According to DNA evidence, the bloody girl who stumbles out of the woods after being missing for a year is Annaliese, accomplished poet and beloved daughter. But the girl herself has no memories and no idea who she is; the only thing she does know is that "I wasn't Annaliese. I never would be." Once the novel sets up this intriguing contradiction, it gets creepier. There's something sinister about the chubby redheaded boy at school; Annaliese's ex is unnaturally obsessed with her; the guy next door, Dex, has his own dark secrets; and most disturbing of all, the girl is struck by hunger pangs -- for her classmates. Well-paced flashbacks reveal that the girl, originally named Anna, took Annaliese's life, and the lives of many girls before her, by preying on their insecurities and secret desires. And she possesses their bodies through a grotesque (not for the squeamish) ritual. As the final puzzle pieces fall into place, Anna knows she is doomed to kill someone else. This supernatural story takes readers on a gripping, frequently bloody ride that is, in Anna's relationship with Dex, also strangely romantic. Author Quinn skillfully occupies the mind of a young woman who turns out to be a monster -- yet one who's not beyond redemption. rachel l. smith

Gr 10 Up—Annaliese returns to her family in Buffalo after disappearing. She has complete amnesia, a terrible scar on her forehead, and brain damage. However, the teen seems no worse for it-until she finds herself craving human flesh. Little by little, memories begin to surface, but they are not hers. Rather, they belong to Anna, the being who has taken over Annaliese's body. Anna's memories are of living one short year in the bodies of many other teenage girls until it is time for the bloody ritual that allows her to transfer to yet another. The old body turns to dust as the new one is inhabited. Anna realizes that she is some sort of monster. She is determined to stop the horrifying cycle with the love and support of an outsider named Dex, who has his own dark secret. Her story is nicely written in short segments, each with a title, and independent poems are dispersed throughout. The author cleverly assists readers in mentally switching between the past and present as the story unfolds, while the poems allow them to get to know the real Annaliese. The mystery builds at a leisurely pace, giving plenty of time to plot and character development. The varied story elements also tie together neatly at the end. This supernatural romance will fit the bill for teens who like eerie mysteries tinged with grit and gore.—Mindy Whipple, West Jordan Library, UT
