I didn’t want to take the traditional path. First, I wasn’t ready for college. Second, I was going to live with my best friend, Tiff, and work at the Haunted House. Third, did I mention the hot guy Josh that works there too?
The most exciting thing about Austria’s new job, at a local haunted house, was the fact that the toughest looking people screamed the loudest. But when she meets the boy without a home, Josh, Austria’s life takes intriguing and eventful turns. Up until now, Josh has managed to hang with his Street crowd, but they’re in danger, and so is Austria, the girl Josh recently fell for. The group finds themselves joining forces with previously considered enemies who also now find themselves in danger.
Deeply compassionate and full of twists, Altered Helix captures the struggle of polarized people that must work together for the greater good.
The next day at the haunted house the shadows are back and in force. I feel as though they move with my pulse. I wonder if yesterday’s conversation is causing me to imagine the shadows. As if reading my mind, one appears next to me. Nothing could be causing this shadow. No obstacles block the light there. The shadow seems to be in the shape of a person. Could it be my father? This shadow seems more aggressive than the others. I have to squeeze the pressure point between my thumb and forefinger in order to maintain my concentration. It’s rehearsals again today. We’re going through rooms one at a time. As we walk to the room by Team Decapitated, a shadow flows right in front of me. I reflexively take a step back and run into Jack.
