About The Girls are Never Gone
Publisher: Razorbill (September 7, 2021)
Hardcover: 336 pages
The Conjuring meets Sadie when seventeen-year-old podcaster Dare takes an internship in a haunted house and finds herself in a life-or-death struggle against an evil spirit.
Dare Chase doesn’t believe in ghosts.
Privately, she’s a supernatural skeptic. But publicly, she’s keeping her doubts to herself—because she’s the voice of Attachments, her brand-new paranormal investigation podcast, and she needs her ghost-loving listeners to tune in.
That’s what brings her to Arrington Estate. Thirty years ago, teenager Atheleen Bell drowned in Arrington’s lake, and legend says her spirit haunts the estate. Dare’s more interested in the suspicious circumstances surrounding her death—circumstances that she believes point to a living culprit, not the supernatural. Still, she’s vowed to keep an open mind as she investigates, even if she’s pretty sure what she’ll find.
But Arrington is full of surprises. Good ones like Quinn, the cute daughter of the house’s new owner. And baffling ones like the threatening messages left scrawled in paint on Quinn’s walls, the ghastly face that appears behind Dare’s own in the mirror, and the unnatural current that nearly drowns their friend Holly in the lake. As Dare is drawn deeper into the mysteries of Arrington, she’ll have to rethink the boundaries of what is possible. Because if something is lurking in the lake…it might not be willing to let her go.
“Nancy Drew meets Ghost Hunters in this queer thriller. An utterly addictive ghost story.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Based on the real life haunted house in the author’s family, this beautiful ghost story was impossible to put down. I felt like I had opened a doorway into an eerie, layered story that might not let me leave—and I loved it! One of Sarah Glenn Marsh’s most captivating novels yet!” —Shea Ernshaw, New York Times bestselling author of Winterwood
