Simmering in Patagonian myth, The Tenth Girl is a gothic psychological thriller with a haunting twist. At the very southern tip of South America looms an isolated finishing school. Legend has it that the land will curse those who settle there. But for Mavi—a bold Buenos Aires native fleeing the military regime that took her mother—it offers an escape to a new life as a young teacher to Argentina’s elite girls. Mavi tries to embrace the strangeness of the imposing house—despite warnings not to roam at night, threats from an enigmatic young man, and rumors of mysterious Others. But one of Mavi’s ten students is missing, and when students and teachers alike begin to behave as if possessed, the forces haunting this unholy cliff will no longer be ignored. One of these spirits holds a secret that could unravel Mavi's existence. In order to survive she must solve a cosmic mystery—and then fight for her life.

*Thank you so much to Sara and Imprint for the opportunity to read THE TENTH GIRL!*

Hi. Hello. It's been three days and I am still trying to wrap my head around the last 150 pages of The Tenth Girl. I been working with Sara on an interview for The Tenth Girl and I was thrilled when she sent me a copy to read so I could ask more specific book related questions! Jessica and Emily had the opportunity to attend a Fierce Reads event at BookExpo where Sara was a keynote speaker and met her when she was signing ARCs of The Tenth Girl! (I was on another signing line, so Jessica got a copy signed for me and then told Sara how much I loved The Tenth Girl!) I was hoping to meet her another day of BookExpo but I had sadly cut my trip short do to an injury. 

  • I loved Mavi's character and the dedication to had to her students and fellow teachers. She continuously the put their well being a head of her own in this situation. 

  • Hi. I know Domenico is suppose to be bad but I feel really really bad for him and just want to give him a big giant hug :(

  • THAT. PLOT. TWIST. WHAT. THE. HELL. I am still not over the plot twist in this novel. Sara blew me away with something so unexpected. I am so excited to see how other readers are going to take to this twist. 

  • I loved all the history surrounding the school. The legends and the myths. I loved how though the book was set at Vaccaro school, Sara made sure her readers got a feel of what the outside world was like as well. 

  • My heart continues to break for Angel and will until the end of time

  • Can we all take a moment to admire this cover and how beautiful it is. But also can we pay attention the the little details too? Those play a huge role in the novel! 

I really loved The Tenth Girl and I can't wait to read my by Sara in the future. She has a unique writing style that is going to suck you in at the first page and spit you stuttering and in shock at the last page!
