Description-

  • God bless the little children
    When sixteen-year-old Amanda Verner's family decides to move from their small mountain cabin to the vast prairie, she hopes it is her chance for a fresh start. She can leave behind the memory of the past winter; of her sickly Ma giving birth to a baby sister who cries endlessly; of the terrifying visions she saw as her sanity began to slip, the victim of cabin fever; and most of all, the memories of the boy she has been secretly meeting with as a distraction from her pain. The boy whose baby she now carries.
    When the Verners arrive at their new home, a large cabin abandoned by its previous owners, they discover the inside covered in blood. And as the days pass, it is obvious to Amanda that something isn't right on the prairie. She's heard stories of lands being tainted by evil, of men losing their minds and killing their families, and there is something strange about the doctor and his son who live in the woods on the edge of the prairie. But with the guilt and shame of her sins weighing on her, Amanda can't be sure if the true evil lies in the land, or deep within her soul.

    July 15, 2015
    An old-fashioned ghost story plays on primal fears: parents turning on children, the dread of what is out there, and the horror of what might be within. Teen Amanda has been playing out in the woods, and she hasn't been playing alone. Against all teachings of her religious family-and after suffering a devastating breakdown the previous winter-she is now "with child" and trying to hide her secret in the family's crowded mountain cabin. Set in the unspecified past, the tale is reminiscent of Laura Ingalls Wilder's, even including parents called Ma and Pa. Relocation by ox-drawn wagon begins when Pa decides to follow rumors of a better life available out on the prairie, and soon, true to the genre, they move into a cabin thick with old blood and gore. Amanda laments, "I'm starting to believe that Hell is everywhere," and readers won't disagree. There's pestilence in the form of ants, feverish plague, and evil of, well, biblical proportion; Job has nothing on this family. This is nightmare on the prairie, and on the mountain, and in the woods, and pretty much everywhere in between; the only real question is which devil will get them: the one within Amanda or the ones circling the cabin? The fast pace and period dialogue mesh reasonably well. Best read late at night in a tent with a trusted friend nearby.... (Horror. 14 & up)

    Gr 9 Up-There isn't a moment of reprieve for haunted protagonist Amanda Verner in Lukavics's intensely creepy debut. Tormented by the guilt of sleeping with a local post boy and the unplanned pregnancy that results and confused by the strange visions that appeared after the birth of Hannah, her blind and deaf sister, Amanda is convinced that the troubles that follow her family are a result of her sins. Turn-of-the-century prairie life is already intrinsically tough. The previous winter was long and arduous, and the small cabin that her family has called home no longer seems hospitable for the coming one. In a protective move, her father decides to relocate the family to an abandoned settlement, where the harsh winter weather should prove milder. The Verners enter their new abode, a large cabin that from the outside looks promising, to find the floors and walls covered with blood. This is only the first in a series of chilling ordeals that ultimately leads to possession, death, and a flight from a demon whose evil seems baked into the very land the family inhabits. VERDICT There is no happy ending here and horror, and spine-tingler readers, YA and adult alike, will relish Lukavics's tale right down to the last terrifying page.-Joanna Sondheim, Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School, New York City
