“Ethan Wate has fallen into an impossible relationship with the beautiful outcast Lena Duchannes. But Lena has a secret that may prove more challenging than not fitting in at school. Combining the atmosphere of a Tennessee Williams drama and the bigotry of To Kill a Mockingbird, this gorgeously composed debut novel is a rare treat.”
— Krys Tourtois, Schuler Books & Music, Lansing, MI


This edition features exclusive movie cover art!
Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power, and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.

Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.

In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.
