Reviews

"Ghosts of Harvard is written with a masterly, focused hand, belying the fact that this is Serritella's debut novel. The pages burn with frenetic energy and are peopled by memorable, compelling characters. The tension is palatable, the twists and surprises perfectly timed and the stakes as high as humans should be asked to endure. The end result, a novel you will long remember and characters you will want to see again. A triumph in every respect."--#1 New York Times bestselling author David Baldacci

"Wow, what a lively, compelling, and intoxicating debut. Ghosts of Harvard is so many things--a rumination on grief, a glimpse behind the ivory walls of a famous institution, a poignant look at mental illness, and a powerful story about the ghosts that haunt us all. Francesca Serritella is my new 'go-to' author."--#1 New York Times bestselling author Harlan Coben

"Ghosts of Harvard is a wrenchingly beautiful book. With immense heart and unwavering empathy, Francesca Serritella explores the legacy of loss and the mystery of family. It's one of those rare novels that spirits you to a deeper understanding of your own life, one of those stories whose voice you'll continue to hear long after you've turned the last page."--Bret Anthony Johnston, internationally bestselling author of Remember Me Like This

"Those who like novels by Joe Hill and Pat Conroy will also enjoy this first novel. . . . The book begins as a thriller and ends as a story of personal growth and redemption. The writing is vivid and engaging, and it works for adults as well as for mature young adult readers."--Library Journal (starred review)

"[Francesca] Serritella steps forward with a many-faceted first novel. . . . Serritella makes keen use of quantum theories about time and simultaneity in this busily plotted, emotionally astute, thoughtfully paranormal, witty, and suspenseful drama involving historical figures, academic ruthlessness, and the tragic riddles of mental illness. Serritella has also created a sensitive and searching tale about the courage and fortitude of a smart young woman in mourning and in peril. Cady is a compelling narrator."--Booklist

"It's tight, it's fresh, and it's a very accomplished debut novel."--Bookreporter
