About the Author:
Maureen Johnson leads the pack of YA authors who have been building a highly-mobilized online community. Chosen by Time Magazine as one of the top 140 Twitter feeds and named Mashable’s “Most Interesting Twitter User to Follow,” Maureen has over 32,000 followers. She led the recent #YASaves campaign that built over 15,000 responses in a 24-hour period, getting international coverage as the debate over the place of YA literature continued. Maureen Johnson is a New York Times Bestselling author of ten books for Young Adults, including 13 LITTLE BLUE ENVELOPES and SUITE SCARLETT.
The day Louisiana teenager Rory Deveaux arrives in London marks a memorable occasion. For Rory, it's the start of a new life at a London boarding school. But for many, this will be remembered as the day a series of brutal murders broke out across the city, gruesome crimes mimicking the horrific Jack the Ripper events of more than a century ago.
Soon "Rippermania" takes hold of modern-day London, and the police are left with few leads and no witnesses. Except one. Rory spotted the man police believe to be the prime suspect. But she is the only one who saw him. Even her roommate, who was walking with her at the time, didn't notice the mysterious man. So why can only Rory see him? And more urgently, why has Rory become his next target? In this edge-of-your-seat thriller, full of suspense, humor, and romance, Rory will learn the truth about the secret ghost police of London and discover her own shocking abilities.
