The Girl from the Well by Rin Chupeco

The Girl from the WellThe Girl from the Well by Rin Chupeco
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Approved ARC from Netgalley

This is one of the best stories I've read in a long time. This book would make an amazing movie.

" You may think me biased, being murdered myself. But my state of being has nothing to do with the curiosity toward my own species, if we can be called such. We do not go gentle, as your poet encourages, into that good night.

A dead girl walks the streets.

She hunts murderers. Child killers, much like the man who threw her body down a well three hundred years ago.

And when a strange boy bearing stranger tattoos moves into the neighborhood so, she discovers, does something else. And soon both will be drawn into the world of eerie doll rituals and dark Shinto exorcisms that will take them from American suburbia to the remote valleys and shrines of Aomori, Japan.

Because the boy has a terrifying secret - one that would just kill to get out.

The Girl from the Well is A YA Horror novel pitched as "Dexter" meets "The Grudge", based on a well-loved Japanese ghost story."

I was approved yesterday for this book and finished all 304 pages in less than 24 hours. I couldn't put it down. It bare similarity to The Ring and The Grudge. They are all based off the same Japanese legend ,however this is my favorite version of all. If you like Japanese folklore, scary and creepy, this book is for you. I love the writing style as well and will be watching for more by this author! She wrote an excellent book.
