Megan just wants to make sure that her new boyfriend, Ryan, stays out of the clutches of his smitten best friend, Samantha.

But when the ghost of her twin sister, Remy, begins to show up more and more, forcing gruesome visions on Megan, she is not sure how long she will last. Luckily, her co-worker, Luke, can also see the ghost and might be able to help Megan figure out what Remy is trying to tell her and help her to move on. Marrone delivers a finely woven tale — a fairy tale and modern horror story — all in one frightening package.

The story has many layers that interact very smoothly and create an atmosphere that is at times chilling and at others sad or uplifting.

Written in the present tense with a skilled hand, the story is also given a thrilling sense of immediacy. Devoured will appeal primarily to YA girls and is a novel that some will definitely want to read more than once.

Recommended for public library YA horror collections. Contains violence and murder. Review by Stacey L. Amanda Marrone April 17, Book Review: Sleepless by Thomas Fahy.

By Amanda Marrone. Nicki rounds the corner fast, and I clutch the armrest tightly. I take a deep breath and see her look my way. Oh God, sorry, she says as she takes her foot off the gas pedal and presses on the brake. I get carried away on this stretch.
