9780062004789: The Raising: Novel (P.S.)

A sudden death.
In Godwin Honors Hall, the walls are draped in black. The college is in mourning for Nicole Werner, a blonde and beautiful prom queen who died in a car crash last semester. She was a straight-A student, and a prized member of the Virgin Sisters, the most powerful sorority on campus.

A feverish obsession.
Nicole's boyfriend Craig was at the wheel that night. He has no memory of the crash, but he is plagued by guilt. For as winter sets in and the nights darken, Nicole's death dominates college life. Candlelit vigils and fetishistic rituals become nightly events -and then the hauntings begin.

A flicker of suspicion.
Craig's roommate, Perry, doesn't believe in ghosts. A no-nonsense type who always thought Nicole was as manipulative as she was charming, he refuses to be swept up by the hysteria. But when he and his fellow sceptics join forces, he too sees Nicole's spirit in the crumbling college halls.

Product Description:

"Kasischke's writing does what good poetry does--it shows us an alternate world and lulls us into living in it . . . The language catapults us into another plane of existence, one of facade and reflection." --New York Times Book Review

"Haunting, unsettling, and unforgettable, The Raising limns love, longing, belonging and the things we only think we know about life--and yes, death." --Caroline Leavitt, author of Pictures of You

From Laura Kasischke, the critically acclaimed, bestselling author of In a Perfect World and The Life Before Her Eyes, comes a hypnotic mystery about one girl's tragic death and the fallout that occurs on her closely-knit college campus. Part Stephen King, part Donna Tartt, and wholly unforgettable, Kasischke's The Raising sets a new standard for hair-raising literary suspense.
