LIGHT AS A FEATHER, COLD AS MARBLE is a new release from Hachette Audiobooks: Powered by Wattpad - an innovative collaboration between Hachette Book Group and Wattpad. Your favorite online stories, now available in your headphones! In this sequel to LIGHT AS A FEATHER, STIFF AS A BOARD, 16-year-old McKenna Brady returns home to Weeping Willow, Wisconsin after being sent to reform school. McKenna still believes that Violet, the new girl who arrived in her town earlier that fall, cast an evil spell on her friends which resulted in two of them dying exactly how Violet predicted they would. Although McKenna has missed her mom and boyfriend, Trey, while she's been off at school, she doesn't mind the punishment she's been issued, because she's confident that she and Trey were successful in breaking Violet's curse and saving their friend Mischa's life. However, it isn't long before McKenna realizes that not only did she and Trey fail to break the curse, but Violet's been casting it on new victims while they've been out of town. Now, Mischa will be next to die, and there are many more lives at stake. Complicating matters, both McKenna and Trey are due back at their respective boarding schools shortly after New Year's, and their parents are committed to keeping them separated and out of trouble. And worst of all, McKenna is starting to wonder if Trey's keeping secrets from her that are putting her in greater danger. Desperate to unravel the secret of how Violet came into her powers and overthrow her once and for all, McKenna enlists the aid of Henry Richmond, who is eager to avenge his sister's untimely death. Along with Trey, they follow the instructions they've received from ghostly sources to break the spell by forcing Violet to once again play the game that started it all. As McKenna begins to understand her own uncommon ability to communicate with dead spirits, she wonders if their guidance will be enough to outsmart the forces of evil aiding Violet.Show more
LIGHT AS A FEATHER, STIFF AS A BOARD is a new release from Hachette Audiobooks: Powered by Wattpad - an innovative collaboration between Hachette Book Group, a leading publisher, and Wattpad, a passionate storytelling community of over 45 million people. Your favorite online stories, now available in your headphones! McKenna Brady thinks her junior year of high school is going to be the best ever when she's welcomed into the elite group of popular girls at Weeping Willow High School led by blonde, gorgeous Olivia Richmond. Prior to junior year, McKenna was known in her small town as the girl whose twin sister died in a tragic house fire, but now she has a date to the Homecoming dance with Olivia's handsome older brother, and a good chance of being elected to student council. For the first time since McKenna's parents divorced, things are looking up. Everything changes the night of Olivia's Sweet Sixteen sleepover birthday party. Violet, the shy, mysterious new girl in town, suggests the girls play a scary game called Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board, during which she makes up elaborate stories about the future ways in which beautiful Olivia, brassy Candace, and athletic Mischa will die. The game unsettles McKenna because she's already escaped death once in her life, but she doesn't want to ruin her friends' fun. It's only a game, she reminds herself. But it doesn't seem like a harmless game a week later when Olivia dies unexpectedly in a violent car crash, exactly as Violet predicted. And something begins haunting McKenna's bedroom at night, leaving her clues that all seem to point to Violet. McKenna enlists the help of her cute next-door neighbor Trey in finding out exactly what kind of curse Violet has put on all of the popular girls in the junior class. As Violet seemingly steps into the life Olivia left unfinished, McKenna and Trey have a limited amount of time to bring an end to Violet's game before more lives are lost.Show more
