Because this YA novel is a retelling of Daphne Du Maurier's Rebecca
, I just had to read it! I very much enjoyed all of the Rebecca
elements that Paige Harbison re-tooled.
I was surprised that the fact that it was a retelling was not mentioned anywhere on the book jacket or front matter, and I wondered why the publishers made that decision.
Trigger alert for rape. If you'd like to avoid this, you can simply skip all of Chapter Twenty, as the subject is never mentioned again. It's just for "character development" a la Tomb Raider.
