At Emory High, each student’s status as a popular Golden or Non- (Golden) is crucial, except in the case of Lilah Covington, whose knockout combination of beauty, confidence, manipulative scheming and popularity elevates her to platinum status. However, when Lilah begins experiencing haunting visions that shake her trademark sense of control, she fears that her status might be slipping. Determined to free herself of the visions, which feature grisly scenes from the past and a mysterious male spirit bent on murder, she traces them to the supernatural Lissy and Lexie James, closely tying this text to Barnes’s Golden (2006). With the help of the James sisters, the three girls use their supernatural powers to solve a mystery that is decades old. Although not absolutely necessary, previous knowledge of Golden would be helpful for understanding the events leading to Lilah’s visions, as they’re only partially addressed here. Fast-paced fun. (Fiction. YA)
