Okay, I like this. Unusual. And great title!
The story is Piggybacker (Vessel of Lost Souls, #1) by Mikki Noble, out a couple of day back in the Thriller, Urban Fantasy, Young Adult Genre.
TOO LATE TO SAVE HIS LIFE. NOT TOO LATE TO BRING HIM BACK. Everyone thinks Marley tried to take her own life, that is, except Marley. After her mother sends her to a youth center for troubled teens, she starts hearing the voice of a boy who claims he was murdered and begins questioning her own sanity. The voice is Gavin, a seventeen-year-old boy who promises Marley he can help her find the truth about what happened the day she supposedly tried to kill herself—if she completes a resurrection spell in the next four days.
Upon discovering Gavin’s death in the newspaper, Marley realizes she’s not hallucinating, and that she has a chance to save Gavin’s soul and clear her name. The task seems simple: complete the spell, then she and Gavin are free, right? But a powerful, unseen force is determined to stop her, and soon Marley finds herself following clues from the universe to find ingredients for the ritual to save herself and her newfound friend, and most of all, to find the truth about what really happened that day.
Piggybacker is the first in Mikki Noble’s spell-binding Vessel of Lost Souls trilogy, and promises a thrilling mystery with powerful enemies, broken relationships, captivating magic, and two souls both caught up in a plot beyond any they could ever imagine.

How about we talk about music with Marley, Gavin, and the whole band?
Okay, Piggybacker cast, please tell us your favorite song and why.
Marley: My favorite’s a tie between Stronger by Britney Spears and Fighter by Christina Aguilera because they remind me of my inner strength.
Gavin: Immortals by Fall Out Boy. I’m not sure why.
Marley: Um, because it’s the theme song to his favorite movie.
Gavin: I don’t know what’s she’s talking about.
Marley: Are you sure, Gavin? It’s not from a certain kid’s movie you…
Gavin: Okay, it’s from my favorite kid’s movie. I admit it.
Marley: You’re so cute.
Gavin: *eye roll*
Kimmy: I used to love Stitches but now my favorite is Treat You Better by Shawn Mendes because it reminds me of my own Shawn.
Shawn: *kisses her hand.*
Circe: I don’t have a favorite, though I favor a band called OneRepublic. The singer’s voice makes me happy.
Marley: You listen to music? I didn’t know that.
Circe: Oh, sweet girl. There’s not much to do on the island when I’m alone.
Crystal: My favorite song is Chicago by Benny Goodman. I’ve always enjoyed a good jazz record.
Taylor: Jazz is cool. I don’t have a favorite song. I love anything by my girl, Beyoncé. That counts, right?
Marley: Why not? Beyoncé rules!
Taylor: Yeah, she does.
Shawn: Maroon 5’s Moves Like Jagger is my favorite. It just makes you want to dance.
Kimmy: *snorts* Tell them the truth, Shawn.
Shawn: *whispers* I don’t want to Kimmy.
Shawn: Fine. My real favorite song is Phil Collins’ True Colors.
Noah: I don’t know it. What’s wrong with it?
Kimmy: Nothing. He’s just a man and doesn’t like to have feelings.
Shawn: I have feelings for you and I’ll tell everyone.
Kimmy: *blushes and kisses his cheek.*
Sammy? What’s your favorite?
Sammy: Insensitive by Jann Arden. She’s Canadian.
Gavin: He only listens to Canadian music. Isn’t that cute?
Sammy: Hey, I’m not cute. *pouts and scooches closer to his Mom.*
Melissa: It’s okay, buddy. Um, my favorite is Express Yourself. Madonna.
Len: Mine is Keep Talking. Pink Floyd
Any special reason?
Len: Not really.
Derek: My favorite’s by Ooo Baby Baby by Smokey Robinson and the Miracles. My grandfather got me into the classics.
Noah: Is it my turn?
Yes. What’s your favorite, Noah?
Noah: My favorite’s The Death of Romance by Zeromancer. It’s the last thing my dad ever bought me. I don’t think he knew who they were, or he never would have bought it. *laughs*
Uncle Sam: I’m a country guy. I guess my favorite song is by Rascal Flatts. It’s called Bless the Broken Road. It’s a sweet song.
Genie: See that, Marley? You get your soft nature from your family. *smirks wickedly* My favorite song is California Gurls by Katy Perry because I’m a California Girl. I was, before we moved to this small crap town.
Derek: Be nice.
Gavin: We’ll all pitch in and send you back there if you like.
On that note, it’s time to say goodnight, everyone!
“What do I have to do?”
Follow the signs, he tells me. I see his lips move in the mirror, though I still hear his voice echo in my head.
Gavin’s reflection disappears and somehow, I know he’s gone. This magic thing is extremely annoying.
As far back as she can remember, Mikki was creating characters and stories in her head. It wasn’t until fate brushed the tip of its wings over her eyes that she began to see that writing was what she was born to do. She loves animals, reading, everything supernatural related, and enjoys spending her free time on social media whenever she can.
