Sneak Peek: January 2019 Indie Next List

The January 2019 Indie Next list includes three Macmillan titles! 

GHOST WALL by Sarah Moss 
“Moss delivers a powerful and unsettling novel about an Iron Age reenactment that steadily morphs into something sinister…. This is a haunting, astonishing novel.”Publishers Weekly, starred review

“This novella-length story is thought provoking on multiple levels, with insights into primitive and modern societies, and coming of age in the face of family violence.” 
Library Journal, starred review

AN ANONYMOUS GIRL by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen 
Three starred reviews!

“For those who relished the creepy stalking in Hendricks and Pekkanen’s THE WIFE BETWEEN US, this unnerving tale will have them rethinking what secrets are safe to share and if morals and ethics really matter when protecting the ones you love.”
Library Journal, starred review

“The juxtaposed points of view, with reactions of each protagonist to the other, keep the reader guessing until the end. A great follow-up to THE WIFE BETWEEN US.”
Booklist, starred review

IN AN ABSENT DREAM by Seanan McGuire 
“McGuire’s fourth in the ‘Wayward Children’ series takes the concepts of fairness and common sense and twists them through the doorways of a portal fantasy with an amazing landscape and characters. Lyrical prose cuts with an honesty of losing childhood innocence that eases the heartache that sometimes accompanies coming of age.”Library Journal, starred review
