Leigh Bardugo meets The Sixth Sense in this story of one girl’s perilous journey to restore a lost order. 
Imagine you live with your aunt, who hates you so much she’s going to sell you into a dreadful apprenticeship. Imagine you run away before that can happen. Imagine that you can see ghosts—and talk with the dead. People like you are feared, even shunned.
Now imagine . . . the first people you encounter after your escape are a mysterious stranger and a ghost boy, who seem to need you desperately—though you don’t understand who they are or exactly what they want you to do. So you set off on a treacherous journey, with only a ghost dog for company. And you find that what lies before you is a task so monumental that it could change the world.

My thoughts:  While I don't like such a direct comparison to another author's style, I DO like the idea of  high fantasy Sixth Sense! :D  Ghost dogs, a cruel aunt, and a mysterious all sounds pretty bizarre and amazing!  The cool, slightly unsettling cover doesn't hurt either! 

What book are you eagerly anticipating this week?
