Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Horror has a new name: Daphne. A brutal, enigmatic woman stalks a girls high school basketball team in a reimagining of the slasher genre by the New York Times bestselling author of Bird Box. It's the last summer for Kit Lamb: the last summer before college. The last summer with her high school basketball team, and with Dana, her best friend. The last summer before her life begins. But the night before the big game, one of Kit's players tells a ghost story about Daphne, a girl who went to their school many years ago and died under mysterious circumstances. Some say she was murdered, others that she died by her own hand. And some say that Daphne is a murderer herself. They also say that Daphne is still out there, obsessed with revenge, and will appear anytime someone thinks about her to kill again. After Kit hears the story, her teammates vanish, one by one, and Kit begins to suspect that the stories about Daphne are real... and to fear that her own mind is conjuring the killer. Now it's a race against time as Kit searches for the truth behind the legend and learns to face her own fears. Or else the summer of her lifetime will become the last summer of her life. Mixing a nostalgic coming-of-age story and an instantly iconic female villain with an innovative new vision of classic horror, this is an unforgettable thriller as only Josh Malerman could imagine it"-- Provided by publisher.

    *Starred Review* Years ago, or so the story goes, there was a seven-foot-tall woman named Daphne who lived in Samhattan, Michigan. She died, or so the locals hope. She might have been a serial killer who was murdered herself, or possibly she committed suicide. Or, perhaps, she didn't really die at all. Maybe she's out there, and she wants to kill. Teenage basketball player Kit Lamb should be enjoying her last summer before going to college, but then her friends and teammates begin dying in macabre ways, prompting Kit to wonder whether the legend of Daphne could be true, and whether Kit could be the next name on the otherworldly killer's list. Others think what's happening now in Samhattan isn't supernatural: it's just the work of a very sick but quite mortal psychopath. Malerman, whose first published novel, 2014's Bird Box, immediately established him as a horror voice to be reckoned with, outdoes himself here. A palpable feeling of evil permeates the book; like Kit, we are in a constant state of unease, wondering what is about to happen and whether Daphne really has returned, all these years later, to wreak havoc on the community. Genius at work. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
