Our favorite YA psychological suspense author, Stephanie Kuehn, has done it again with her third knockout book, DELICATE MONSTERS, about three deeply damaged teenagers uncovering dark secrets and even darker truths about themselves.

It’s raking in starred reviews! No surprise—her debut novel CHARM & STRANGE won the 2014 Morris Award and her second book, COMPLICIT received three stars.


Award-winning Kuehn is firing on all cylinders with her latest taut psychological thriller. Kuehn effortlessly switches between Sadie, Emerson, and Miles, unspooling an intriguing entwined story that dips backward and forward, rife with teasing questions that gradually lay bare troubling secrets. Like her previous YA novels, this one benefits from tight construction, expert pacing, and voices that ring especially true for contemporary teenagers, particularly Sadie’s entrancing, gleefully acerbic tone. Intelligent, compulsively readable literary fiction with a dark twist.” — Booklist, starred review

“Kuehn once again proves herself a talented writer in a tough, punishing novel about the damages we inflict on others and the shaky defenses we build to mask trauma and guilt.” Publishers Weekly, starred review
