Interweaving young romance, survivor guilt, and the supernatural while keeping a firm base of normal, average, US college life, Noser creates a story that provides occult mystery and the travails of love without allowing either to steal the limelight.
Emma Roberts is a responsible student, putting her college essays ahead of partying, volunteering as a tutor, and staying sober; she even puts her education ahead of spending time with Mike, the most handsome frisbee thrower she’s ever seen. But when her sense of responsibility leads her to follow a drunken Mike into the river, she is blamed for his death. Ostracised by former friends and guilt-ridden, she chances across a book of spells left by her former-roommate’s sister, and decides she has nothing to lose. As her ritual reaches its climax, the river gives up the dead – but not the dead man she anticipated.
