Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In Paula Treick DeBoard’s latest breathtaking thriller, she paints a stark and chillingly real portrayal of a family torn apart by teenage transgressions. Gritty and inauspicious from the start, The Drowning Girls left me awestruck, revealing DeBoard’s true brilliance as an author. Spellbinding.” Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author
“Sure to be the book everyone is talking about in 2016, I could not put it down.” Catherine McKenzie, author of Hidden and Smoke
“DeBoard’s excellent psychological drama is haunting. It’s within the realm of possibility, which is even more frightening. She has an uncanny talent for taunting her audience with minute details. What seems obvious in the first chapter becomes the most unusual twist of all.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
