THE PROJECT by Courtney Summers

3 starred reviews!

“Summers follows up her smash hit SADIE (2018) with a deeply disconcerting investigative thriller that seems unassuming but worms under the skin and into the mind. Bit by bit, she unspools the threads of her story—Lo narrating in the present, flashes of Bea’s history revealed in the past—until, eventually, the brutally tense beginning gives way to the frenzied end.”—Booklist, starred review

“A powerful, suspenseful, and heartbreaking thriller about identity, sisterhood, and belonging.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“A gripping, flawless psychological thriller ready to leave readers shattered.”—School Library Journal, starred review


“Diverse characters, a compelling plot, romantic tension, and Camille’s internal conflict with her own magic powers fuel this intriguing story that will resonate with fantasy and historical fiction fans.”—School Library Journal

ALL THAT GLITTERS by Gita Trelease
