Published: Bloomsbury YA - November 6th, 2018

This is the perfect book for Samhain (Halloween) or for anyone who loved the Raven Quartet by M. Stiefvater, This is the first (of many I hope) for author Watson. The Wren Hunt is dark and faeire like (not necessarily the pretty or nice faeries either.) This about the wars within of the "Draoi" ie. Druid society; set in contemporary Ireland but based on the ancient tradition and song of the Wren Boys. It is also about becoming comfortable in your own skin from the point of view of Wren, a young woman dealing with truths, lies, love and treachery on many fronts. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan

For must of her life, Sadie's world was a normal amount of messed up - alcoholic mom with an endless parade of awful boyfriends, a trailer that's falling apart, a bratty little sister - same old story. Until the night her sister doesn't come home. Mattie's body was found the next day.
Now it's a year latter, Sadie has disappeared, and her grandma contacts West McCray, a podcaster who focuses on small town stories, and asks him to tell the world about Mattie and Sadie, and maybe find her living girl.
Gripping, mysterious, and uniquely told with alternating chapters, this was one of the cooler books I read this summer. Fans of My Favorite Murder and other True Crime podcasts should get this one on audio! ~ Reviewed by Leah Moore

White keeps in the gothic tradition while producing a bold new female voice in this marvelous and monstrous retelling. ~ Reviewed by Hanna Yost

Ness has flipped a familiar story on it’s head and retold it in a most beautiful way. The fully illustrated book is a delight to behold, but it’s the words themselves that will inspire you and make you view the world around you just a little differently. Just wonderful! ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty
