Review quote

Kurtagich's horror imagery is satisfying and affecting-her descriptions of the day-to-day decay the girls face are as rich and scary as the monstrous man who scuttles around on all fours and the teeming mud pits that are waiting in the woods. A great next read for teens who enjoy being scared. SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL Kurtagich has created an incredibly assured, claustrophobic horror with a fractured and troubled teen narrator that will have you gripped to the very last page Book Trust A very dark story that begs to be read with the lights firmly switched on -- I loved it School Librarianshow more
