The synopsis is a perfect lead into this novel and it's what had me sold on this book after being pulled in by the sinister looking cover.
Margot is about to unravel some deeply hidden family secrets that border on the verge of occultish. What should have been a saving grace from the tragic loss of her family quickly unravels.
I don't want to to into too much of the plot detail. The less the reader knows, the better. You'll enjoy the twists that much more. The characters are fleshed out well. Margot is expertly flawed though a little on the oblivious side in my opinion at times.
There are some areas that left me with questions and that is the only reason this wasn't a full 5 stars for me. I'd love to see this as a movie.
Highly recommend to anyone who enjoys psychological thrillers. Thank you Penguin Young Readers for the advanced e-arc. All thoughts are solely my own. True rating 4.5, rounded for Bookishfirst.
