The Appearance of Annie Van Sinderen

Written by Katherine Howe

The Appearance of Annie Van Sinderen Synopsis

It's July in New York City, and aspiring filmmaker Wes Auckerman has just arrived to start his summer term at NYU. While shooting a seance at a psychic's in the East Village, he meets a mysterious, intoxicatingly beautiful girl named Annie. As they start spending time together, Wes finds himself falling for her, drawn to her rose-petal lips and her entrancing glow. There's just something about her that he can't put his finger on, something faraway and otherworldly that compels him to fall even deeper. Annie's from the city, and yet she seems just as out of place as Wes feels. Lost in the chaos of the busy city streets, she's been searching for something-a missing ring. And now Annie is running out of time and needs Wes's help. As they search together, Annie and Wes uncover secrets lurking around every corner, secrets that will reveal the truth of Annie's dark past.

The Appearance of Annie Van Sinderen Press Reviews

'Howe has a historian's sure grasp of period detail as well as a keen ear for contemporary dialogue...Annie is a sassy heroine who takes the unfamiliarity of being dead and the wonders of new technology in her stride'. * Independent * 'Lush, twisty and spellbinding, Katherine Howe's The Appearance of Annie van Sinderen will keep you up all night and not let you go in the morning. Utterly beguiling from beginning to end.' -- Megan Abbott, award-winning author of Dare Me and The Fever 'Hauntingly etched, creating an eeriness that lingers after the novel's romantic ending.' * Publishers Weekly, starred review * 'This strange and gorgeous novel is rich with humor, ghosts, art, and true love, but I think I loved it best for its characters: a group of loyal friends who ricochet together through the streets of a hummingly alive New York City, searching for a lost ring, a devastating secret, and, most of all, for the people they want to become.' -- Marisa de los Santos, New York Times bestselling author of The Precious One, Belong to Me, and Saving Lucas Biggs 'A tautly paced page-turner that blends historical fiction, romance, and the supernatural.' * School Library Journal, starred review *
