Something Kindred


Magical realism meets Southern Gothic in this commanding young
adult debut from Ciera Burch about true love, the meaning of
home, and the choices that haunt us.
Welcome to Coldwater. Come for the ghosts, stay for the drama.
Jericka Walker had planned to spend the summer before senior year
soaking up the sun with her best friend on the Jersey Shore. Instead
she finds herself in Coldwater, Maryland, a small town with a dark
and complicated past where her estranged grandmother
lives—someone she knows only two things about: her name and the
fact that she left Jericka’s mother and uncle when they were children.
But now Jericka’s grandmother is dying, and her mother has
dragged Jericka along to say goodbye.
As Jericka attempts to form a connection with a woman she’s never
known, and adjusts to life in a town where everything closes before dinner, she meets “ghost girl” Kat, a girl
eager to leave Coldwater and more exciting than a person has any right to be. But Coldwater has a few
unsettling secrets of its own. The more you try to leave, the stronger the town’s hold. As Jericka feels the
chilling pull of her family’s past, she begins to question everything she thought she knew about her mother,
her childhood, and the lines between the living and the dead.

“A double exposure of heartbreaking beauty and electric prose, Something Kindred tenderly beckons you to a town

haunted by memories and asks you to stay awhile.”
