Don’t fall asleep. Don’t dream. Don’t get caught.

Amy knew she’d hate Narrowdale, a boring suburban town. How could it possibly compare to L.A., where she lived her entire life? Being a high school freshman in a new place made things even worse.

And that was before she started having the same nightmare over and over again. Before she woke up every night to a shrill whistle outside her window. Before she met a homeless man who seemed to know way too much.

Some things seem to happen only in Narrowdale, where dark secrets are hiding beneath the surface…

My Review:

I found this book on Xpresso Tour site and was taken by how awesome the synopsis sounded. Seemed like something that would be both creepy and interesting. What I didn’t expected was how creepy it was, this was a great thriller like book, almost reminded me of that movie with Kevin Bacon, Stir of Echoes but without all the hypnotizing.. I always seemed to read this book at night when everyone else was sleeping which made it even more creepy. 🙂

I thought I would give you a few reasons why I liked this book.

  • Amy (the MC) is a funny, typical 16 year old girl and a bit guarded at times. I adored her she was a fantastic character to read about.
  • I loved the added Blog Post with all the comments from her friends. It really made you feel like Amy was a real girl in a town called Narrowdale.
  • Amy’s friends Shane and Corel are fantastic just two really great kids that Amy was lucky to become friends with.
  • I loved the writing, funny, intense, creepy and great story build. I really look forward to read more from this author.
  • Amy had her frustrating moment but I think that is because she was so guarded about what she believed but she was really likable. So it was a good frustrating 🙂
  • It scared the crap out of me!!!

I really enjoyed this book a lot, the story was really chilling and when the book was done it really left an impression. I enjoyed all the characters and the creepiness. Even Narrowdale was a character in itself. I look forward to the next book. “Only in Narrowdale” can you get a great story with very enjoyable characters.

  1. This sounds like a scary book indeed. I am not a big fan of horror books, but the short story collection I am currently reading had a horror short story and while it was creepy and gave me the chills it was very well written.
    The inclusion of blog posts in the story sounds well done and how fun you also get to read the comments on the posts, sounds like it makes things feel more real. The characters sound well done. Great review!
