  • This enjoyably chilling suspense tale conveys both the thrills and the dangers of being a teenager on the brink of adult independence... The obvious questions of how she died and at whose hand are properly dealt with. But the fascination of this story is in the character studies of the surviving children, all grown up now and participants in a dark mystery that they all wish had never seen the light of day
