Rose Marshall died in 1952 in Buckley Township, Michigan, run off the road by a man named Bobby Crossa man who had sold his soul to live forever, and intended to use her death to pay the price of his immortality. Trouble was, he didnt ask Rose what she thought of the idea.Its been more than sixty years since that night, and shes still sixteen, and shes still running.They have names for her all over the country: the Girl in the Diner. The Phantom Prom Date. The Girl in the Green Silk Gown. Mostly she just goes by Rose, a hitchhiking ghost girl with her thumb out and her eyes fixed on the horizon, trying to outrace a man who never sleeps, never stops, and never gives up on the idea of claiming whats his. Shes the angel of the overpass, shes the darling of the truck stops, and shes going to figure out a way to win her freedom. After all, its not like it can kill her.You cant kill whats already dead.
