My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Jumping for joy!! THIS is Horror rendered just the way I like it: terse and tense, graphic and gory, violent and sentimental! Love it! Not to mention unexpected, revelatory, and very, very frightening! “Miss Wicker” is some kind of woman all right-very appealing (when she wants to be) and very empowered at all times. However, her kind of empowerment is not what feminists meant when they urged women to be authentic. Miss Wicker is her own very authentic self-and do we love it! As far as this reviewer is concerned, this is one perfect horror story, and Author Lisa McCourt Hollar has just taken her place on my list of definitely must-read-always authors. When I grow up, can I learn to write like this?
