July 2013 Debut of the Month.

The discovery of a body by an ostracised 13 year old girl exposes the intense, claustrophobic and desparate lives of the characters in this fictionalised small American town. Their stories, brilliantly captured, really drive the narrative along in this excellent debut.

This literary mystery is a highly absorbing read - hard to think of it as a debut - and definitely a good candidate for reading groups.

Synopsis

The Next Time You See Me by Holly Goddard Jones

Thirteen-year-old Emily Houchens doesn't have many friends. She spends her time alone in the woods near her house - her safe place, until she finds the body of a young woman. Susanna Mitchell is searching for her sister, Ronnie, who vanished after leaving a late-night bar. The more she discovers about Ronnie's life, the more she realises that her sister began to disappear long before she went missing. THE NEXT TIME YOU SEE ME explores the fault-lines of a small community - their hidden desires and their other, secret selves.

Zarina de Ruiter

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.
