Sawkill Girls meets The Hazel Wood in this lush and eerie debut, where the boundary between reality and nightmares is as thin as the veil between the living and the dead.

If I could have a fiddle made of Daddy's bones, I'd play it. I'd learn all the secrets he kept.

Shady Grove inherited her father's ability to call ghosts from the grave with his fiddle, but she also knows the fiddle's tunes bring nothing but trouble and darkness.

But when her brother is accused of murder, she can't let the dead keep their secrets.

In order to clear his name, she's going to have to make those ghosts sing.

Family secrets, a gorgeously resonant LGBTQ love triangle, and just the right amount of creepiness make this young adult debut a haunting and hopeful story about facing everything that haunts us in the dark.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"What a gorgeous, creepy gem of a book, brimming with magic, mystery, music, and so much love that you'll ache as if these characters were your actual friends. Ghost Wood Song weaves a captivating spell you won't want to break." - Claire Legrand, New York Times bestselling author of Furyborn and Sawkill Girls "Ghost Wood Song sings a high and lonesome love song to family, to place, to music, and to love itself. It will make your heart dance." - Jeff Zentner, Morris Award winning author of The Serpent King and Goodbye Days "These haunted pages are full to bursting with intricate family dynamics, a nuanced queer romance, and a crescendo of an ending readers won't see coming. With notes of southern gothic and mystery, Ghost Wood Song will strike a chord with fans of The Raven Boys and Beautiful Creatures." - Rosiee Thor, author of Tarnished Are the Stars "Strikes the perfect balance of atmospheric chills, dark familial secrets, and a yearning for the warm comforts of home. I could hear the cicadas' call and feel the smothering humidity, even as I shivered!" - Erin A. Craig, New York Times bestselling author, House of Salt and Sorrows "Ghost Wood Song is a dusky, haunting daydream of a debut that hits all the right notes." - Dahlia Adler, author of Under the Lights and editor of His Hideous Heart "A gorgeously written debut filled with ghosts, a queer love triangle, a murder mystery, & a healthy dose of bluegrass. When you finish, you'll want to turn back to page one and start all over again." - Amanda Lovelace, author of The Princess Saves Herself in this One "Waters' debut features a bisexual lead with both male and female love interests, an atmospheric southern gothic setting, and, for the musically inclined, lots of folk and bluegrass references. For teens with a penchant for eerie ghost stories, this lyrical tale will hit the spot." - Booklist "Debut author Waters weaves an intense and spectral atmosphere with vivid prose...Haunting and alluring." - Kirkus Reviews "Shady's rustic drawl tinging her narration, and her descriptions of playing, are lyrical, connecting her grief over her father and chaotic family to an eerie folklore-inspired song...for those who love a good jam session and a bit of folklore." - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "Debut author Waters masterfully weaves together a gothic setting and a vivid, eerie atmosphere, pulling the reader into Shady's specter-filled world... This gothic queer romance will be enjoyed by fans of Claire Legrand's Sawkill Girls and Melissa Albert's The Hazel Wood." - School Library Journal
