Those are the rules in Rowan's Glen, a remote farming community in the Missouri Ozarks where Ivy Templeton's family has lived for centuries. It's an old-fashioned way of life, full of superstition and traditions, and sixteen-year-old Ivy loves it. The other kids at school may think the Glen kids are weird, but Ivy doesn't care--she has her cousin Heather as her best friend. The two girls share everything with each other--or so Ivy thinks. When Heather goes missing after a May Day celebration, Ivy discovers that both her best friend and her beloved hometown are as full of secrets as the woods that surround them.

MEDIA REVIEWS
* "Jude's characters exude authenticity, and the suspense stays palpable through the final pages."
--Publishers Weekly, STARRED review

"Poetic, multisensory narration immerses the reader in mystery and horror. Multiple red herrings keep the pages turning."
--VOYA

"It will appeal to readers of traditional horror titles as well as the more casual fan looking for an exciting, creepy read. The macabre descriptions sprinkled throughout are haunting and edgy and will thrill readers who like to be spooked."
--School Library Journal

"A wayward girl and a monster in the woods make a familiar tale, but Jude gets it just right, portioning out the precise amount of gore, secrets, sex, and deception to make a thrillingly dark murder mystery with touches of horror and the supernatural."
--Bulletin

"Debuting author Jude vividly describes the pastoral community, cultivating a sensual sense of atmosphere with descriptions of smells, textures, and sounds."
--Booklist

"This present-day mystery is ripe with superstition and serves up an atmospheric, authentic-feeling setting."
--Kirkus

"This book weeps atmosphere. Rich, intense, and sporting a cast of characters you will fall in love with, it draws you into the sordid doings of Rowan's Glen and doesn't let you go."
--Hillary Monahan, author of Mary: The Summoning

"Dark, dangerous, and drippingly gothic."
--Gretchen McNeil, author of Ten and the Don't Get Mad series
