Hester Young recommends
The Witching Elm (2014)
(Memento Mori, book 1)
C N Crawford
"C.N. Crawford's gripping YA novel combines dark and violent elements of Boston's colonial history with the magic and otherworldly evil of a contemporary urban fantasy. With friendship, romance, and plenty of action, THE WITCHING ELM will be an engaging read for teenagers and adults alike. I quickly consumed this tale of one city's long-buried sins come back to haunt its present."
Final Girls (2017)
Riley Sager
"Part psychological thriller, part homage to slasher flicks and film noir, Final Girls has a little bit of everything: a suspicious death, a damaged heroine, an unwelcome guest who trades in secrets, and not a single character you can trust. Plenty of nail-biting fun!"
