What Should Be Wild by Julia Fine (5 out of 5)

This book is out now. You need to GO GET IT and read it. Wow! Thank you to the wonderful Cathy S. at Harper Collins for sending me a copy. It was fantastic! I thought it was going to be a sci-fi/horror story but it’s so much more than that. There is supernatural energy within its pages, and I don’t even feel like that description does it justice.

At the heart of the story is Maisie Cothay, a young lady whose whole life has been spent in its entirety; inside her father’s creepy homestead. Maisie is that rare lead character whose determination to know what lies in the forbidden wood beyond her home, makes perfect sense. Peter, her father, has expressly forbidden her from going into that wood. Is it because of concern for her safety? Or because he doesn’t want her knowing the truth? Maisie knows the stories: of missing people and men who emerge from the wood with addled minds. Maisie just knows she is not a normal girl. Touching others can mean life or death, if Maisie is the one doing the touching. Decades of missing Blakely women (her mom’s family) around their home make Peter even more determined to find out what happened, which he does- until the day he disappears. Maisie enlists the aid of the nephew of her recently deceased minder, Mrs. Blott. A different mysterious man (who gets under her skin, as in major crush) gets involved and Maisie’s thought process gets jumbled. This book? Seriously could not put it down. Delightful, darkly funny, and riveting to the end, anyone who has the good sense to pick this up, will have a hard time putting it down.
