LABYRINTH LOST x NEVER HAVE I EVER
At her strict mother's command, Cara’s ignored ghosts her whole life. She hates them, anyway.
But arrogant (and recently deceased) golden boy Zach comes with a tempting offer: money she desperately needs for college in return for resurrecting him before he fades in seven days.
However, helping him means straining her fraught relationship with her mother and entering a magical world where she could lose her life—and her heart.
There was a ghost in the cafeteria again.
Cara stopped dead, fingers tightening on her tray. Her water bottle bounced onto the floor, but she paid it no mind. Shoulders stiffening with familiar tension, she tracked the silver glow of the specter from the corner of her eye.
Ghosts always got more troublesome this time of year. Last Halloween, a spirit of a teacher from the 60s, still seething at being fired from Autumn Falls High School, had decided to enact his belated revenge by releasing a horde of rats into the kitchen. Not that Cara had minded the plan itself—when they reopened the cafeteria after a deep clean, the perpetual sour smell of pickles had finally dissipated. It was the fact that when you saw the dead lurking around, it always meant more trouble for the living.
Milling students shuffled to the side, revealing a man’s bleached face, replete with black pipe cleaner brows.
The heavy backpack slung over Cara’s shoulder sank lower in her relief. It was just Mr. Toole, a janitor who’d died a few decades ago from a gas leak in his apartment. She’d looked him up in the yearbook the first time she saw him freshman year. Apparently, carbon monoxide poisoning hadn’t stopped him from showing up to work the next day—and for the rest of eternity.
