Kemper Academy is over a hundred years old, but it has only recently reopened after a series of murders and stories of hauntings shut it down. Avlynn, a new student, refuses to let the rumors scare her, chalking them up to a bit of friendly freshman hazing. But when night falls and screams draw her from her room, she finds the truth is much more horrifying than any ghost story.
HER was a quicker read than expected, but non the less satisfying for what it was. I have seen it advertised as a novella and a short story, and it definitely falls under the latter. It is a short little glimpse at the life of a new student at a haunted boarding school and successfully begins with heightened tension that is maintained throughout the story. This is something I would love to read more of, and I would definitely appreciate getting to know our main character a little better before her narrative takes off. As it was, even for a short story it ran a little short and I failed to connect with the MC. However, I could easily see this little ghost story being fleshed out into a larger, more expansive, novel.
