Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Release Date: September 15th 2015
Debut author Dawn Kurtagich is dead on in this terrifying psychological thriller!
Over two decades have passed since the fire at Elmbridge High, an inferno that took the lives of three teenagers. Not much was known about the events leading up to the tragedy - only that one student, Carly Johnson, vanished without a trace...
...until a diary is found hidden in the ruins.
But the diary, badly scorched, does not belong to Carly Johnson. It belongs to Kaitlyn Johnson, a girl who shouldn't exist Who was Kaitlyn? Why did she come out only at night? What is her connection to Carly?
The case has been reopened. Police records are being reexamined: psychiatric reports, video footage, text messages, e-mails. And the diary.
The diary that paints a much more sinister version of events than was ever made publicly known.
Though I don't like watching horror movies, I somehow have a weird fascination with horror novels. This book sounds fantastically creepy and really quite scary. I've been hearing nothing but great things about this book. This book would be a great halloween read and I'm kind of looking forward to being freaked out by this novel!
