This novel immediately plunges the reader into a thrilling nightmare where you never know what’s around the corner. I loved the setting since I have visited the mountains in Pennsylvania before, and have also thought of the woods as threatening. Right away, the author drew me into the mystery of the missing Black girls. I was also very angry that no one apparently cared that these girls had gone missing.
I was a little confused by the second half of the book. No spoilers, but I had trouble understanding how the true villain came to be. The author hinted at it, but I was left with questions.
Overall, though, this was a good read. Thanks to NetGalley for the review copy.
