Shade: Girl on a hero’s journey, going from smart-ass to badass.
Thanks to her offbeat mother, Shade’s full name is Galactic Shade Griffin. Having a name like that while being the new girl in school is pretty much catnip for bullies. When her best friend goes missing, Shade faces the question of whether or not she has what it takes to become a hero. With help from a ghost haunting her house, she discovers that she's capable of more than she ever thought possible. This novel deals with some serious issues: self-harm, a parent’s drug and alcohol addiction, and kidnapping.
