Title: The Girl From the Well by Rin Chupeco
Genre: YA, Horror/Paranormal
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
Release Date: August 5th 2014

You may think me biased, being murdered myself. But my state of being has nothing to do with the curiosity toward my own species, if we can be called such. We do not go gentle, as your poet encourages, into that good night.

A dead girl walks the streets.

She hunts murderers. Child killers, much like the man who threw her body down a well three hundred years ago.

And when a strange boy bearing stranger tattoos moves into the neighborhood so, she discovers, does something else. And soon both will be drawn into the world of eerie doll rituals and dark Shinto exorcisms that will take them from American suburbia to the remote valleys and shrines of Aomori, Japan.

Because the boy has a terrifying secret - one that would just kill to get out.

The Girl from the Well is A YA Horror novel pitched as "Dexter" meets "The Grudge", based on a well-loved Japanese ghost story.

This looks brilliant!

Since it is due out in August, I will pre-order it when I get paid so I can surprise myself when I forget about it!

I have come across very few good YA horror novels so I actually can't wait for this one!

Thanks for sharing! :) xx
