"Playmate, come and play with me..."

A beloved classic reimagined with a dark twist.

After her parents' painful divorce, Evie Archer hopes that moving to Ravenglass, Massachusetts, is the fresh start her family needs. But Evie quickly realizes that her new home—known by locals as the Horror House—carries its own dark past after learning about Holly Hobbie, who mysteriously vanished from her bedroom one night.

But traces of Holly linger in the Horror House and slowly begin to take over Evie's life. A strange shadow follows her everywhere she goes, and Evie starts to lose sight of what's real and what isn't the more she learns about The Lost Girl.

Can Evie find out what happened the night of Holly's disappearance? Or is history doomed to repeat itself in the Horror House?

“Holly Horror is an absolute blast! Full of thrills, chills, and lacy frills, readers will have fearful fun with every page. I didn’t want it to end!”—Sara Farizan, award-winning author of Dead Flip

“This book should come with a warning label: Do Not Read At Home Alone! With chilling twists and turns, a supremely creepy haunting, and moments of psychological terror that would make Shirley Jackson proud, HOLLY HORROR is that rarest of treats: a genuinely scary ghost story. A must-read for all YA horror fans. I loved it!”—Rob Costello, contributing editor of QUEER BEASTIES: 15 Weird & Wondrous Monster Tales and author of THE DANCING BEARS: Queer Fables for the End Times

“Michelle Corpora has taken the country cute gingham of Holly Hobbie, and reimagined a fabulous patchwork of nightmares. You’ll never look at that bonneted silhouette the same way again!”—Ann Dávila Cardinal, author of BREAKUP FROM HELL and contributing author of OUR SHADOWS HAVE CLAWS: 15 Latin American Monster Stories
