Resurrection Girls by Ava Morgyn is a YA Magical Realism novel that’s perfect for the Fall weather!
“Olivia Foster hasn’t felt alive since her little brother drowned in the backyard pool three years ago. Then Kara Hallas moves in across the street with her mother and grandmother, and Olivia is immediately drawn to these three generations of women. Kara is particularly intoxicating, so much so that Olivia not only comes to accept Kara’s morbid habit of writing to men on death row, she helps her do it. They sign their letters as the Resurrection Girls.
But as Kara’s friendship pulls Olivia out of the dark fog she’s been living in, Olivia realizes that a different kind of darkness taints the otherwise lively Hallas women—an impulse that is strange, magical, and possibly deadly”
Get ready for the spooky season with this YA Magical Realism story!!
This is kind of a dark, morbid plot that follows two girls as they venture around death and dying through her past brother, death row inmates, and the crazy notion of bringing them back to life. And I loved every minute of it!!
I’d say there might be some triggering factors for readers who may be sensitive to topics such as drug abuse, grief, and death. So please be aware of this before reading the book.
Through the eerie pages, we are thrown into this uniquely spooky, suspenseful, mysterious story that I flew through. It’s definitely one you’ll want to read on the back porch under the glistening moonlight.
A highly recommended 4 out of 5 star Halloween read!

“Edward’s University in Austin, TX, and now lives in Houston—city with the most rain, best food, and worst traffic—with her family. When she isn’t at her laptop spinning darkly hypnotic tales, she can be found making fairy houses, talking to her crystals and plants, hunting for delicious new vegan recipes, or bothering her dog. She also blogs regularly about the devastating journey of child loss at ForLoveofEvelyn.com.”
