Description-

  • There's something wrong with Rose.

    From the outside, the Cane family looks like they have it all. A successful military father, a loving mother and five beautiful teenage daughters. But on the inside, life isn't quite so idyllic: the Cane sisters can barely stand each other, their father is always away and their neglectful mother struggles with addiction and depression.

    When their youngest and most beloved sister, Rose, dies in a tragic accident, Mona Cane and her sisters are devastated. And when she is brought back from the dead, they are relieved. But soon they discover that Rose must eat human flesh to survive, and when their mother abandons them, the sisters will find out just how far they'll go to keep their family together.

    Gr 10 Up-The Cane sisters-Juliet, Taylor, Anya, Mona, and Rose-seem to be a loving, tight-knit group. However, their home life is far from perfect. Their dad, an army colonel, is away most of the time, their mom struggles with alcoholism and depression, Juliet rules the house in their mother's absence with an iron fist, and each sister has her own issue. Taylor is a mini-clone of Juliet, Anya smokes weed and spends most of her time texting her girlfriend while ignoring the family, and Mona copes with anxiety by hitting the bottle. The one thing keeping the fragile family together is Rose, the youngest and sweetest sister. After a freak accident kills Rose, the family threatens to disintegrate, but then Rose is mysteriously brought back to life-with a craving for human flesh. Lukavics splatters the pages with blood, guts, and mature language, but underneath there are stark commentaries on addiction, mental health, and just how far people are willing to go to protect the ones they love. The narrative is told from the perspective of Mona as she watches Juliet crumbles under the pressure of keeping Rose alive and descend into madness while her family relentlessly falls apart. Sisterhood dynamics are laid bare under extreme circumstances in this story, which makes for an ultimately nerve-fraying read. A shocking, albeit somewhat rushed ending concludes a harrowing and truly frightening text. VERDICT A must-have for horror collections. Future fans of Stephen King will devour this one.-Tyler Hixson, Brooklyn Public Library
