Genre: YA Horror

Title: Brain Damage

Word Count: 60,000

Hogwart's House: Ravenclaw. Des is clever and open minded. Though there just might be a little Slytherin in him too.

Pitch: Every ghost has a story. After a wicked head injury sixteen-year-old Des knows them all. When a psychopath viciously murders his classmates, Des must persuade the dead to channel their vengeance to stop the killer.

First 250:

The human brain is similar in texture and consistency to soft tofu. I know this because my neurologist told me so. A fact he randomly passed on while performing one of hundreds of tests before I was released from the hospital. It’s kind of a gross fact that makes choking down my mother’s attempts at vegetarian cooking even less palatable. It always ends with me picturing her scooping tofu out of a skull and into a skillet, giving the whole experience a less vegetarian, more pygmy cannibal horror movie feel. 

The inside of my head currently feels as though it has been lined with tiny jackhammers intent on liquefying the already squishy surface of my brain. Of course my neurologist also informed me that the brain has no pain receptors of its own, so what I’m really feeling is a face-neck-scalp ache.

My neurologist is kind of a douche.

I open my eyes and . . .

I’m close enough to kiss a dead girl.

What the hell would my neurologist say about that? Pushing the palms of my hands into my eye sockets lessens the pressure slightly but does nothing to stop my thoughts from jack-rabbitting around the inside of my brain.

There is a dead chick lying next to you.

I turn my head and peek through splayed fingers.

Alexandra Maskowitz.

Well, shit.

For a moment I’m absolutely certain my eyeballs are going to explode in a gush of blood and fluid and eyelashes. If they did, I wouldn’t have to see her.
