The Other Side of Dark by Sarah Smith

Monday, September 13, 2010
From the other side of dark they come. The Ghosts of the dead.

Law Walker had a crush on Katie before she went crazy. Before her mother died. Before she started talking to herself. She's always been a talented artist, but now her drawings have gone crazy too. They're dark, they're bloody, they're actually terrifying. Law wants to help her deal with it, but what he doesn't understand yet is that these drawings are real. Crazy Katie draws what she sees: dead people.

And that's who she talks to too. People who have died - recently and not so recently, in accidents, as suicide. Even George Perkins, trapped in a house that burned down a century ago. And it's ghost George who makes Law want to get to know Katie all over again. So what if his dad doesn't want him dating a white girl? So what if people think Katie is dangerous? The ghost boy is hiding a secret Law needs to know - and it's much bigger, much more shocking than anyone expected.

This powerhouse novel is about ugly histories, brave and desperate choices, and learning to se people - dead and alive - for who they really are.
