The spine-tingling horror of Stephen King meets an eerie mystery worthy of Sara Shepard's Pretty Little Liars series in Kate Karyus Quinn's haunting debut.
On a cool autumn night, Annaliese Rose Gordon stumbled out of the woods and into a high school party. She was screaming. Drenched in blood. Then she vanished.
A year later, Annaliese is found wandering down a road hundreds of miles away. She doesn't know who she is. She doesn't know how she got there. She only knows one thing: She is not the real Annaliese Rose Gordon.
Now Annaliese is haunted by strange visions and broken memories. Memories of a reckless, desperate wish . . . a bloody razor . . . and the faces of other girls who disappeared. Piece by piece, Annaliese's fractured memories come together to reveal a violent, endless cycle that she will never escape—unless she can unlock the twisted secrets of her past.
This was a really fantastic book! I loved all the elements in it-the mystery, the horror, the supernatural, and the romance! They all came together in the mixing pot that is the YA umbrella genre! I just love YA!
So to have been missing for a year, but with no memories of her family, and only flashes of some pretty creepy and horrible things, well, Annaliese has some things to investigate! But not alone! because there's someone to help her!
Well, the real Annaliese, she makes a poor decision. She sells her soul, to have sex with the hot guy at school. But she didn't know that it was her soul she was selling, because that wasn't specified-she wasn't told what she was trading in exchange for this wish. Which was not smart of her!
This whole world of wish fulfilment at a cost, and living forever, it was interesting and scary! And in the end, the girl that replaced Annaliese, well, I think she made the right choice in the end! And while there is still some mystery with the 4, well, that's OK! Makes for some inquiring questions after reading!
This was a really fantastic book, and I can't wait to check out Kate Karyus Quinn's next book!
