Hello Gemmies! I have a new cover reveal to share with you today. The Forest of Stolen Girls is a new historical YA mystery by June Hur, the author of The Silence of Bones. I am so in love with this cover. The detailed black and white drawing has an artsy organic feel that is just begging to be explored. In stark contrast, the bold block red letters scream.....danger! You just know some murdery goodness is coming your way.
Synopsis of The Forest of Stolen Girls from Goodreads:
Hwani's family has never been the same since she and her younger sister went missing and were later found unconscious in the forest, near a gruesome crime scene. The only thing they remember: Their captor wore a painted-white mask.
To escape the haunting memories of this incident, the family flees their hometown. Years later, Detective Min—Hwani's father—learns that thirteen girls have recently disappeared under similar circumstances, and so he returns to their hometown to investigate... only to vanish as well.
Determined to find her father and solve the case that tore their family apart, Hwani returns home to pick up the trail. As she digs into the secrets of the small village—and reconnects with her now estranged sister—Hwani comes to realize that the answer lies within her own buried memories of what happened in the forest all those years ago.
I absolutely love historical mysteries and this one sounds amazing! Published by Feiwel and Friends, The Forest of Lost Girls will release April 20, 2021 and is available for pre-order from all major booksellers. Are you looking forward to reading this book?
