Book Description:
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.

If you’ve read my review of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, you’ll know that “wtfery” was a pretty big term in that review.  This is one will be about the same.  There is tons of wtfery afoot.

Quinn has come up with such a unique story line.  You follow Annaliese in trying to figure out who, or what, she is.  The memories often come on at inopportune times, and leave her with more questions.  I enjoyed being able to try to solve the puzzle that Annaliese is.  Just when I thought I had everything figured out, I was completely blind-sided.  There are also moments that leave you thinking “wtf.”  But not in a bad way, just in an did that seriously just happen sort of way.

The characters in the book are complex.  They each have desires and wants, but are also battling their own demons.  There’s a reason for everything that has happened, even if we don’t know what it is yet.
Sorry this review is so short, but you can’t really go into detail with anything without spoiling part of the story.  It was a great, creepy read.  I can’t wait to see what else this author has to offer us.
