What She Found in the Woods (Paperback)
Overmedicated and shipped off to live with her grandparents, Magda just wants to forget what happened at her old school. Wandering the woods, she discovers a wild boy who sees the real her. But there's also a nightmare lurking—and it's coming for her… Perfect for fans of books featuring unreliable narrators and mental health books for teens!
This is Magda's last chance. Recovering from a scandal at her elite New York City private school that threw life into a tailspin, she's shipped off to live with her grandparents in the Pacific Northwest for the summer.
Medicated and uninspired, Magda spends her days in a fog wandering the forest behind the house. But then she stumbles upon Bo. He's wild and free, and he can see the real her. Magda starts believing she might be able to move on from her past and feel something again.
But there's more to this sleepy town than she thought. And what Magda finds in the woods near Bo's forest home is the beginning of a whole new nightmare...
