Shadow Hills by Anastasia Hopcus
Goodreads synopsis:

Since her sister’s mysterious death, Persephone “Phe” Archer has been plagued by a series of disturbing dreams. Determined to find out what happened to her sister, Phe enrolls at Devenish Prep in Shadow Hills, Massachusetts—the subject of her sister’s final diary entry.

After stepping on campus, Phe immediately realizes that there’s something different about this place—an unexplained epidemic that decimated the town in the 1700s, an ancient and creepy cemetery, and gorgeous boy Zach—and somehow she’s connected to it all. 

But the more questions she asks and the deeper she digs, the more entangled Phe becomes in the haunting past of Shadow Hills. Finding what links her to this town . . . might cost her her life

I found this one on another book blog at the end of last week, and thought it looked really interesting. I find that just from the synopsis, I already like the character (although, that's just because I happen to like the name Persephone), and I really want to know how she's connected to it all.
It's a good sign when just the synopsis can do that. Hopefully I'll be able to get my paws on a copy soon!

I only found out about it last week, Jen, but it looks fantastic!
It'll be one of the books I get when I've shifted a few more of the shelves :P

Very intriguing! I'm wondering if this is another take on Persephone/Hades myth?
