Fifteen-year-old Willow is terrified of her new baby, Lilah, who has a peculiar form of epilepsy. Every time Lilah's eyes glaze over, terrible things happen: flowers shrivel, food goes to rot - even Willow's long, auburn hair turns stark white. But it's the death of the family cat that becomes the last straw; in the middle of the night, Willow and her mother dump the infant at the fire station two towns over – and are never heard from again.
The next morning, Chief Stanley Quinn takes Lilah home and cares for the toddler as best as he can. With medication, her epilepsy remains under control... For the most part.
But as a teenager, Lilah isn't always keen on taking her pills, and when she sneaks away to a rock concert with the cutest boy in school, something terrible happens, landing both of them in the hospital. After Stanley breaks down and confesses everything to his adopted daughter, she decides to track down the young girl who gave her up sixteen years ago; the young girl who never made it home that night… The young girl who is now presumed to be dead. Soon, Lilah's quest to find her birth mother becomes a quest to solve a sixteen-year-old missing persons case. She has everything she needs to find her – she just needs to learn how to control her peculiar ‘gift’ before she kills someone.

"The Girl Who Talks to Ashes is a truly engrossing novel that plays with the horror genre without being consumed by it, flirts with sci-fi without giving in to it, and explodes into a magnificent mystery that kept me reading long into the night. I enjoyed every minute of this book and I can’t recommend it enough." -Vinnie A., ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"5 fabulous stars for another read added to the shelf of my all-time favorites.The Girl Who Talks To Ashes is one of the most ingenious books I have ever read." -The Magic Book Corner, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"The Girl Who Talks to Ashes is so much more than a Young Adult novel. I usually don't read Gothic, Cozy Mystery, or Time Travel stories, but this gripping Urban Fantasy with neat scientific explanations is all those things. I was sucked into the craziness and read it within two days! It was so good." -Christina M., ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"Surprising, intriguing, characters that both scare you and endear you, the title itself should have the curious pondering. Take the plunge...it’s worth it. A new to me author, I found this tale so very refreshing." -Patti K., ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"Breathtaking story. The tagline gives a huge hint, "Time waits for no one...except Lilah Quinn." I got this by the, perhaps, third chapter so I don't count it as a spoiler. It's so beautifully done. I admit I cried in the scene where the title suddenly makes sense." - Kelly E., ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
