The Synopsis

It's an oppressively hot and sticky morning in June when Sterling and her brother, Phin, have an argument that compels him to run into the town swamp -- the one that strikes fear in all the residents of Sticks, Louisiana. Phin doesn't return. Instead, a girl named Lenora May climbs out, and now Sterling is the only person in Sticks who remembers her brother ever existed.

Sterling needs to figure out what the swamp's done with her beloved brother and how Lenora May is connected to his disappearance -- and loner boy Heath Durham might be the only one who can help her. 

This debut novel is full of atmosphere, twists and turns, and a swoon-worthy romance.

The Talk

First, the cover. When I was browsing through the upcoming books of the year (I was trying to snag some ARCs for review, to no avail :c ) I came across this. I mean look at that creepy cover! It gives me a sense of darkness.

Next, the synopsis! OH MY FREAKING GLOB! What?! A Mysterious-swamp-and-a-brother-who-doesn't-return-and-no-one-can-remember-him type of story! What the actual fudge. I need this. I need this NOW!


  1. Sounds creepy and I can't wait to read it! And the cover though, so gorgeous and creepy. :)
