Why I Picked It Up
The description and cover pulled me in for sure.
Famous First Words
“You are such a priss.”
Sixteen-year-old Addy is having strange dreams about a cabin in the woods and her father. Meanwhile, her tiny town is reeling from the murders of three teenagers, and then four. Addy and her boyfriend, Eli, search for clues and with information from Eli’s dad, a deputy sheriff, Addy soon realizes that her father was a serial killer and that her dreams of the cabin are really based in reality. But he is dead, so who is copycat killing now?
My Thoughts & Takeaways
Addy dyes the tips of blonde hair black, dresses in black clothing, and looks just about nothing like her “perfect” older sister. Addy has been having dreams all of a sudden of a child in and near a cabin. They feel familiar but not enough to think anything further. But, then people start dying eerily similar to those in her dreams.
I really liked Addy and it kind of reminded me of myself. I also loved how the author didn’t do the typical opposite sisters’ routine where they hate each other. Addy and Mary actually are very close despite their differences.
This was a short and intense read – I didn’t know anything of it before starting but I finished it in one sitting. The premise of the story was fantastic and right up my horror, true crime loving self.
The cliffhanger was great and I can’t wait to read book 2!
