Ten-year-old Ava wakes in the night to the screams of her grandmother. Fearing for her life, she rushes to the window to escape the terror that waits outside her door.

Full panic sets in when the doorknob jiggles, then the familiar voice of her aunt rings out. Confusion clouds Ava’s sleep-filled mind as she realizes no one is there to harm them. However, the message she’s given is much worse than anything she could have imagined.

There was an accident.

With nowhere to go, no way out, and no one to save her, Ava alone must confront the nightmare that is now reality.

    I thought it would be longer but the plot is amazing and would love to see this in a longer version

    I think it was great from the beginning to the end but it was short and I think it needs a part two

    This book is horribly sad. I wouldn’t recommend it to people under the age of 13... It’s a really well written book! It’s creative and everything, I just don’t like the way that she (spoiler) MURDERS her father... that’s really twisted and messed up. If you like that kind of thing I would totally recommend it to you. This book isn’t horror though... I would call it disturbing. That’s not supposed to be a bad thing, by the way. It captures that feeling really well, better than I could ever do!

    I really hope I don’t get drunk. I don’t want my ten year old to hurt me... 🔪

    This was a great book! I just wish it was a bit longer, but I definitely recommend it!!!
  • Chilling...

    By HorrorStoryFinatic
    Honestly, this book was freaking amazing. From the first page to the last, I’d love to see maybe a little more detail, but that’s about it. SPOILERS: I really expected the girl to kill herself to try and be with her mom, but man did I ever get a twist ending. 10/10 must read!
  • Short, but okay.

    I feel bad for the girl. At least she got something good in the end. But it was short and wasn’t very interest keeping.
  • Great book

    It’s a great book. I wish though if it were a little bit longer and to describe the characters a little more. But overall it’s a great book! 😉
