Description


There’s a fine line between the living and the dead, and Marshall is determined to cross it in this gut-wrenching debut novel.

Ever since the car accident that killed his identical twin brother, Marshall Windsor has been consumed with guilt and crippled by the secrets of that fateful night. He has only one chance to make amends and set things right. He must find a thin space—a mythical point where the barrier between this world and the next is thin enough for a person to step through to the other side.

But when a new girl moves into the neighborhood, into the exact same house Marsh is sure holds a thin space, she may be the key—or the unraveling of all his secrets.

As they get closer to finding a thin space—and closer to each other—March must decide once and for all how far he’s willing to go to right the wrongs of the living…and the dead.

About the Author


Jody Casella has been writing stories since the age of seven. She majored in creative writing at Rhodes College and started an MFA at the University of Memphis. Then in a moment of fear at the sheer impracticality of being a poet, she quit writing, earned an MA, and started teaching. After a stint working and raising children, she’s grateful to be back writing full-time. Over the past few years she’s amused her neighbors in Ohio by walking around the block barefoot in the snow to research her first YA paranormal mystery, Thin Space.

Praise for Thin Space…


"A creepy supernatural chiller sets up a gut-punch of desolation and loss....Brutal and brilliant."

"Sometimes you need a book that hurts so good, and Jody Casella's powerful, authentically told debut is one of those books. Thin Space carries you through the heart of what it means to love and lose, to regret and move forward...and won't set you down until long after its riveting finale."
-Jennifer Castle

"An eerie yet ultimately hopeful exploration of grief, guilt, friendship and redemption, Thin Spacecaptivated me from start to finish."
-Colleen Clayton

"Take off your shoes and prepare to stroll barefoot through a novel richly grounded in love, loss, and the redemptive power of truth. But don't get too comfortable, because the twist at the end will knock your socks off."
-Mike Mullin
