Goodreads Names COMPULSION a YA Best Book of the Month

Fantasy, romance, and southern Gothic suspense mingle in this debut novel for teens, the first in a trilogy, about a young girl, Barrie, trying to escape the ancient curse that has blighted her family. Karen Hallam says, “I didn’t want to put this book down…. There’s so much sadness, but there’s hope and there’s family and feuds all rolled into a new world for Barrie Watson…. One of my favorite scenes has to do with fire and ghosts and an ancient curse. It’s a stunning visual scene. I still see it. It’s breathtaking.”
