My debut novel PERDITA (Simon Pulse) was published in 2015. It's a spooky contemporary book about girls, ghosts, and madness.

Nice things nicefaces said about it:

"Intimate, fascinating. An edgy, intriguing debut novel of suspense, suspicion, and surprise." --Kirkus Reviews"

Arielle is a sympathetic, likable, and realistic narrator, thanks to Gardner's keen ear for teen dialogue.... An absorbing mystery...that will hold readers' attention throughout." --School Library Journal

"Told in first person, Faith Gardner paints an intense psychological portrait that's fascinating and chilling." --Bustle.com
