Tour: The Shattered Seam by Kathleen Groger
The Shattered Seam
Goodreads B&N Amazon
Spending spring break on an isolated island rumored to be haunted is not sixteen-year-old Sam’s idea of fun. Spending spring break with her uncle and his ghost-hunting film crew on an isolated island is even worse.
Her family’s secrets—and a genetic ability she can no longer deny—surface, along with the ghost of a rich serial killer who left behind a trail of trapped souls.
And he’s not through yet.
With only one chance for escape, Sam must embrace her family’s curse and close the Seam between the living and the dead. Or be lost, forever.

RATING: 4 OUT OF 5 Stars
This book has all the elements required to tell a creepy tale. A teenager who believes she is sick because she seems to see things that others can’t see, a super-creepy locale, familial secrets, and lots of mystery.
Sam is sixteen years old and is spending Spring Break with her Uncle who films his ghost-hunting activities. She has absolutely zero interest in spending her vacation with her Uncle, and who can blame her. She is sixteen after-all and would rather spend time with kids her own age.
I do not want to give way too much of the story, but suffice it to say that this series debut will have young adult readers on the edge of their seats. At only 206 pages, it is a quick read which I believe appeals to the younger teen readers.
My only criticism is that I would have liked a bit more character development, but since this is the first book in a series, I am sure that readers will learn more and more about Sam as the series continues.
I rate THE SHATTERED SEAM as 4 out of 5 stars.
