I’m almost positive I had a trailer in mind for this week, but I can’t remember which one I was thinking of! Thankfully, Vania at VLC Photo Productions sent me her YouTube link where she has a variety of YA book trailers she’s created. I didn’t know it, but I’ve actually used a couple of her trailers in past posts. Thank you, Vania!
After looking at some of her trailers, I decided on The Revenant by Sonia Gensler. The trailer piqued my interest and after reading the summary on Goodreads I’m really interested in reading this 2011 debut. I’d love to know what you think if you’ve read the book and/or what you think of the trailer.
The Revenant (Summary from Goodreads): When Willie arrives in Indian Territory, she knows only one thing: no one can find out who she really is. To escape a home she doesn’t belong in anymore, she assumes the name of a former classmate and accepts a teaching job at the Cherokee Female Seminary.
Nothing prepares her for what she finds there. Her pupils are the daughters of the Cherokee elite—educated and more wealthy than she, and the school is cloaked in mystery. A student drowned in the river last year, and the girls whisper that she was killed by a jealous lover. Willie’s room is the very room the dead girl slept in. The students say her spirit haunts it.
Willie doesn’t believe in ghosts, but when strange things start happening at the school, she isn’t sure anymore. She’s also not sure what to make of a boy from the nearby boys’ school who has taken an interest in her—his past is cloaked in secrets. Soon, even she has to admit that the revenant may be trying to tell her something. . . .
