Thomas Fahy teaches literature at Long Island University (C. W. Post campus) and is the author of The Unspoken, for teens, and Night Visions, for adults. He lives in Sea Cliff, New York.From School Library Journal:
Grade 9 Up—Something is not quite right in the small town of Sea Cliff. An evil force is at work, leaving tragedy and death in its wake for a group of students from Saint Opportuna High School. The story centers around Emma, who recently moved to New York from the South and is grieving over the recent death of her mother, and Jake, a charismatic rebel who serves as car mechanic and pot dealer to his classmates. After returning from a school trip to New Orleans to rebuild homes destroyed by Hurricane Katrina, Emma, Jake, and the other students who participated band together into a "secret society," led by the faculty advisor, Dr. Beecher, sworn to keep quiet about what really happened down there. All of the teens are behaving erratically and suffering from horrific nightmares with bouts of sleepwalking. Then classmates begin to turn up dead. Fahy grabs readers right from the opening pages and uses a series of flashbacks to reveal earlier events in the story. The plot is full of suspense mixed with voodoo, vengeance, and murder, creating a chilling tale. Unfortunately, the ending is disappointing, as everything wraps up too quickly in the last few pages.—Donna Rosenblum, Floral Park Memorial High School, NY
