Synopsis… Something is brewing in Southwest Harbor, Maine. Only two people know the truth about a tragic accident that claims the lives of a popular couple, and one of them is dead. That doesn’t stop Cormac Boisverde from coming back from the Afterlife to set the record straight, even though he must make an impossible choice to do it. Meanwhile, seventeen-year-old Grace Coffin moves to Southwest Harbor to finish Senior year at Mount Desert Island High School, and she finds herself embroiled in a supernatural mystery, even as she struggles with the emotional pressure cooker inside herself. Grace and her mother had hoped for a fresh start in life, but they cannot escape their past before confronting it one last time. Cormac learns to navigate Undead life and the unfortunate results of self-embalming, as he haunts the man responsible for his wife’s death, learning important lessons about revenge and forgiveness in the process. With the help of her dead neighbor, and the clever boy next door, Grace finds the courage to fight for her future and heal the old wounds that prevent her from trusting her mother. In the process, she precipitates a #metoo revival at MDI High that reinvigorates an important discussion on harassment, assault, and bullying.
