This spine-tingling and suspenseful page-turner is filled with dark family secrets, betrayals, supernatural twists and turns, and empowered teen heroines. After a bit of a slow beginning, Sawkill Girls picks up speed and the plot unfolds at a dizzying pace that will send some readers flipping back through the novel to make certain they don't miss a detail or a clue. It's a terrific, scary read with a feminist message that teens will find hard to put down.
