Here There Are Monsters by Amelinda BérubéMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Spoiler Free Here there are Monsters is a skin-prickling horror (though, in my opinion, not an overly scary one) that has your mind jumping from one theory to another as you unravel Skye’s journey to find her missing sister, Deirdre.

As promised in a previous post, I'm excited to share the results of my recent burst of inspiration. This is a rewrite of the first chapter in a project I began years and years and years ago, which has sat, undisturbed, in my files ever since.
I've no idea what drew me back to this story specifically, but I'm more than happy to indulge in this long-forgotten project.
I've found it quite interesting, given this is a YA project. I've been drawn to my Adult Fiction works for a long time now, so rediscovering a YA voice has been a fun experience.
Anyway, without any further ado, I hope you enjoy reading this little excerpt as much as I liked writing it. And as always, feedback is welcome.
