Author Visit: Kara Thomas

One of the most anticipated events in the school library year after year is our author visit. Kara Thomas (then using the pen name Kara Taylor) visited Mepham High School back in 2014. Read all about her first visit here. She wrote the Prep School Confidential series (St. Martin’s Press) and the pilot The Revengers for the CW under the pen name Kara Taylor. You can find her on Twitter, Instagram, or on the couch with her rescue cat, Felix.

She will be joining us once again on Tuesday, March 21st at 2:15 p.m. in the school library. There will be a reading from her latest novel, The Darkest Corners, a Q&A period, a book raffle and a book signing and photo op session.

This event is sponsored by the National English Honor Society and is a sanctioned ELITE event. All students are welcome to attend.

About the book 
"There are ghosts around every corner in Fayette, Pennsylvania.
Tessa left when she was nine and has been trying ever since not to think about it after what happened there that last summer. Memories of things so dark will burn themselves into your mind if you let them.
Callie never left. She moved to another house, so she doesn’t have to walk those same halls, but then Callie always was the stronger one. She can handle staring into the faces of her demons—and if she parties hard enough, maybe one day they’ll disappear for good.
Tessa and Callie have never talked about what they saw that night. After the trial, Callie drifted and Tessa moved, and childhood friends just have a way of losing touch.
But ever since she left, Tessa has had questions. Things have never quite added up. And now she has to go back to Fayette—to Wyatt Stokes, sitting on death row; to Lori Cawley, Callie’s dead cousin; and to the one other person who may be hiding the truth.
Only the closer Tessa gets to the truth, the closer she gets to a killer—and this time, it won’t be so easy to run away."
