Teaser: Long Lankin

Long Lankin by Lindsey Barraclough. Candlewick Press. 2012. Reviewed from eArc from NetGalley.

longlankin Teaser: Long LankinLong Lankin’s publication date is July 2012.

In 1958, two young sisters are sent to live with an aunt in a remote English village. They trigger a generations old curse, endangering the life of the younger girl.

Horror and suspense, wrapped in the perfectly described setting of 1950s England, a time still impacted by two world wars.

Here’s my short pitch: Diana Wynne Jones, by way of Stephen King, with a splash of Peter Straub thrown in.
