Girl in the Walls

A mesmerizing and suspenseful coming of age novel about an orphan hiding within the walls of her former family home—and about what it means to be truly seen after becoming lost in life



Eventually, every hidden thing is found.

Elise knows every inch of the house. She knows which boards will creak. She knows where the gaps are in the walls. She knows which parts can take her in, hide her away. It’s home, after all. The home her parents made for her, before they were taken from her in a car crash. And home is where you stay, no matter what.

Eddie is a teenager trying to forget about the girl he sometimes sees out of the corner of his eye. But when his hotheaded older brother senses her, too, they are faced with the question of how to get rid of someone they aren’t sure even exists. And as they try to cast her out, they unwittingly bring an unexpected and far real threat to their doorstep.

 Written with grace and enormous heart, Girl in the Walls is a novel about carrying on through grief, forging unconventional friendships, and realizing, little by little, that we don’t need to fear what we do not understand.

The Poet (Samantha Jazz, #1)

New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones brings a fresh, modern take to the thriller genre that will keep you guessing until the very end.

“The poet is a liar who always speaks the truth.” Jean Cocteau

Some call him friend or boss.
Some call him husband or dad.
Some call him son, even a favorite son.

But the only title that matters to him is the one the media has given him: The Poet.

A name he earned from the written words he leaves behind after he kills that are as dark and mysterious as the reason he chooses his victims.

One word, two, three, a story in a poem, a secret that only Detective Samantha Jazz can solve. Because he’s writing this story for her.

She just doesn’t know it yet.

Our Last Echoes

Kara Thomas meets Twin Peaks in this supernatural thriller about one girl's hunt for the truth about her mother's disappearance.

Sophia's first memory is of drowning. She remembers the darkness of the water and the briny taste as it fills her throat. She remembers the cold shock of going under. She remembers her mother pulling her to safety before disappearing forever. But Sophia has never been in the ocean. And her mother died years ago in a hospital. Or so she has been told her whole life.

A series of clues have led Sophia to the island of Bitter Rock, Alaska, where she talked her way into a summer internship at the Landon Avian Research Center, the same center her mother worked at right before she died. There, she meets the disarmingly clever Liam, whose own mother runs the LARC, as well as Abby, who's following a mystery of her own: a series of unexplained disappearances. People have been vanishing from Bitter Rock for decades, leaving only their ghostly echoes behind. When it looks like their two mysteries might be one and the same, Sophia vows to dig up the truth, no matter how many lies she has to tell along the way. Even if it leads her to a truth she may not want to face.

Our Last Echoes is an eerie collection of found documents and written confessionals, in the style of Rules for Vanishing, with supernatural twists that keep you questioning what is true and what is an illusion.

Flight (The Texas Murder Files, #2)

When former forensic photographer Miranda Rhoads moves to the seaside town of Lost Beach, she's decided to make her living as a wildlife photographer and put crime scenes behind her. But her plans are quickly upended when one morning, she comes across a couple sleeping in a canoe, entwined in an embrace. Looking closer, she realizes the man and woman aren't asleep – they've been murdered.

Detective Joel Breda sets out to find answers – not only about the unidentified victims in the marshy death scene, but also about the aloof and beautiful photographer who seems to know about his investigation than he does.

As they begin to unravel the motivation of a merciless serial killer, Miranda and Joel must race against the clock to make an arrest before the killer can find them first.

The Last Secret You’ll Ever Keep

Bestselling author Laurie Faria Stolarz returns with a thrilling novel where an eighteen year old girl's search for answers lands her in one of the most terrifying situations imaginable.

Four days…
Trapped in a well, surrounded by dirt, scratching at the walls trying to find a way out.
Four days of a thirst so strong, that when it finally rains, I drink as much as possible from the dripping walls, not even caring how much dirt comes with it.

Six months…
Since my escape. Since no one believed I was taken to begin with – from my own bed, after a party, when no one else was home…
Six months of trying to find answers and being told instead that I made the whole incident up.

One month…
Since I logged on to the Jane Anonymous site for the first time and found a community of survivors who listen without judgment, provide advice, and console each other when needed.
A month of chatting with a survivor whose story eerily mirrors my own: a girl who’s been receiving triggering clues, just like me, and who could help me find the answers I’m searching for.

Three days…
Since she mysteriously disappears, and since I’m forced to ask the questions: will my chance to find out what happened to me vanish with her? And will I be next?

The House Uptown

For fans of Megan Abbott and Laura Lippman, Melissa Ginsburg's The House Uptown is an emotional coming of age novel about a young girl who goes to live with her eccentric grandmother in New Orleans after the death of her mother.

Ava, 14 years old and totally on her own, has still not fully processed her mother's death when she finds herself on a train heading to New Orleans, going to stay with Lane, her grandmother whom she's never met.

Lane is a well known artist in the New Orleans art scene. She spends most of her days in a pot smoke haze, sipping iced coffee, and working on the mural that has been her singular focus for years. Her grip on reality is shaky at best, but her work provides a comfort.

Ava's arrival unsettles Lane. The girl bears an uncanny resemblance to her daughter, whom she was estranged from before her death. Now her presence is dredging up painful and disturbing memories, which forces Lane to retreat even further into her own mind. Ava, meanwhile, is entranced and frightened by her grandmother. She wants to be included in her eccentric life, but can't quite navigate Lane's tempestuous moods.

Attempting to keep the peace is Oliver, Lane's assistant and confidant. As this unlikely trio attempts to find their way and form a bond, the oppressive heat and history of New Orleans bears down on them, forcing them to a reckoning none of them is ready for.

Saving Grace

For twenty four years, Mary Grace Dobbs has been searching for salvation. Orphaned at eleven, she was forced to go live with her Bible salesman uncle, wheelchair bound aunt, and a cousin who tortured and killed small animals. At school, a bully made her life a nightmare. Everything changed when a newcomer to town became her only best friend, and changed a second time when that friend and another classmate vanished two months later, never to be seen again.


Today, Mary Grace is the first female sheriff of her rural town, a position that doesn’t sit well with some of the locals. Keeping order and her demons at bay becomes an impossible task when the Black drifter suspected in the earlier disappearances returns to Repentance . and another sixth grader vanishes. 


With old prejudices and new secrets spilling out into the open, the modern world soon illuminates the village’s darkest corners. The case becomes even fraught as a cult of white supremacists brings its gospel of hate to Repentance and violence explodes, claiming lives. Racing to find the missing girl while fearing for the safety of her own sixth grade daughter, Mary Grace must confront an unspeakable truth—and face a decision no parent should ever have to make. 


Set in a remote mountain town, where the secrets run as deep as the hollows, Saving Grace is at once a spell binding tale of innocence lost and a twisty, edge of your seat psychological thriller. This startling debut novel introduces a captivating protagonist whose concept of good and evil can shape a young girl—then and now. 

The Isle of Sin & Shadows


This island alone boasts ghost stories than all of Louisiana combined.
And I'm one of them.


In the Louisiana swamplands, ghost stories are as much a part of childhood as chasing fireflies and crawfishing. They never much scared me, though, nor the possibility of evil out to do me harm. Until the night I watched shadows come to life and butcher everything I loved.

With a stranger's help, I managed to escape to an isolated place miles north, and, in time, became my own ghost story. A cautionary tale for the locals.

Nearly a decade passed, before I returned to my birthplace, in hopes of unearthing long awaited answers. Instead, I found something I wasn't looking for. Someone. A remedy for my loneliness.

Or so I thought.

Turns out, Thierry Bergeron is no elixir. He's a deadly poison, cursed by the demons of his past, and feared by those who call him the elusive Rougarou of the bayou. A devious rogue, whose seductive whispers and rough hands haunt my dreams. The big bad wolf that defiles me without apology, or remorse.

I should resist him, but I can't.

And when the shadows return to stake their claim on me, his darkness is the only safe place to hide.

The Isle of Sin Shadows is a southern gothic mystery romance standalone

Diosyncratic character of the English So England made the English rather than the other way aroundWell that s a good idea but how long has England and the English existed And is what the author identifies as English any than the product of Victorian success and 20th Centaury decline And is a Cornish Englishman the same as a Cumbrian And do Cumbrians really exist or are they ghosts of Cumberland and Westland I doubt that English is enough of a fixed entity to be able to pin down the factors that make them so to any one time place or environmental factorI don t think you can have a book that openly admits that the geology of England is varied than almost anywhere else on Earth but still maintain that it is responsible in part for some overarching Englishness Clearly England s geology has had and still has a profound impact on the economy of the country but the dead coal villages of NE Somerset and Northumbria are really very very different despite clear but often Tono Bungay unacknowledged similarities Now this book is interesting to read even if I did want to argue with the author on many occasions but some things really need to be tightenedp a bit Most of s living in the south of England share DNA with pure blood Celts which would be of great interest if anybody could agree who the Celts were and even if they actually even existed as a distinct people Bath the only naturally occurring hot springs in England really There are hot springs in nearby Bristol I could go on but I think I have made my pointBut in the end I think it was the circularity of some of the arguments put forward in this book that I found most hard to cope with A love of ancient ruins is apparently a marker of Englishness because the English countryside has lots of them A love of ancient ruins is apparently a marker of Englishness because the English countryside has lots of them where does this start They are there because they are valued or did they become valued because they were there So this seems to a flawed maybe inaccurate book which nonetheless does try to look at the now contested ground of EnglishnessI would suggest you try to read a few chapters before you press purchase A fairly enjoyable wittily written book on what makes the English errm EnglishSome interesting facts to be had but the relentless factual style made me feel like I d been put in the stocks and pelted with facts for several hoursObviously in a book of this type you re going to get a lot of generalisations it is to be expected nonetheless some of them didn t really sound like the English people I spend time with I must say A couple of gripes Firstly it is very south centric if you live north of say Birmingham there s not so much local interest material as There Is For The Rest is for the rest s Secondly I thought there was a little too much on physical geographical and geological stuff AND NOT ENOUGH ON THE HUMAN not enough on the human I found myself skim reading a few chapters as a resultStill a pretty enjoyable easy ick read I was expecting something completely different from what this book offered It is basically a geography of the England and how it affects the way people livehousing trade dialect etc The major thrust is about the weather and why it is so varied on such a small island I think the title suggest something a little than that which I thought would be a study of English customs food and why they are so self containedIt is an interesting book if you are looking for a climate explanation but expect not much than that.
