I have never reviewed a book written by a friend and colleague before I taught with Sonia and felt like I identified most deeply to Willie s struggles as a teacher Those self doubts will resonate with every teacher But this book is so much than a book about a teacherWillie comes alive from the first page when we discover she s a liarshe has run away from her family who wants her to leave school She s swiped another girl s teaching certificate and has run away to Oklahomato the Cherokee Nation She soon learns that the Cherokee are indeed a Civilized Tribe The Seminary she runs to is home to upwardly mobile girls whose parents are rich educated and ever so slightly snobbish about their light skin color The girls are prairie Mean Girlsespecially Fannie Since Willie is really younger than her students she lets them intimidate her at first until her friend Olivia takes her under her wingThere s also a ghost storythe girl who used to live in Willie s room died under mysterious circumstanceswas it an accident Was it murder Suicide No one much wants to talk about it But strange things happen at schoolWillie hears tapping on her window the girls often smell river water the same river where Ella died And rooms would suddenly go cold Olivia believes there s a revenant at the school There s also a love story Eli oh Eli They meet on the train but they re both trapped by Willie s lies She s younger than Eli but he thinks she s a teacher and she must pretend to be something she s not Eli is charmingseems to be a ne r do well a failing student with no ambitionThe mystery unravels itself just as Willie s lies unravelI loved the way the ghost story resolves itselfMy only frustration is one I often feel with well crafted YA novelsI wish it was a full length adult novel I could tell Sonia knew the entire back story of each character Olivia who introduces Willie to revenants and ouija boards and grading rubics Toomey the stepfather who may not be as evil as Willie first believed And Miss Crenshawoh how I want to know HER story So for me I want to know about these characters I want to watch them interact to think to dream I wanted the story to have that time to developI wanted One reviewer compared Sonia to Jennifer Donnelly and I absolutely agree Each of them has a sense of place and time that bring the story alive They know how to craft intelligent literate interesting heroines we want to know I m so proud of my friend and I can t wait to hold MY OWN book in my hand and have her autograph it After I read it I had several of my students read it and they loved it toothey loved the characters the romance and they wrote thank you notes to Soniathis one is a winner

I finished reading Sonia Gensler s THE REVENANT last night and closed it with a sigh You know the feeling of finishing a book that s just so good you worry that you won t find another one you love as much for a long time It s one of those books and while I couldn t put it down to make it last longer I was so sad to be finishedTHE REVENANT is a delicious blend of historical fiction mystery and ghost story set at a Cherokee boarding school near the turn of the century When 17 year old Willemina Hammond arrives to take a teaching position it s under false pretenses but her phony identity soon becomes the least of her concerns when she s assigned to the bedroom of a former student who might have been murdered The students are convinced her ghost haunts the school and it seems to be growing ever violent As she struggles to carry out her role as teacher and gain the respect of her students Willie is pulled deeper and deeper into the mystery until her very life is at stakeThere is so much to love in this story characters who are complex and multi faceted especially the main character Willie who is at once strong spirited and flawed Her coming of age through the trials of this ghost storymystery is believable and poignant and at the same time the story sacrifices nothing in terms of its harrowing plot I was turning pages as fast as I could at one point then found myself going back to appreciate the gorgeous prose once I d found out what happenedThe writing in this book reminds me of the very best of Jennifer Donnelly s work stunning and seemingly effortless In fact I was bewildered when my cell phone rang while I was reading yesterday It took me a minute to remember that I wasn t actually curled up in the library of a 19th century boarding school I took the book with me when I went to rescue my husband whose car had died just in case there were any red lights along the way Teachers give this one to Donnelly fans for sure but I think it will also appeal to your supernatural romance readers and will be a perfect transition for those who have read their fill of Twlight esue titles and are looking for something You won t want to miss this book due out in June from Knopf
