Quote for the week: The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart. Helen Keller.

Okay, if you're reading this in the dark, stop, turn on the lights. You'll be glad you did, because THE HAUNTED STEPSISTER, by Author Medeia Sharif, is with us. Yes. I'm excited to be a part of Medeia's Book Blitz.

Are you spooked yet?
Title: The Haunted Stepsister
Author: Medeia Sharif
Publisher: Leap Books
Release Date: May 9, 2016
Back-cover blurb
Sixth grade isn’t easy for Jesenya Moradi, especially since her father’s recent remarriage and tension with her new stepsister, Kammy. After an incident at school that nearly destroyed Kammy's life, Jess has been desperate to get on Kammy’s good side. But a fateful trip to an allegedly haunted bathroom changes both girls’ lives forever.

The rumors about the bathroom are true, and now Jess is convinced a demon's possessing Kammy. Eerie things happen whenever she's around – flying objects, flickering lights, not to mention the fact that something, or someone, is making people into its puppets.
Worse, the demon seems fixated on making Jess confess her part in ruining Kammy's reputation. Sticking to her Muslim faith, Jess enlists the help of an imam to exorcise the demon from Kammy. But can they get rid of the demon before it destroys her new family?
