If you or someone you know can’t resist the grip of an amazing thriller read and would love a Visa gift card (who wouldn’t!), then you can’t pass up this awesome giveaway!


A new thriller book called The Killing Woods by Lucy Christopher was published just a few weeks ago, and it’s already been deemed a big hit in the publishing world. The author of Stolen (which won several awards a couple years back when it came out) has crafted a compelling story of a girl trying to decipher the truth behind the murder of another girl and whether those she loves and trusts most could be involved. Check out the trailer for the book, the official synopsis, and what people had to say about it:

Fatal attraction, primal fear, survival in the forest: From the author of the Printz Honor Book Stolen, the highly anticipated thriller about deadly games played in the dark.

Ashlee Parker is dead, and Emily Shepherd’s dad is accused of the crime. A former soldier suffering from PTSD, he emerges from the woods carrying the girl’s broken body. “Gone,” he says, then retreats into silence.

What really happened that wild night? Emily knows in her bones that her father is innocent — isn’t he? Before he’s convicted, she’s got to find out the truth. Does Damon Hilary, Ashlee’s charismatic boyfriend, have the answers? Or is he only playing games with her — the kinds of games that can kill?

“A gripping, heartbreaking, emotionally substantial look at [the] allure of danger.” – Kirkus Reviews, starred review
