THE SEVENTH by S.D. Wasley

Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
Release Date: January 23

~Editor's Pick~


Sixteen year old Mimi Alston has company. No less than three ghosts follow her around, and only she can see them. At her last school, she was known as the girl with imaginary friends. Now Mimi’s starting fresh in a new town, where she’s determined to make some real friends and fit in for once. She’s ready for a normal life...except Mimi never counted on her fascination with troubled goth-boy, Drew.

When she’s invited to join the elite Gifted Program, Mimi discovers she’s not the only one at the school with an unusual talent. Maybe being normal isn’t even an option anymore.

Author's words regarding cover ~ I feel that the designer has captured Mimi perfectly – her long, dark hair, with a bit of a wave through it (Mimi considers this her best feature), and her fair skin. I also like that she is a normal size – not too skinny like so many idealised models, actresses, and even book characters!
Mimi is walking towards a lake. Without giving too much away, lakes and swimming feature heavily in The Seventh. Behind the title of the book you will see a mandala or wheel that is also significant to the story. The symbols on the wheel are an eye, a hand, a heart, a quill, a skull, a star, and a pawprint.
The mistiness of the image is very evocative, especially since Mimi is a girl who knows a thing or two about ghosts.
