Silence (The Queen of the Dead #1) by Michelle Sagara

Silence (The Queen of the Dead, #1)"It began in the graveyard... " 
Ever since her boyfriend Nathan had died in a tragic accident, Emma had been coming to the graveyard at night. During the day she went through the motions at her prep school, in class, with her friends, but that's all it was. For Emma, life had stopped with Nathan's death. But tonight was different. Tonight Emma and her dog were not alone in the cemetery. There were two others there--Eric, who had just started at her school, and an ancient woman who looked as though she were made of rags. And when they saw Emma there, the old woman reached out to her with a grip as chilling as death.... 

REVIEW: ****

Unexpectedly good book. I went into this thinking it was just another YA I see ghosts story but was pleasantly surprised. This book had a unique take on the premise and the main character was a strong, decisive character. Not a whiny angsty teen. The story was fast paced and the writing was well done.
