Rebecca has recently arrived at Winterfold, a small town on the English Coast, when she meets another teenage girl named Ferelith, who, despite her name, is actually mostly normal. Especially considering she is an orphan who rents out her home to other children and teenagers so she can survive, essentially. But as their strange relationship progresses, they begin to explore stranger things, such as what happens to a person after they die. And when they find a secret room used for human experiments intended to find the same thing....

I have to say that I (as a guy) was kind of worried about the two main characters being girls, but it was a lot more enjoyable than I expected.  Library's SWAN Online Catalog

This book is about a girl named Sunshine who moves from Texas to Washington because her mom got a new job. She immediately feels uncomfortable and constantly cold. Strange things begin happening. This book is very good for people who like suspense, mystery, or horror. I strongly recommend this book.  Library's SWAN Online Catalog
