“Twelve years ago Stella and Jeanie vanished while picking strawberries. Stella returned minutes later, with no memory of what happened. Jeanie was never seen or heard from again.

Now Stella is seventeen, and she’s over it. She’s the lucky one who survived, and sure, the case is still cloaked in mystery—and it’s her small town’s ugly legacy—but Stella is focused on the coming summer. She’s got a great best friend, a hookup with an irresistibly crooked smile, and two months of beach days stretching out before her.

Then along comes a corpse, a little girl who washes up in an ancient cemetery after a mudslide, and who has red hair just like Jeanie did. Suddenly memories of that haunting day begin to return, and when Stella discovers that other red-headed girls have gone missing as well, she begins to suspect that something sinister is at work.

And before the summer ends, Stella will learn the hard way that if you hunt for monsters, you will find them.”

Why We’re Waiting:


First of all, I have this ARC and it looks, AWESOME! It’s coming up shortly on my TBR list! I’m very excited about it! Secondly, I’ve recently discovered that I’m beginning to like Contemporary again, who would have known?! After reading The Haunting of Sunshine Girl as well, I’m finding I have a solid interest in books that make things in the night go BUMP. It was so much fun reading a ghost story and I’d really like to try my luck with reading this creepy thriller as well! Plus, it alludes to monsters, but we all have no idea what exactly those monsters are and now I’m extremely curious…


I may be a wimp when it comes to watching creepy movies, but I always enjoy reading a book that makes you want to sleep with your light on. The title alone gives a creepy vibe to it, and the fact that monsters is mentioned in the summary makes this more appealing to me! Even if the monster turns out to be just a serial killer or something and not an actually monster, sometimes real “monsters” can be way more frightening than imaginary ones. I am a huge fan of mystery and crime shows, so this book really seems like the perfect read for me when I need a quick break from fantasy. I haven’t read a good mystery or creepy book in a pretty long time, so I am ready to get my hands on this one. Besides, I am really interested to know how this story will play out and what exactly Stella discovers…

    • Haha, oh my goodness, that’s awesome!! I love finding books like that. I’m always curious as to whether the characters match up in some way to the real life person I know. =) I have yet to find a book with a main character named Kelly though. I think my name is too common!
