About the book: “A gripping, heartbreaking, emotionally substantial look at [the] allure of danger.” – Kirkus Reviews, starred review
Fatal attraction, primal fear, survival in the forest: From the author of the Printz Honor Book STOLEN, the highly anticipated thriller about deadly games played in the dark.
Ashlee Parker is dead, and Emily Shepherd's dad is accused of the crime. A former soldier suffering from PTSD, he emerges from the woods carrying the girl's broken body. "Gone," he says, then retreats into silence.
What really happened that wild night? Emily knows in her bones that her father is innocent -- isn't he? Before he's convicted, she's got to find out the truth. Does Damon Hilary, Ashlee's charismatic boyfriend, have the answers? Or is he only playing games with her -- the kinds of games that can kill?
I am so excited to be hosting a giveaway for Lucy Christopher's latest book! Ms, Christopher is an excellent writer and her books should be shared.
One of the teens at my library recently reviewed The Killing Woods, saying
"...Christopher creates such a smooth and emotional flavor amongst the characters. Her ability to make the readers empathize so well prove that Christopher is wonderfully talented."
With a great teem review, you know you want to check it out!
