  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 April #1
    *Starred Review* Whenever Clara moves to a new town, it's because that town is dying. Her dad works in demolition, tearing down the mills and factories that once supported communities when they fail. In Pender, Maine, it's the paper mill that's gone under, and Clara arrives in the fall at a town on the brink of collapse, starting as the new kid a month into the school year. Then she meets Bree and Sage, two girls who adopt her into their group of friends. As Clara starts spending time at the skate park near the woods and marshes of Pender, she grows closer with hard-edged Bree and level Sage, as well as with Trace, Sage's prank-playing boyfriend, and Kincaid, the mesmerizing, enigmatic boy who never seems to leave the woods and who tells stories about a monster called the Mumbler, who, every October, steals away a kid from Pender. Clara doesn't believe in the Mumbler, no matter how good Kincaid is at telling stories. But the truth is, kids do go missing in October. And Clara's starting to feel like someone is watching her. Edgar finalist French (Grit, 2017) elevates this mystery beyond genre conventions with depth of characterization and an unyielding, low-­level sense of anxiety that permeates the text from uneasy beginning to disquiet end. A spare, spectral thriller that catches like a hook and doesn't let go. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
