Summary
Rose Marshall died in 1952 in Buckley Township, Michigan, run off the road by a man named Bobby Cross--a man who had sold his soul to live forever, and intended to use her death to pay the price of his immortality. Trouble was, he didn't ask Rose what she thought of the idea. It's been more than sixty years since that night, and she's still sixteen, and she's still running. They have names for her all over the country: the Girl in the Diner. The Phantom Prom Date. The Girl in the Green Silk Gown. Mostly she just goes by "Rose," a hitchhiking ghost girl with her thumb out and her eyes fixed on the horizon, trying to outrace a man who never sleeps, never stops, and never gives up on the idea of claiming what's his. She's the angel of the overpass, she's the darling of the truck stops, and she's going to figure out a way to win her freedom. After all, it's not like it can kill her. You can't kill what's already dead

Summary
The legend of the vanishing wayfarer has been retold for centuries and appears in cultures around the globe. In this version of the ghost story, author Seanan McGuire identifies the original stranded teenager. Her name is Rose, she's perpetually 16 years old, and she's been roaming deserted highways for decades, but now she's decided it's time to get revenge on the man who killed her. Recounting Rose's death, her life in the ghost world, and her search for her killer, Sparrow Hill Road offers a chilling combination of love story and murder mystery. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
