Description

From the author of the New York Times bestseller Wilder Girls comes a twisty thriller about a girl whose past has always been a mystery - until she decides to return to her mother's hometown, where history has a tendency to repeat itself . . .

Ever since Margot was born, it's been just her and her mother. No answers to Margot's questions. No history to hold on to. Just the two of them, stuck in their run-down apartment, struggling to get along.

But that's not enough for Margot. She wants family. She wants a past. And when she finds a photograph pointing her to a town called Phalene, she leaves. But when Margot gets there, it's not what she bargained for.

Margot's mother left for a reason. But was it to hide her past? Or was it to protect Margot from what's still there?

Burn Our Bodies Down is a blistering horror-thriller from YA author Rory Power that will grip you from its very first page, and won't let you go until long after you've put it down.

I will keep a candle lit after this one. -- Nic Stone, New York Times bestselling author of Dear Martin Rory Power's prose hits like a lightning strike in this deliriously creepy tale, the kind of slow-crawling horror that'll keep your nightmares up at night. -- Melissa Albert, New York Times bestselling author of The Hazel Wood
