As soon as I read the tag line, I was sold. Thankfully this book delivered.

Loved Ashlyn and Rhys. They're great siblings and it was fun seeing their banter while they navigated such an odd environment. Dane and Beth were great secondary characters. And the collective group of townspeople not getting completely fleshed out was an extremely effective way to complete the feeling of isolation. You know, in case the corn wasn't doing it for you.

Insanely creepy and filled with delicious twists and swoons, this book had me captivated from the very first chapter. My only complaint was the ending. I would have liked something a little more concrete.

**Huge thanks to Putnam and Edelweiss for providing the arc in exchange for an honest review**

Extra special thanks to the Penguin booth at SDCC for giving me a physical arc.

Other than the fact it's a creepy cult who worship our five-hundred-year-old ancestor who's supposedly hell-bent on wearing Mom's body like a skin suit, it's *exactly* like a Norman Rockwell painting." <--- Rhys is awesome."
