You may think me biased, being murdered myself. But my state of being has nothing to do with the curiosity toward my own species, if we can be called such. We do not go gentle, as your poet encourages, into that good night.I was sold the moment the first section of the synopsis referenced Dylan Thomas's "Do Not Go Gentle', aka my favorite poem ever (and I don't even like poetry that much.) It doesn't hurt that the book sounds plain awesome otherwise and that the cover is gorgeous. I NEED.
A dead girl walks the streets.
She hunts murderers. Child killers, much like the man who threw her body down a well three hundred years ago.
And when a strange boy bearing stranger tattoos moves into the neighborhood so, she discovers, does something else. And soon both will be drawn into the world of eerie doll rituals and dark Shinto exorcisms that will take them from American suburbia to the remote valleys and shrines of Aomori, Japan.
Because the boy has a terrifying secret - one that would just kill to get out.
The Girl from the Well is a YA horror novel pitched as Dexter meets The Grudge, based on a well-loved Japanese ghost story.
So what are you guys waiting on this week? :)
