Summary

Summary

On Whidbey Island, the Gray quintuplets are the stuff of legend. Pixie and her brothers have always been bigger and blonder than their neighbors, as if they were birthed from the island itself. Together, they serve as an unofficial search-and-rescue team for the island, saving tourists and locals alike from the forces of wind and sea. But, when a young boy goes missing, the mysteries start to pile up. While searching for him, they find his mother’s dead body instead—and realize that something sinister is in their midst.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A dark and earthy thriller with a touch of romance.” School Library Journal (starred review)
“Intensity and simple, evocative prose make this a solid choice for reluctant readers who want a dark, atmospheric mystery.” Booklist (starred review)
“A taut, suspenseful page-turner…Call it magical realism, horror division.” Kirkus Reviews
“Short in length but long on atmosphere, it’s a gripping mystery with a supernatural overlay that makes its setting all the more haunting.” Publishers Weekly
“Combines the perfect proportions of mystery and mysticism in this absorbing missing-person story…A perfect read for middle through high schoolers when the wind is howling outside and the rain is pounding against the windows.” VOYA
