Jennifer Strange is cursed with the ability to give ghosts and demons a corporeal body with just the touch of her hand. All she wants is to learn how to control her new gift. Instead, her father drops her in the care of her older sister Liz, leaving only his journal as explanation.
Jennifer and Liz haven’t spoken to each other since their mother died, but when the supernatural residents of Savannah, Georgia find Jennifer and her powerful gift, the sisters must learn to trust each other again and uncover the truth about their parents. If they can’t sort out their differences, they’ll not only destroy the veil between the living and the dead but fall into the hands of a rival family who wants to claim the Sparrow power for themselves.
Part comic. Part journal. Part novel. Jennifer Strange is a wild ride unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

"Devilishly paced and drenched in Gothic atmosphere, JENNIFER STRANGE is a wild, spine-tingling ride." - Claire Legrand, New York Times-bestselling author of Furyborn and Sawkill Girls
"What if ghosts and demons really did walk among us (and who’s to say they don’t?) – Jennifer Strange takes readers deep into a world beyond the one we think we know; a world of magic, talismans, sigils, dark beings and ancient prophecies. Prepare to be delighted and terrified as you get swept away in Cat Scully’s spellbinding debut." - Jennifer McMahon, New York Times-bestselling author of The Winter People and The Invited
“Cat Scully has a wickedly dark streak and talent to spare. JENNIFER STRANGE is a wonderfully creepy southern gothic full of ghosts, magic, and dreadful family secrets, all stewed in the sultry swelter of haunted Savannah, Georgia. This book ticks all the boxes for me, and Scully weaves it all together beautifully!" - Christopher Golden, New York Times bestselling author of SNOWBLIND.
"Jennifer Strange comes on like a freight train filled with the screaming corpses of a thousand nightmares, fast paced and unrelenting. I didn't like it, I loved it. It's nice to see someone who remembers that horror should be scary! Catherine Scully doesn't just tell a good tale, she drags you into her world and shoves you into the dark places where the monsters hide. A phenomenal first book!" - James A. Moore, author of the Seven Forges Series and The Last Sacrifice.
“Cat Scully's debut, JENNIFER STRANGE, wastes no space showing you exactly what you're in for. The first time I started this novel, my reaction was, "THIS is a YA book?!" HELL yeah, it is. But it ain't just kids' stuff. Scully doesn't pander or soft pedal a story about young people facing their demons. She's written a mature, compelling horror story with heart and real scares straight from jump. Take note of Scully's name, folks. She's here to raise Hell, in a really good way. JENNIFER STRANGE is proof of that.” - Bracken MacLeod, Bram Stoker and Shirley Jackson Award nominated author of Mountain Home and Closing Costs
