The Taking of Jake Livingston, Paperback / softback Book

The Taking of Jake Livingston Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

A New York Times bestseller Get Out meets Holly Jackson in this YA social thriller where survival is not guaranteed. Sixteen-year-old Jake Livingston sees dead people everywhere.

But he can’t decide what’s worse: being a medium forced to watch the dead play out their last moments on a loop or being at the mercy of racist teachers as one of the few Black students at St Clair Prep.

Both are a living nightmare he wishes he could wake up from.

But things at St Clair start looking up with the arrival of another Black student – the handsome Allister – and for the first time, romance is on the horizon for Jake. Unfortunately, life as a medium is getting worse.

Though most ghosts are harmless, Sawyer Doon wants much more from Jake.

In life, Sawyer was a troubled teen who shot and killed six kids at a local high school before taking his own life.

Now he’s a powerful, vengeful ghost and he has plans for Jake.

High school has become a different kind of survival game – one Jake is not sure he can win.
