Short Synopsis
From New York Times bestselling author Brenna Yovanoff comes the story of Clementine, freed from the cellar where she was kept for ten years, trying to find out why she was imprisoned . . . and what secrets her town is hiding.

Full Synopsis
Clementine DeVore spent ten years trapped in a cellar, pinned down by willow roots, silenced and forgotten. Now she’s out and determined to uncover who put her in that cellar and why.

When Clementine was a child, dangerous and inexplicable things started happening in New South Bend. The townsfolk blamed the fiendish people out in the Willows and burned their homes to the ground. But magic kept Clementine alive, walled up in the cellar for ten years, until a boy named Fisher set her free.

Back in the world, Clementine sets out to discover what happened all those years ago. But the truth gets muddled in her dangerous attraction to Fisher, the politics of New South Bend, and the Hollow, a fickle and terrifying place that seems increasingly temperamental ever since Clementine reemerged.

"The pace and energy is like a sweet lazy river taking you away, with a few rapids along the journey. The pairing of story and narrator could not have been more perfect!" ---Eargasms Audiobook Reviews

"Narrator Carla Mercer-Meyer captures the eerie tone of the work with ease." ---School Library Journal Audio Review

"Eerily reminiscent of To Kill a Mockingbird. . . . This beguiling amalgamation of the magical and modern worlds will have readers mesmerized." ---Kirkus Starred Review

"Deliciously creepy. . . . The early descriptions of Clementine's decade-long entrapment in the cellar and her rescue are at turns vivid and horrifying, and become engraved in the reader's memory." ---VOYA
