The Precious Dreadful by Steven Parlato

Into the Wild

The Precious Dreadful Read Online Free - Teddi Alder is just trying to figure out her life.

When she joins SUMMERTEENS, a library writing group, she’s only looking to keep herself busy, not go digging around in her subconscious. But as she writes, disturbing memories of her childhood friend Corey bubble to the surface, and Teddi begins to question everything: her friendship with her BFF Willa, how much her mom really knows, and even her own memories. Teddi fears she’s losing her grip on reality—as evidenced by that mysterious ghost-girl who emerges from the park pool one night, the one who won’t leave Teddi alone. To top it all off, she finds herself juggling two guys with potential, a quirky new boy named Joy and her handsome barista crush Aidan, who has some issues of his own.

As the summer unfolds, Teddi is determined to get to the bottom of everything—her feelings, the mysterious ghost-girl, and the memories of Corey that refuse to be ignored.

I really enjoyed this novel! I was dragged in by the premise and was a bit shocked that this book is not what I expected but I still was completely engulfed in the story and loved Teddi. Teddi was a bit complex and complicated but it made me love her more. I also enjoyed the pace and the mystery...

How to rate this novel? 3.5, probably. One night, Teddi sees a girl in the park pool near her house but when she her crush Aidan gets there, no one is around.

Rating: 3.5 Stars I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this one. The Precious Dreadful caught my eye, because it eluded to some sort of mystery, suppressed memories, and some sort of paranormal element, but what kept my interest was Teddi. •Pro: Teddi was wonderfully complicated and I loved her...

SO WOW. If I had known how much I would love The Precious Dreadful, I would have gone at it a lot sooner! I let it sit on my computer for thirty whole days. So I had a feeling I would like The Precious Dreadful just from that weird description. I love how the ghost is mentioned so offhandedly. “Oh...
