Margaret N. Loves This Debut YA Novel

There’s a fine line between the living and the dead, and Marshall is determined to cross it in this gut-wrenching debut novel.

Ever since the car accident that killed his identical twin brother, Marshall Windsor has been consumed with guilt and crippled by the secrets of that fateful night. He has only one chance to make amends and set things right. He must find a thin space—a mythical point where the barrier between this world and the next is thin enough for a person to step through to the other side.

But when a new girl moves into the neighborhood, into the exact same house Marsh is sure holds a thin space, she may be the key—or the unraveling of all his secrets.

As they get closer to finding a thin space—and closer to each other—March must decide once and for all how far he’s willing to go to right the wrongs of the living…and the dead.

Margaret N. says:
"Marsh has been are on a quest since the night his twin brother died to find thin space - a doorway in the  barrier between this world and the next.  His ill neighbor Mrs Hansel told him that thin space was created when a soul leaves a body the same place it first 'quickens.' Mrs Hansel lives in the house she was born and plans to create a thin space so he can pass through.  After Mrs Hansel's death, Marsh is unable to find the thin space before another family moves in.  One has to be barefoot to pass through, so Marsh is walking all over town without shoes desperately trying to find a way to reach his brother, even though winter is coming.  Marsh was badly injured in the accident that killed his brother and no longer wants to be around his football friends nor his girlfriend. 

Will becoming friends with Maddie, who now lives in Mrs Hansel's house be the answer to his problem?"
