really liked it

I somehow missed getting a full review up for this. I’ll say it was the holidays and then a new semester of teaching and just life in general that caused me to miss this one.

BUT: I still remember almost everything about this book. From plot, to characters, to writing style, I haven’t really forgotten much. That’s a hallmark of a good read for sure. I loved Rose. She’s a flawed, strong female character. She isn’t a “strong girl” trope nor a damsel in distress. She’s like, well, me, if my life had taken a different path. I imagine a lot of female readers will be able to see themselves in her and that takes considerable skill.

Horror? This book has it in spades. There’s a basement scene that made my SKIN CRAWL and I loved every part of it.

Be sure to check out all the amazing reviews for this one and pick up a copy. I hope Hightower has a new book out soon!
