Mira and Francesca Cillo—beautiful, overprotected, odd—seemed untouchable. But Ben touched seven parts of Mira: her palm, hair, chest, cheek, lips, throat, and heart. After the sisters drown themselves in the quarry lake, a post-mortem letter from Mira sends Ben on a quest to find notes in the seven places where they touched. Note by note, Ben discovers the mystical secret at the heart of Mira and Francesca’s world, and that some things are better left untouched. (Goodreads)
#1. Author. I haven’t read After the Woods yet but I have purchased it on my Kindle because no bookstores in my area received her debut for some reason. I did go out on release day to purchase it – only to be let down.
#4. Sounds reminiscent of The Virgin Suicides.
