First, I want to say thank you to Dreamscape Media and Netgalley for the advanced audiobook copy of this book. This is my FIRST advanced copy of any book/audiobook, so I was definitely excited when I read the email letting me know that I was granted a copy!

Wyatt is a teen who lives in a small town known as Wolf Ridge where every November, something terrible happens. She labels this is the “sickness” of the town. Last year, in November, Wyatt’s mom was murdered inside their home. Wyatt wants to know who murdered her mom and she wants to bring her mom some justice for unexpected murder. Wyatt has a best friend named Cash, who begins to worry her as time goes on. Eventually, she ends up having to do a school project with a boy named Porter (who happens to be someone that Cash despises) and she soon discovers that both Cash and Porter have secrets she never knew existed.
One of the things I really enjoyed about this book is being able to always ask questions in my head and wanting to read more to get the answers. I don’t think we ever really got the answer as to why all the murders/violence in November happened every year, but we were able to to get to the bottom of Wyatt’s trauma.
There is a lot of character development in this book, the narrator was pleasant to listen to and it was a great read that kept my attention the whole way. I can see myself reading future books by Sara Walters.
