Yovanoff (The Replacement, 2010, and The Space Between, 2011) returns with another tale barbed around the edges by the profane and the grotesque. It’s been six months since Hannah’s best friend, Lillian, died from an eating disorder, a fact Hannah can’t forget because Lillian is haunting her, rather languorously, sighing over Hannah’s clothing choices and criticizing her taste in boys. This edgy supernatural relationship intensifies with the arrival of the Valentine Killer, a child murderer who dresses up his or her victims with toys and paper valentines. Lillian is able to conjure the voice of one of the deceased, who supplies the girls with a clue, and soon the unlikely investigative duo is hunting down the criminal—who may or may not be Finny, the hunky delinquent who’s got Hannah feeling “squishy.” The killer-explains-all conclusion is pat, but everything else goes gangbusters, with Yovanoff’s patent-pending blend of weak-kneed ennui and crackling nastiness turning pages faster than ever. Thrills, romance, gore—what’s not to like? Grades 9-12. --Daniel Kraus
