What a supernatural page-turner! I loved this young adult thriller, with psychic elements and a missing girl—all set in a marshy, deep Louisiana town….

Dark and Shallow Lies is about the disappearance of a teen girl in a Louisiana small town. Named the “psychic capital of the world”, Grey can’t believe that after 6 months, no one has solved the mysterious disappearance of her best friend, Elora. Grey is determined to uncover what happened the night she disappeared, and begins to discover secrets after encountering a stranger with ties to Elora.

I loved the author’s way of describing the setting, and the immersive style of writing was incredibly addicting. This book was had some very creepy elements, with an ending I did not see coming. My only real complaint was the length of the book, as the middle did feel a bit less intense, however it’s all build-up for a shocking twist—one that had me staying up past my bedtime to finish!

Overall this book was quite unique, super fun, and full of plot twists. If you’re looking for a good YA suspense, look no further!
