Into the Water

A single mother turns up dead at the bottom of the river that runs through town. Earlier in the summer, a vulnerable teenage girl met the same fate. They are not the first women lost to these dark waters, but their deaths disturb the river and its history, dredging up secrets long submerged.

Left behind is a lonely fifteen-year-old girl. Parentless and friendless, she now finds herself in the care of her mother's sister, a fearful stranger who has been dragged back to the place she deliberately ran from—a place to which she vowed she'd never return.

With the same propulsive writing and acute understanding of human instincts that captivated millions of readers around the world in her explosive debut thriller, The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins delivers an urgent, twisting, deeply satisfying read that hinges on the deceptiveness of emotion and memory, as well as the devastating ways that the past can reach a long arm into the present.

Beware a calm surface—you never know what lies beneath.

As soon as I saw this was out I wanted to read it. I still have my copy on hold but I'm ready as soon as it comes in.

JadeShea I'm waiting on my copy to come in at the Library. I have it on hold! Then I will start reading it. I'm interested in what this is like.

Do you know if it is in the girl's point of view?

JadeShea I think so. But not 100 percent sure.


Sara | 246 comments Mod

haha alright. I'll still hold off for a few days. I have too many books started at once (as per usual).

Yay! Just warning you, it's not a happy one (but that shouldn't shock you if you've read her other book).

No, this is the first book I've read of hers. I figured it wasn't happy, but it is a crazy twisted story kind of like The Butterfly Garden?

Did you read that one? That book gave me nightmares, but I loved it.

That looks good!


message 21: by JadeShea (new)

JadeShea Did anyone read this one?

I just couldn't get into it. I hated the different points of view, and how I was so confused in the beginning.
