Title: Don’t Forget To Breathe
Author: Cathrina Constantine
Publication Date: September 1st 2021
Print Length: 248 pages
Genre: Young Adult Supernatural Mystery

Leocadia arrives home from school to find her mom’s body. Unaware that the killer still lingers, she rushes to her mother’s side, only to be grabbed from behind. And everything fades to black.

Leo has been battling personal demons after a year of retrograde amnesia. She’s been having vivid dreams of that day. And her dreams are getting worse—she’s starting to remember. Two more bodies are discovered and they are oddly linked to her mom’s unsolved homicide.

Leo befriends her new neighbor. He’s eager to visit Star Hallow’s notorious haunted mansion. It’s located on a deserted cul-de-sac where she once lived and where her mom was murdered. But it’s the Lucien Estate, the mansion next door to her old home, where they happen upon misty ghosts, ghosts that just might help to unravel the homicides.

Will Leo’s memories send her reeling into a relapse, or will she be able to overcome her demons to find her mother’s killer – only to become the next victim?

Not dawdling but clinging to the banister, I breezed up the stairs to the second-floor landing. Adjusting to the dimness, I gazed into the extended hallway. A billowing shape floated by with long, silvery hair.

My tone quavered, “Is that you, Henry?” Either he was wearing a wig to scare me, or Monique Baskerville’s ghost decided to make an appearance.

“Up here...” My head jerked to the distinct words coming from above.

“Henry, I just peed myself,” I said, singing the words, “just in case you’re wondering.” I veered around the banister to take the third set of stairs. Footsteps came from behind me and my skin chilled into mounds of gooseflesh. Is someone following me? I stopped and chafed the freeze from my arms. Whoever or whatever had also stopped.

Resembling a motorized robot, I took one stair, waited and listened, another stair, waited and listened. I heard rustling, and sensing a presence I twisted on the spot. White misty flecks evaporated into thin air leaving behind a lingering scent. An extremely familiar perfume.

“Mom? Is that you?” Stifling my inhalations, I half expected her to respond. With nothing forthcoming, the thoughts of witnessing a ghost loosened my vocal cords. “Henry. I need you!” I chugged up the staircase faster than a locomotive.
