    A Skinful of Shadows is a dark YA historical fantasy set in the early part of the English Civil War. Makepeace is an illegitimate daughter of the aristocratic Fellmotte family, and as such, she shares their unique hereditary gift: the capacity to be possessed by ghosts.

As she flees the pursuing Fellmottes across war-torn England, she accumulates a motley crew of her own allies, including outcasts, misfits, criminals, and one extremely angry dead bear.

Now, as the Mississippi rises again, a deep wound threatens to reopen, and Laura must decide if running away once more might be the best way to save herself.

    Kendra Syrdal is probably in a bad mood. Unless she's writing, making fun of something, or eating tater tots. In this collection of humorous essays, Kendra takes you along for the ride in the completely weird and sometimes messy (but always hilarious) life of another girl with a terrible case of resting bitch face. She writes for the inner Cathy comic in all of us - who just needs to say ACK!, be cranky, and hate on stuff sometimes.Except on tater tots, obvi. #yesalltots
