Reviews

"A hauntingly atmospheric and gorgeously written page-turner, The Girl from Widow Hills is a deeply thought-provoking, riveting mystery about the complex weight of history and the dangerous power of the lies we tell ourselves." --Kimberly McCreight, New York Times bestselling author of Reconstructing Amelia and A Good Marriage
"Sleep-walking is creepy. You're asleep, but you're walking through the night-- like the living dead. I knew when I started The Girl from Widow Hills I was in for some shivers. But I had no idea the terrors that were in store." --R.L. Stine, bestselling author of Goosebumps and Fear Street
"With Hitchcockian flair, Megan Miranda shrewdly examines what becomes of the people at the center of those rare, sensational news stories that capture the nation's attention. The Girl from Widow Hills gave me the creeps in the best way possible." -- Chandler Baker, New York Times bestselling author of Whisper Network
"Miranda flaunt[s] her considerable talent for jaw-dropping, yet believable, twists. Even jaded readers might not see this one coming. An unusual heroine anchors this creepy, fast-paced chiller. This is Miranda's best book yet." --KIRKUS REVIEWS
"Miranda, a best-selling author of thrillers for both adults and YAs, sprinkles the present-day narrative with transcripts and reports from Olivia's past, building suspense with startling plot twists that lead to a stunning climax. Another compulsive page-turner from an accomplished author." --Booklist
"This is a great whodunit, done well. Olivia/Arden narrates but Miranda (The Last House Guest) creatively uses media transcripts, newspaper reports, book excerpts, and voicemails to piece together her fragmented story that ends with a chilling twist." --Library Journal

"Psychological thriller fans will enjoy the ride." -- Publishers Weekly

"The Girl from Widow Hills is a creepy, compelling portrait of a life forever warped by unwanted fame, a timely theme in this era of internet celebrity and the fall from grace that often follows. (There are strong echoes of the real life 1987 "Baby Jessica" media explosion, too, wherein a toddler fell deep into a Texas well and the nation breathlessly tuned in to CNN's live broadcast of the tension-filled, successful rescue effort.) It's a shivery kind of fun to wonder along with Olivia whether those close to her should be trusted or feared, and to urge her on as she races to unravel the past without unraveling her sanity." -- Bookpage

"The small-town cast is drawn in shrewd, suspicion-arousing detail; you'll point fingers at someone new every few pages." -- Martha Stewart Living

"With chilling twists and turns, this book will keep you captivated in the sand." -- BookBub

"If you can relate to your past coming back to haunt you, then this book is for you." -- PopSugar
