The blurb from the back of the book:
When the bodies of two girls are found torn apart in her hometown, Lauren is surprised, but she also expects that the police won’t find the killer. After all, the year before her father’s body was found with his heart missing, and since then everyone has moved on. Even her best friend, Miranda, has become more interested in boys than in spending time at the old ghost tree, the way they used to when they were kids. So when Lauren has a vision of a monster dragging the remains of the girls through the woods, she knows she can’t just do nothing. Not like the rest of her town.
But as she draws closer to answers, she realizes that the foundation of her seemingly normal town might be rotten at the centre. And that if nobody else stands for the missing, she will.
I loved this story! It was captivating from the very first page! I couldn’t put it down!
I loved the characters, Lauren and Alex especially, and felt that they were really well thought-out. I also liked that the story was told through multiple POVs. I find that you really get to know all of the characters this way.
There was definitely a spooky atmosphere through the book, but more blood and gore rather than dread and suspense.
There was lots of twists and turns too which was great, and it kept you guessing all the way through.
If you like Christina Henry’s books then you definitely need to read this!
I gave it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
