    *Starred Review* Something scary happened to Hedda when she was six, something she hid deep in her memory. It was so traumatic that her mom moved them to a ranch in Arizona, away from the heavy prevalence of the Glare (cell phones, tablets, anything with a screen). Ten years later, Hedda returns to her dad's in California, reacquainting herself with the technology her mother warns can be deceptively persuasive. As Hedda settles into life with her old friends, the past resurfaces: the terrible thing her babysitter did and what the Glare really is—a game on the dark web that kills you in real life if you die 13 times on level 13. When her friends start ticking off one by one, Hedda comes face-to-face with her buried demons and discovers a new one lurking near. Harrison (The Killer in Me, 2016) will thoroughly scare readers in this eerie tale of playing people's fears against them with the power of suggestion. The first chapters, propelled by Hedda's mysterious past, are immediately transfixing; they're followed by the details of the ominous creatures in the Glare and heightened stakes at the finale as more people fall prey to the game. Harrison's ability to lead suspicions astray, her spine-chilling descriptions, and a main character with a distinct arc make for a worthwhile read for lovers of horror and beyond. Grades 9-12.
