Plain Bad Heroines: A Novel Cover Image

ISBN: 9780062942869
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: William Morrow Paperbacks - October 5th, 2021

Staff recommended: 1900s New England all girls boarding school – strange happenings, scandal and tragedy. The school is forced to close. A book is written about the whole thing and then a movie is planned. The young female stars are thrown together. Complicated relationships ensue. ;] Film shooting begins on the site of the school now rundown + abandoned. Strange things start happening again… is it haunted? …Cursed? As things unfold in the present we also learn what happened to the original heroines. A spooky and sharply funny, story within a story -- all quite well done. ~Elaine

The Book of Accidents: A Novel Cover Image
ISBN: 9780399182136

Staff recommended: Really great meld of thriller/sci-fi/horror. Lots of familiar tropes from all of the genres masterfully combined in new and unexpected ways. A misfit teenager with ‘special’ gifts [of course] moves back to the small town where his parents grew up [of course]. Into the actual house where his dad grew up, where Bad Things happened [of course]. Many family secrets [of course]. Kept me turning pages late into the night [of course! Hah!]. So good! ~Elaine.

Amazing [free!] Thriller Night with Chuck Wendig and Stephen Graham Jones!
