City of Graves

City of Graves is a young adult thriller that will appeal to fans of I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga, None Shall Sleep by Ellie Marney, and Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff.


Finch Marlowe is gifted and privileged.

She knows she’s lucky. Except her wealthy parents have high expectations for her future. Every extracurricular activity and every volunteer endeavor contributes to the never ending quest for a perfect college application – and Finch feels every bit of that pressure. Failure is not an option.

But Finch has a secret.


She belongs to the city’s urban exploration community – a dangerous and thrilling pastime that involves exploring abandoned buildings. Moving through these forgotten places gives Finch with a sense of freedom she’s never experienced at home, and she begins to unearth her real self in this new community.

However, everything changes when Finch finds a body in one of the buildings. Then Finch discovers a chilling connection between the victim and the urban exploration community that has become so important to her, and her newfound world begins to crumble. As Finch becomes the target of a killer, she finds herself questioning everything she knows in a desperate attempt to save herself.
