“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. “

The Girl from the Well is a very exciting and impressive debut from Rin Chupeco.
When I first seen this book in Barnes and Noble, I’d never seen it before or heard anything about it.
I guessed it was horror and grabbed right away. I’m really glad I did.

Right from the first page, this book got my full attention and never let go. I was really impressed with the
writing and concept. At times I was a little bit confused because of the fast pace but I think I was just reading too fast to take it all in. I was so excited to see that was going to happen next though out the whole
book.

I love how the book takes place in Japan. I always like it when YA books are set in countries other than the USA and UK. I really loved how the author described everything.

The characters were all really well written. I think that’s what impressed me the most, how well written the characters were.

If you’re looking for a great YA horror, this is the book to pick up.
