Sawkill Girls by Claire Legrand

3 stars

"Zoey's laugh was bitter.

'Oh, and we poor delicate girls are vulnerable and desperate, is that what you are saying?'

'What I'm saying,' Marion said, now looking right at Zoey, her grey eyes bright, 'is that girls hunger. And we are taught, from the moment our brains can take it, that there isn't enough food for us all.'"

Girls have been disappearing off Sawkill island for years, police trying to find the answers but all the cases end up cold. Marion has just moved to Sawkill Rock with her mother and sister, trying to find a new home. Zoey, the police chiefs daughter, has just lost her best friend. And Val, part of a family that has a big influence over the whole town. These three not-so-ordinary girls are called to fight an evil that only they can vanquish.

This was a good book for around Halloween time. From the beginning it gripped me and pulled me in. But the ending I just didn't like. Near the end it went downhill, and seemed rushed. I was very excited to read it because it was a Claire Legrand book (the author of Furyborn) and the synopsis intrigued me. Let me just say I love spooky, creepy stories but Sawkill Girls just wasn't for me. Even though this book was iffy for me I would still recommend it. So if you like Stranger Things or Supernatural I would definitely suggest this to you.
