New YA paranormal release, Betwixt by Melissa Pearl

It’s finally here! The new haunting paranormal YA by Melissa Pearl! Don’t you just love that cover?

Beautiful, wild-chid Nicole Tepper is hit by a car and left for dead. But when she wakes the next morning, Nicole finds herself in bed without a scratch. Perhaps she was more intoxicated than usual, as her mother is giving her the silent treatment and her friends are ignoring her as well. 
Things take a turn for the weird when Nicole soon discovers she is actually hovering between life and death. Her body is lying in the forest while her spirit is searching for anyone who can hear her. Unfortunately the only person who can is Dale Finnigan, the guy she publicly humiliated with a sharp-tongued insult that has left him branded.
Desperate, Nicole has no choice but to haunt Dale and convince the freaked-out senior to help her. Will he find her body before it’s too late? Or will the guy who tried to kill her with his car, beat him there and finish her off before anyone finds out?
Buy Betwixt on Amazon US and UK.
Soon to be available at Barnes and Noble, iTunes and other ebook retailers.

“Penny. Amber.” I walk next to my friends. “Why aren’t you guys worried? What if Trent’s lying? How did I end up in the forest? Please, someone, hear me.”

“What if she’s not shopping?” Penny drops her books on the big library table. At least she looks a little worried.

Thank you. Finally.

“Maybe she’s run away. She’s been threatening to do it for months.” Amber pulls out a chair. “Trent did say she was acting weird last night. Maybe when he dropped her off she collected her stuff and left?”

“What’s the bet some studly picked her up and they’re now getting married in Vegas.”

Everyone laughs at Matt’s joke.

“Maybe some trucker kidnapped her and she’s locked in the back with a trailer load of livestock.” Amber giggles.

“Why would that be funny?” My voice punches out in harsh syllables.

“Maybe she’s on a bus to New York. Hashtag, Nicole makes a break for it.” Penny smiles.

“Penny, not you too. I haven’t run away.” I throw my bag on the table. “You guys!”

“Maybe she’s dead.” The table goes silent at Lauren’s casual statement. They all look at her then at each other… then all start cracking up.

“Why are you guys laughing? I’m not dead. I’M NOT DEAD.” I scream.

Out of the corner of my eye, I see a head pop up from a book and look around the room as if he just heard something.

“I’m not dead.” I yell across the room.

He flinches, lowers his book and looks straight at me.

I wince.

Dale Finnigan.

Un-freaking-believable.
