Girl A – Abigail Dean


This was a deviation from my normal read and I am so pleased to have read it. Absolute belter of a read.

Lex arrives at a prison where her mother has died to find she has been made executor of her will. Her and her siblings have been left the family home, known as ‘The House of Horrors’ on Moor Woods Road. Lex has spent a long time putting the past behind her but this makes her contact her siblings to agree on what to do with the house which has been empty since Lex known as Girl A, escaped.

One of the best features was the way the story alternated between present day and the gruesome flashbacks which I found compelling reading. The way the family gradually deteriorated was cleverly portrayed.

This was a gripping read, dark and, at times, horrifying. The ending was clever and well thought out.

Thank you to NetGalley, Harper Collins UK, and Abigail Dean for the ARC of ‘Girl A’ in return for my honest review.

Excellent read and highly recommended.
