The Taking of Jake Livingston by Ryan Douglass: It's hard enough fitting in at St. Clair Prep, where he is one of the few Black kids, but Jake Livingston can also see the dead.

As Sawyer begins to haunt Jake, high school turns into a survival game as bodies begin turning up in his neighborhood.

Vespertine by Margaret Rogerson: The Gray Sisters are nuns who cleanse the bodies of the deceased, allowing their souls to pass on and preventing them from rising as spirits who hunger for the living.

Only...she does so by awakening a revenant, an ancient spirit of extraordinary power, bound to a saint's relic. But as knowledge of the vespertines, priestesses trained to wield these relics, has been lost, the only teacher for Artemisia to learn from is the revenant itself.
