The Taking of Jake Livingston by Ryan Douglass

Wanna add some spice to your going-back-to school experience? Dive into The Taking of Jake Livingston by Ryan Douglass as the novel follows Jake, your typical teen, who's a bit of a social outcast due to his shy demeanor and because he can see the dead. Already accustomed to his sixth sense, Jake has no issue with the lingering spirits around him until he meets Sawyer Doon: a troubled teen who shot and killed his classmates in a school shooting the year prior. Unlike the rest, Sawyer is a vengeful and powerful ghost who aims to finish what he didn't complete when he was living, even if it means haunting Jake. 


Will Jake survive? Will Sawyer complete his goal? Will Jake ever have a normal school year? If you've ever enjoyed films like ParaNormanCoraline or books like Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children, then this book is a must read for you!
