Don’t Miss: The Depths

An island adventure turns strange…

Thank you to Penguin Teen and @netgalley for the complimentary book!

Addie accompanies her mom and new husband on their honeymoon to Eulalie Island. It’s not long before she realizes there is something special, and strange, about the island. The flowers change colors, the birds call her name, and she finds a little girl alone in the woods who wants to play. When Addie learns of the two girls who died on the island long ago, she wonders if the island is also trying to claim her.

💭 There is just enough realness and oddness combined in this one. I thought Addie’s back story was interesting and it helped to make sense of why the island would love her. The continued description of the sisters and their appearance as Addie sees them was enough to make me gag, but it added to the idea that something sinister was afoot. What was difficult for me was that I didn’t really love any of the characters, and I think it’s necessary to love Addie and Billy for this to work completely. This is definitely one that fantasy and horror readers would enjoy!
