Garnet Havelock was always a bit different from other guys. He never quite fit in and he was okay with that. Now, in his final year of high school, he's just marking time, waiting to get out into the real world.

When a mysterious girl transfers to his school Garnet thinks he might have found the girl of his dreams, if only he could get her to talk to him.

As Garnet struggles to win over one girl, another girl is trying to get his attention -- unfortunately she lived over 150 years ago. Garnet becomes fascinated by her history and that of the black community she belonged to. As he draws closer to the truth, he uncovers a horrifying chapter in his town's history, and discovers the ways in which deep-seated prejudices and persecution from the past can still reverberate in the present.

Wow this book was really suspenseful. Filled with unexpected events from the past I was really captured by this novel and literally couldn't put it down. I finished it in a few hours.

Garnet Havelock knows what it's like to be on the outside, not one of the crows. Now, in his final year of high school, he's just marking time, waiting to get into the real world.

Then a mysterious girl transfers to his school and Garnet thinks he might have found the woman of his dreams - if only he could get her to talk to him.

At the same time, Garnet becomes caught up in a mystery centred in his community. As he and Raphaella draw closer to the truth they uncover a horrifying chapter in the town's history, and learn how deep-seated prejudices and persecution from the past can still reverberate in the present.

" My home was to be occupied by strangers. My mother was halfway around the world. My father would be buzzing around, humming cheerily in the house he's waited years to buy."
