Fan-favorite webcomic creator Megan Rose Gedris (Yu+Me Dream) crafts a compelling tale of magic, deception, and wonder in this stunningly illustrated graphic novel about the bond between sisters.

Pragmatic engineer Anna works as a psychic in the Samson Brothers Circus, but she doesn't believe in anything supernatural—until her twin sister Kat is murdered and comes back as a very demanding ghost. Sharing a room with her sister was hard, but now they're sharing a body while trying to identify the killer. With few leads, a troupe full of secretive folk, and strange paranormal occurrences popping up around the circus, solving the case seems near impossible. But the murderer in their midst may be the least of their problems... 

"Humorous and heartfelt, creepy and captivating; readers will eagerly hope for another volume." - Kirkus

Megan Rose Gedris gave up her dream job of being a cheesemonger for her other dream job of making comics. She lives in a probably haunted house in Chicago with her cat, Scrambles the Death Dealer.

"It’s Geek Love for a new generation, with lush and expressive art to boot."
