Book Overview

Imagine Riverdale crossing streams with Stephen King's The Outsider and you'll get a sense of this gripping supernatural mystery.Gould's debut begins as a snappy paranormal yarn and unspools into a profound story about the complex interplay between grief, guilt, and identity. - Oprah Daily

Courtney Gould's thrilling YA debut The Dead and the Dark is about the things that lurk in dark corners, the parts of you that can't remain hidden, and about finding home in places--and people--you didn't expect.

The Dark has been waiting--and it won't stay hidden any longer.

Something is wrong in Snakebite, Oregon. Teenagers are disappearing, some turning up dead, the weather isn't normal, and all fingers point to TV's most popular ghost hunters who have just come to town.

Logan Ortiz-Woodley, daughter of TV's ParaSpectors, has never been to Snakebite before. But the moment she and her dads arrive, she starts to get the feeling that there's more than ghosts plaguing this small town. Ashley Barton's boyfriend was the first teen to go missing, and she's felt his ghost following her ever since. Although everyone shuns the Ortiz-Woodleys, the mysterious Logan may be the only person who can help Ashley get some answers.

When Ashley and Logan team up to figure out who--or what--is haunting Snakebite, their investigation reveals truths about the town, their families, and themselves that neither of them are ready for. As the danger intensifies, they realize that their growing feelings for each other could be a light in the darkness

   calling all ghost hunters!
Wow. This book is THE book for fans of ghost hunters and other paranormal shows. I don't watch those shows, to be honest I can't stand them, and yet, this book was ADDICTING. After the first few pages I found myself ignoring everything around me, my eyes glued to my tablet I couldn't read fast enough. Spooky and unsettling The Dead and the Dark will twist your stomach in knots in the way only a truly gripping tale can, and leave you craving more!

Logan Ortiz-Woodley is used to bouncing around from place to place, following her two dads, the stars behind the fantastically popular ParaSpectors tv show. So when the news was given that she would be moving to Snakebite Oregon for an undetermined amount of time she see's no reason to be upset. After all, its just another place to hang out for a while before returning as a family to their home in L.A. What Logan doesn't know is something is very very wrong in Snakebite and I don't just mean the way the town treats new comers.
Things are happening, kids have gone missing with no trace, some turning up dead while others remaining missing.

The story is told from the point of view of Logan and her temporary partner, Ashely who has lost her boyfriend and determined to find him, even if it means hanging out with the girl no one wants there. Will they discover what or whom is behind this? Can they find Tristan and uncover the mysteries surrounding Logan's family and their experience in Snakebite so long ago?

The prose on this story flows well and is absolutely beautiful. The descriptions Courtney Gould was able to paint were at times breath taking. The relationship between Logan's dads is one of my favorite things in the story. It's such a fun journey learning how they came together and what makes them so absolutely perfect for each other.

This will be one of the best new releases in the second half of this year. I imagine best seller list and the way the story is told it lends itself well to fandoms, fanfic, etc.

So gather your ghost hunting tools and get ready for one mind blowing experience you won't soon forget.
