12. After Obsession - Carrie Jones & Steven E. Wedel
for young adults
Liked it a lot (4)
Setting: a small community on the Union River, near Ellsworth, Maine
OSS: Two voices alternate as this story unfolds - Aimee and Alan - who know that an evil force (the River Man) is trying to possess a friend, the same evil force that took the life of Aimee's mother and countless others through the past centuries.
1st sentence/s: You are mine. You are all mine. These are the words I hear every single freaking morning since my friend Courtney's dad died. They slither around inside my brain all day until I think I'm going crazy, and today is no exception.
I enjoy reading Carrie Jones' novels....the setting is where I lived for so many year. This time, in her acknowledgements, she mentions Amilie Bacon, one of my past students at MDES. That was pretty exciting.
