"Devil in Ohio kept me up until 3 a.m. with the lights onin a good way. Its a haunting thriller for readers who like fear, humor, and heart in one package."Meredith Goldstein, advice columnist and feature reporter for The Boston Globe, author of upcoming YA novel Chemistry Lessons. "Gripping, urgent and addictive, Devil in Ohio balances the dark exploration of cults with a compelling and often humorous take on teen social dynamics. This is the debut you wont want to miss."Aditi Khorana, author of critically acclaimed The Library of Fates and Mirror in the Sky When fifteen-year-old Jules Mathis comes home from school to find a strange girl sitting in her kitchen, her psychiatrist mother reveals that Mae is one of her patients at the hospital and will be staying with their family for a few days. But soon Mae is wearing Juless clothes, sleeping in her bedroom, edging her out of her position on the school paper, and flirting with Juless crush. And Mae has no intention of leaving. Then things get weird. Jules walks in on a half-dressed Mae, startled to see: a pentagram carved into Maes back. Jules pieces together clues and discovers that Mae is a survivor of the strange cult thats embedded in a nearby town. And the cult will stop at nothing to get Mae back.

Not going to lie I picked this book up just because it is set in Ohio. But I was hoping for so much more. It was just a little to juvinile for me anddis not include enough scares.

A little late night reading, during a full moon, to finish off Devil In Ohio. It was a good book but the ending left me wanting to know a bit more. The story, in itself, was intriguing though. It was a good read for this time of year.

Diving back in after a weekend with family. So far so good. Anxious to see how the plot moves along.

There are few moments that I will set aside all other reading to pick up another book. This is one of those moments! I have been waiting to read this for a month and the previous person who checked it out finally turned it in! (2 weeks late). I'm so excited to read this! Fall feels! 🍁

This fell flat for me. So much more could have been done with it to make it super creepy, but ironically there were unnecessary details. The main character was whiney but wouldn't stand up for herself which was kind of annoying. Overall, a quick read that I won't remember in a few months.

This book had me kind of meh. i didn‘t hate it. Didn‘t love it. it floated in between all of it to just... exist. I wasn‘t a fan of any of the characters and had no sympathy for any of them when things happened, so it didn‘t help, but the story was interesting. I also couldn‘t understand how algae could bring a patient home when it‘s totally against the rules. But okay.

3.5⭐️, just because I love anything with creepy crazy shtuff going on.

Thank you so much @SiriuslyWeasley for your generosity! The book sounds really good, I love socks, Dustin is my one of my favorites from Stranger Things and I don‘t have him yet, the bookmark is beautiful, 🍫, tote bags are always needed, and the Neil Gaiman chapstick is amazing (please not that the brand is Notoriously Morbid - how perfect)! I love everything!!!

SiriuslyWeasley You're most welcome!! I'm so happy you're pleased. 😊💖 (Side note: Notoriously Morbid is my favourite indie cosmetic brand. How could you not love someone who offers Gaiman's Grape Soda balm?!?) 2y

TheLibrarian @batsy @SamHeartCoffee I couldn‘t believe there was such a thing either. So cool!! 2y
TheLibrarian @SiriuslyWeasley I‘ll have to check out Notoriously Morbid for some other stuff. The chapstick is great and really smells like grape! 2y
