About this item
About the Book"When seventeen-year-old Latavia is presented as a human sacrifice to an ancient beast, she is determined to do whatever it takes to survive--even if that includes making a deal with the monster and endangering her crush and family."--
Book SynopsisForced to spend her summer in her aunt's strange small town, a teen girl discovers dark secrets hidden in the woods. From the author of Bad Witch Burning comes another pulse-pounding novel perfect for fans of Supernatural and Lovecraft Country. Don't go outside past dark. Come straight home after church. And above all--never, ever, go into Red Wood. These are the rules Latavia's aunt gives her when Latavia arrives in Sanctum, Alabama for the summer. Though, weird as they are, living in Sanctum does have its pros. Mainly, the cute girl who works at the local ice cream shop. But Sanctum is turning out to be as strange as the rules--and the longer Latavia's in town, the more suspicious she is that the people there are hiding something. And the more clear it is that she's an outsider. Everyone's nice enough, but they seem determined to prove everything is normal. But it's not. Because there's something in Red Wood that the towns' people are hiding. And if Latavia doesn't follow her aunt's rules, she might not be able to leave Sanctum. Ever...
★ "[A] wildly inventive paranormal horror novel....Lewis provides elevating levity to the outlandish--and captivating--premise." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "Fantastically vicious." --Kirkus Reviews "A thrilling and often funny premise, balanced with a web of chaotic relationships between family, friends, a crush, and a monster, to explore discrimination, fear, power, and vengeance in this wonderfully messy, unabashedly queer, supernatural thriller." --Booklist
