The Once Upon a Book Club Young Adult Box theme for August 2021 is WHISPERED FEARS!
Perched in the Catskill mountains, a centuries-old, ivy-covered campus was home until the tragic death of her girlfriend. Now, after a year away, she’s returned to graduate. She even has her old room in the exclusive dormitory rumored to be haunted by the spirits of five students—girls some say were witches. They all died mysteriously, one after another, right on the grounds.
Witchcraft is woven into the school’s history. The school doesn’t talk about it, but the students do. In secret rooms and shadowy corners, girls convene. And before her girlfriend died, she was drawn to the dark. She’s determined to leave that behind her now; all she wants is to focus on her senior thesis and graduate. But it’s hard when the school’s occult history is everywhere. And when the new girl won’t let her forget.
It’s the new girl’s first year, and she’s already amassed a loyal following. A prodigy novelist at seventeen, she is a so-called “method writer.” She’s eccentric and brilliant. So when they team up to research the death of the five students for her second book, saying no is not an option.
But when history begins to repeat itself, she will have to face the darkness in both the school–and in herself.
For fans of Wilder Girls and Ninth House comes a dark, twisty, atmospheric thriller about a boarding school haunted by its history of witchcraft and two girls dangerously close to digging up the past.
Dark, thrilling, and completely addicting, this is a novel filled with descriptive imagery and flawed characters that you can completely fall into. But will you find your way out? Paired with absolutely stunning gifts (one of which is our favorite of the year!
