Today on my blog I have the When I Cast Your Shadow tour. On my stop there is a spotlight, review, and giveaway.
A teenage girl calls her beloved older brother back from the grave with disastrous consequences.
Dashiell Bohnacker was hell on his family while he was alive. But it's even worse now that he's dead....
After her troubled older brother, Dashiell, dies of an overdose, sixteen-year-old Ruby is overcome by grief and longing. What she doesn't know is that Dashiell's ghost is using her nightly dreams of him as a way to possess her body and to persuade her twin brother, Everett, to submit to possession as well.
Dashiell tells Everett that he's returned from the Land of the Dead to tie up loose ends, but he's actually on the run from forces crueler and more powerful than anything the Bohnacker twins have ever imagined....
I absolutely loved this book. It is so different from anything I have ever read and it has made me want to read more from this author. There was so many times I needed to catch my breath as this story is definitely twisted but in a good way if that makes sense. It definitely gives a new meaning to life after death. I can't say to much as I don't want to spoil the book but if you love books with suspense, paranormal aspects, body snatching, dysfunctional families then I highly recommend this book. And since this is my blog I am giving this book 10/10 Bloody Fangs!
Praise for WHEN I CAST YOUR SHADOW
"Tragic and engrossing, filled with nightmarish dreamscapes and menacing villains, it also treads the tender terrain of family, and the strange and sometimes dysfunctional ties between siblings. Highly recommended!" ―Kendare Blake, New York Times bestselling author of Three Dark Crowns

"Porter offers a poignant consideration of how far we will go for the people we love." ―School Library Journal, starred review

"A haunting tale of possession that explores the ghostly landscape of dreams and nightmares―but more importantly, the particular dynamics among siblings, both oppressive and redemptive." ―Kirkus Reviews
