Miranda Blackwood relives America’s oldest mystery every day, spending the summer before her senior year working behind the scenes at an outdoor drama that tells the story of the Lost Colony of Roanoke Island. At home, she deals with her widowed father, the town drunk whose snake-shaped birthmark reminds everyone on the island that the Blackwood family is cursed. But when 114 people disappear from the island now—her father among them—Miranda finds herself at the center of something far more dangerous than a historical reenactment. To make matters worse, Phillip Rawling, an exiled teen criminal who claims to hear the voices of the dead, is back in town.

Together Miranda and Phillip must unlock the secrets of the past and the present, if there’s any hope of saving themselves—and the missing townspeople—from a centuries-old villain that no one could expect. From Girl on a Wire and Lois Lane: Fallout author Gwenda Bond, Blackwood is a dark, witty, romantic coming of age story set against the backdrop of an enduring mystery.
