What I liked best:
The Women in the Walls hooks the reader instantly. Amy Lukavics does a fantastic job creating the feeling of suspense and overall creepy tone. There is always that feeling that something is lurking right on the next page. It has everything that makes a great YA horror story, a creepy background, complicated characters with torturous pasts, family secrets, paranormal elements, and surprises around every corner.
The Women in the Walls is a page-turning mystery that can make some readers want to keep the lights on at night. . It is a really fast read and the vividness of the gore can be intense.
What left me wanting more: At times I wanted more of an emotional connection to the characters. But at times I was glad that I could keep my distance and get more involved with the mystery in the story. Overall, the plot twists and tone overcame that small detail.
Add this book to your creepy fall or Friday the 13th read, or when you are in the mood for a good scare.
