Need more convincing? Here's a little look at what Behold the Bones has in store.
Candace “Candy” Pickens has been obsessed with the swamp lore of her tiny Louisiana town for . . . forever. Name any ghostly swamp figure and Candy will recite the entire tale in a way that will curl your toes and send chills up your spine.
That doesn’t mean Candy’s a believer, however. But with swamp haunts appearing in town every day, a suspicious new family in town, and her own mind starting to betray her, Candy must come to terms with the one piece of swamp lore she’s never heard before. It’s a tale that’s more truth than myth, and may hold all the answers . . . and its roots are in Candy’s own family tree.
"Candy's practical motivations combine with a witty, inventive narrative voice, creating one heck of a heroine. Shines with spooky Southern charm." -- KIRKUS
"...folklore weaves with horror to create a gripping read." -- BCCB
"[Candy's] loyalty, frustrations, determination, and sense of humor all paint a picture of a realistic teen, even with the fantastic events surrounding her." -- Booklist
