Description from Netgalley
As a fourteen-year-old girl in London, Alice survived a horrific stabbing attack by two classmates obsessed with Mister Tender, a graphic novel character created by Alice’s own father. Now, a decade later and an ocean away, Alice is trying to focus on the present—but the past won’t leave her alone. Someone knows far more than they should—not just about the night she’s tried so hard to forget, but also deeply private details about Alice’s life. Suddenly, the sinister Mister Tender is leaping off the page and into the real world, and he has his sights set on Alice.
In the vein of Alex Marwood’s The Wicked Girls, Mister Tender’s Girl is a harrowing psychological thriller about obsession, memory, survival—and how one appalling act can change the course of so many lives.
Loosely based on the Slenderman story, this book gives you the creeps as you try to figure out how a drawn image can have so much influence on people. As you continue to check around for a stalker that is watching your every move, you are also trying to determine who it is and how they know so much about a past that you have kept hidden for years.
I loved this book. I was equal parts creeped out and intrigued. I would put the book down to take a breathe and immediately would want to keep reading it. I have finished it a few days ago now and I can’t stop thinking about it and recommending it to those who love the horror genre.
I gave this book 5 crowns.
I received an e-arc of this book in exchange for an honest review from the publishers through Netgalley.
