WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE CREEPING

"A small town legend, a missing redhead, a monster in the forest...Sirowy's The Creeping is a haunting, modern day folktale, in the darkest sense of the word. Fantastic."

- April Genevieve Tucholke, author of
BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA
and BETWEEN THE SPARK AND THE BURN

"Parts of this book will send actual chills down the reader’s spine, while other parts feel like a typical YA beach read. This mix of storylines — plus the wildly entertaining things that come out of character Zoey’s mouth — make this novel feel genuine and truly eerie. Readers will be up all night finishing Sirowy’s debut."

"Intriguing all the way through."

- KIRKUS REVIEWS

"Sirowy successfully weaves in an unnerving supernatural backstory, but the book’s very human conclusion is far more frightening than any of the town’s superstitions. VERDICT A solid choice for horror fans, this novel is a spook-tastic spine-tingler."

- SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

"Debut author Sirowy deftly balances two compelling storylines—a dark murder mystery and a tug-of-war rivalry for Stella’s attention between controlling friend Zoey and new love interest (and former best friend) Sam. Unanswered questions leave chills long after the last page."

- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"This novel has all the hallmarks of a psychological thriller: legends, unexplained goings-on, accusations, recollections, and an ominous woodland setting. Sirowy positions her protagonist to evaluate her beliefs in folklore versus life’s realities, bringing depth to Stella’s struggles and the suspenseful mystery in which she’s entangled."
