Description

Twin Peaks meets Stars Hollow in this paranormal suspense novel about a boy who can reach inside people and steal their innermost things--fears, memories, scars, even love--and his family's secret ritual that for centuries has kept the cliff above their small town from collapsing. Aspen Quick has never really worried about how he's affecting people when he steals from them. But this summer he'll discover just how strong the Quick family magic is--and how far they'll go to keep their secrets safe. With a smart, arrogant protagonist, a sinister family tradition, and an ending you won't see coming, this is a fast-paced, twisty story about power, addiction, and deciding what kind of person you want to be, in a family that has the ability to control everything you are.show more

A surprisingly deep fantasy nicely grounded in reality.---Booklist -Captivating.---VOYA -Pitch perfect from the title to the end, I couldn't put ROCKS FALL, EVERYONE DIES down! The characters shine in this brilliant page-turner with a supernatural twist.---Beth Revis, author of the Across the Universe trilogy PRAISE FOR THE FOURTH WISH -The truths this novel reveals are so real . . . quite an achievement.---Kirkus -Ribar has delivered fans a fun romantic read with some deliciously exciting paranormal elements while casually tackling . . . the importance of balancing power with humanity.---School Library Journal PRAISE FOR THE ART OF WISHING -Stands head and shoulders above the competition because of its main character Margo . . . a decisive, strong-willed heroine.---Tor.com -Rich with romance, magic, and action, this novel will captivate teens.---School Library Journalshow more
