The Killing Jar

Written by Jennifer Bosworth

Seventeen-year-old Kenna Marsden is haunted by a violent tragedy she can't explain, and dark powers she's struggled to suppress. Following a tragic and scary assault on her mother and her twin sister, Kenna is exiled to a commune, known as Eclipse, to live with a relative she never knew she had. There, she discovers a new way of life as she learns who she really is, and the wonders she's capable of. For the first time, she starts to feel like she belongs somewhere; that her terrible secret makes her beautiful and strong, not dangerous. But the longer she stays at Eclipse, the more she senses there is something menacing lurking underneath its idyllic veneer - and she begins to suspect that her new family may have sinister plans for her...
