The Girl From the Well: Possibly the Only Horror Book I WANT to Pick Up

The Girl from the Well book coverMaybe I’m biased because I’m acquainted with the author and have been a fan of her various creative work for some time now, but I don’t think The Girl from the Well is something any self-respecting book reader should ignore.

The blurb:

A dead girl walks the streets. She hunts murderers. Child killers, much like the man who threw her body down a well three hundred years ago.

And when a strange boy bearing stranger tattoos moves into the neighborhood so, she discovers, does something else. And soon both will be drawn into the world of eerie doll rituals and dark Shinto exorcisms that will take them from American suburbia to the remote valleys and shrines of Aomori, Japan.

Because the boy has a terrifying secret – one that would just kill to get out.

I’ve read the excerpt and seen the trailer, and now I’m itching for more. I’ve never fully gotten into the horror genre because I’ve always been a wuss a little jumpy, but I’ve always delighted in the creepy and folkloric, and this book definitely fits the bill.
