The Unbound by Victoria Schwab
Imagine a place where the dead rest on shelves like books. Each body has a story to tell, a life seen in pictures that only Librarians can read. The dead are called Histories, and the vast realm in which they rest is the Archive. MacKenzie bishop, a Keeper tasked with with stopping violent Histories from waking up and escaping the Archive, almost lost her life to a History named Owen this past summer. Now she finds herself haunted by Owen--he makes appearances in her nightmares and she begins seeing him everywhere, even while awake. Mackenzie knows she sent Owen into a void from which there is no return. So why does he seem so real? Meanwhile, Mackenzie begins her junior year at Hyde Prep. Being new is hard enough without spotting Owen at every turn. Mackenzie soon learns that fellow Keeper Wesley Ayers also attends Hyde. When Mac confides in Wes, he seems more concerned about Mac's sanity than the possiblity of Owen's escape.
