Thank you to Sourcebooks Fire for gifting me a copy of this book to read and share my review.



Sixteen-year-old Skye is done playing the knight in shining armor for her insufferable younger sister, Deirdre. Moving across the country seems like the perfect chance to start over.

In their isolated new neighborhood, Skye manages to fit in, but Deirdre withdraws from everyone, becoming fixated on the swampy woods behind their house and building monstrous sculptures out of sticks and bones.

Then Deirdre disappears.

And when something awful comes scratching at Skye’s window in the middle of the night, claiming she’s the only one who can save Deirdre, Skye knows she will stop at nothing to bring her sister home.



16 year old Skye is looking after her younger sister Deirdre, 13 years old, one evening while their parents are gone out. Skye ends up falling asleep and their mom comes home asking Skye where Deirdre is. They look for her but she is nowhere to be found – she is missing!

Why is Deirdre so fascinated with the swampy woods behind their house? What was there that she found so interesting? A great horror of a book and fans of YA will love this novel. It isn’t too scary, and the cover is totally creepy and I LOVE it! How come no one can seem to find Deirdre? They have seemed to looked everywhere to no avail – Deirdre seems to have simply vanished.

Will they be able to find Deirdre, or is she gone for good?


MY RATING: 3/5 stars
