Description

A timeless and romantic ghost story that will haunt readers long after the last page is turned.

When Callie's life is cut short by a tragic accident in her hometown of Charleston, South Carolina, her spirit travels to another dimension called the Prism. Here she meets a striking and mysterious ghost named Thatcher, who guides her as she learns how to bring peace to those she left behind. But Callie soon uncovers a dark secret about the spirit world: some of the souls in it are angry, and they desperately want revenge. These souls are willing to do whatever it takes to stay on Earth, threatening the existence of everyone she ever cared about.

Perfect for fans of Gayle Forman's If I Stay and Lauren Oliver's Before I Fall, this thoughtful and suspenseful novel will have readers eager to read the sequel, Dust to Dust.

Back cover copy

When Callie's life is cut short by a tragic accident, she expects to find nothingness, or maybe some version of heaven.

Instead, her spirit travels to the Prism, an ethereal plane populated by the ghosts she thought were fictional. Here she meets a striking and mysterious ghost named Thatcher, who guides her as she learns to haunt and bring peace to those she left behind.

However, Callie uncovers a dark secret about the spirit world: The angry souls that always populate ghost stories are real and willing to do whatever it takes to stay on Earth, threatening the existence of everyone she ever cared about.

As she fights to save her best friend and her boyfriend, Callie will learn that while it may no longer beat, her heart can still love--and break.

Ashes to Ashes is Melissa Walker's sweeping, romantic, and emotionally rich story about the things that torment and tempt us, even from the Great Beyond.

Review quote

"A beautiful novel about the power of love over life and death." -- Alex Flinn, New York Times bestselling author of Beastly "Intense, suspense-laden and full of surprising twists. This story will haunt you in every sense of the word!" -- Sophie Jordan, New York Times bestselling author of the Firelight series "An appealing and sometimes-poignant blend of savvy adolescents, young romance and paranormal evil suggests there's no escaping teen drama-even in the afterlife." -- Kirkus Reviews "Walker infuses standard romance with larger issues of mortality, afterlife, forgiveness, and morality." -- Booklist
