Wear White to Your Funeral by Lisa Acerbo is a book with an intriguing title. Yes, the title caught my attention, but when I opened the first page I knew there would be no turning back. This is a paranormal story with great elements of horror. Meet Rory, a young high school senior sent by her mother to Trumbull, Connecticut — a small neighborhood that doesn’t have much to show. When Bowen asks her to join him on a class project, the first unnerving thing she notices is that they’d be conducting their research in the graveyard. They are looking for information on the legendary ghost known as the White Lady. They do encounter a dead body and have to run, but can they be faster than a ghost? The opening lines of this novel intrigued me and the reader can feel the creeps as they read the prologue:

“She had touched a dead person.
Fear rippled like ocean waves in her body.
She had to go! Run! Her body screamed at her to move.
She had to get away from the body and the other thing that now pursued her.”

Here is a story for fans of both horror and the paranormal, a story that will transport readers to a strange world with ghosts and humans caught up in a dangerous game. The question is: who is doing the killing? The writing is sweet, highly descriptive, and loaded with a lot of images that will arrest readers’ minds. Lisa Acerbo knows how to entertain readers and her writing will capture their emotions of fear in a tight grip. The characters, as well as the setting, are perfectly crafted. Wear White to Your Funeral is fast-paced and masterfully spun with many a big surprise for fans of horror and the paranormal.
