Today’s the day! My new suspense novel from Harper, Island of Lost Girls is now officially released into the world! It's in stock and ready to ship at all the online bookstores I've checked, and should be on the shelves of a real-life bookstore near you. Here are a few of the nice things people are saying:
"Island of Lost Girls is an unsettling account of the secret lives of children, told in unexpected twists and turns, as if Alice had fallen down the wrong rabbit hole and lost her childhood. McMahon never flinches, but her readers will at every dark secret." - Keith Donohue, author of The Stolen Child
"Haunting... McMahon expertly shifts between pivotal events in the past and present-day action, building tension to a resolution both poignant and shattering." - Publisher's Weekly
“As in her assured debut novel, McMahon offers a moving if bittersweet portrait of childhood... readers will be hooked on both the mystery element and the coming-of-age aspects of this atmospheric novel.” - Booklist
"Well-crafted... dirty family secrets and sudden plot twists harken back to McMahon's debut." - Kirkus
Also, I hate to sound like a broken record, but I want to thank everyone once again for the success of Promise Not to Tell – I continue to be flabbergasted. I hope you like Island of Lost Girls, too.
