Join Books of Wonder for this Delightfully Spooky YA Debut!

Join us in-store for the launch of If I Have to Be Haunted, the magnetic enemies-to-lovers story with a spectral twist from MIRANDA SUN! This spirited adventure YA debut is sure to enchant you!

In If I Have to Be Haunted, Cara Tang doesn’t want to be haunted.

Look, the dead have issues, and Cara has enough of her own. Her overbearing mother insists she be the “perfect” Chinese American daughter — which means suppressing her ghost-speaking powers — and she keeps getting into fights with Zacharias Coleson, the local golden boy whose smirk makes her want to set things on fire.

Then she stumbles across Zach’s dead body in the woods. He’s even more infuriating as a ghost, but Cara’s the only one who can see him — and save him.

Agreeing to resurrect him puts her at odds with her mother, draws her into a dangerous liminal world of monsters and magic — and worse, leaves her stuck with Zach. Yet as she and Zach grow closer, forced to depend on each other to survive, Cara finds the most terrifying thing is that she might not hate him so much after all. Maybe this is why her mother warned her about ghosts.
