Author(s): Adrienne Maria Vrettos
Don't read "Sight" at home on your own! Dylan and her friends have been haunted by the Drifter ever since Clarence was killed when they were in kindergarten. The memory of that event haunts the friends and binds them together. Now, ten years later, it seems the Drifter is back and the murders are edging closer to the mountain community where Dylan and her friends live. Dylan has visions of the crimes but why can't she ever see the Drifter's face? Dylan can't tell her best friend, Pilar, about her visions so why does she tell the new girl, Cate? And why does Cate seem so interested in what happened to Clarence? As everyone's secrets unfold the Drifter comes closer and closer. Be prepared to be spooked. First snow's coming and he's coming too.

Adrienne Maria Vrettos grew up on a mountain in southern California, where she rode dirt bikes and made a mean double-mud pie. She moved to a picket-fenced apple town in Massachusetts for high school, where she found happiness and friends despite her lack of the apparently requisite pricey trousers and fancy car. She now lives with her wicked-talented writer/musician husband in Brooklyn, New York. Skin was published in 2006 to wide acclaim. Sight is her second book.
