Introduction by Christopher Golden.
1 of 500 Signed Limited copies.
Seventeen-year-old Anna has a space in her memory of a night her brain won’t let her remember, a night that devastated her life and forced her to drop out of high school. Her grandmother, Evelyn, is slowly losing her memories to Alzheimer’s. When the family moves into a forgotten house on the outskirts of Evelyn’s home town, it's supposed to be a fresh start and a quieter life for all of them.
But when Evelyn starts behaving strangely in her lost moments, it’s Anna who witnesses it. It’s Anna who helps her. And as she’s drawn into life in the town and learns some of its recent gruesome history, she can’t help but begin to wonder if the dead are trying to talk through Evelyn’s empty spaces. And if so, what is it they’re trying to tell her?
REVIEW: I love a long fuse, and Sarah Pinborough’s THEY SAY A GIRL DIED HERE ONCE makes the most of letting tension and unease simmer and accumulate within the details of what seems a normal, low-key existence until the plot boils over and revelations and transformations come spilling out. And I have to say: perfect title, beautiful and resonant. I believe I am jealous. —Peter Straub.
