The spine-tingling horror of Stephen King meets an eerie mystery worthy of Sara Shepard's Pretty Little Liars series in Kate Karyus Quinn's haunting debut.
On a cool autumn night, Annaliese Rose Gordon stumbled out of the woods and into a high school party. She was screaming. Drenched in blood. Then she vanished.
A year later, Annaliese is found wandering down a road hundreds of miles away. She doesn't know who she is. She doesn't know how she got there. She only knows one thing: She is not the real Annaliese Rose Gordon.
Now Annaliese is haunted by strange visions and broken memories. Memories of a reckless, desperate wish . . . a bloody razor . . . and the faces of other girls who disappeared. Piece by piece, Annaliese's fractured memories come together to reveal a violent, endless cycle that she will never escape—unless she can unlock the twisted secrets of her past.
A reckless wish taken from the darkest desires of the heart . . .
A bloody razor engraved with the names of girls who turned to dust . . .
An endless cycle that feeds off loneliness and craves destruction . . .
Together, these pieces form a twisted puzzle that Annaliese has to solve. Trapped in a body that isn't hers—with no memory of how she got there—she must unlock the secrets of her past in order to escape the horrors of her future.
