Hello, fellow readers! Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners. I noticed when I link back to the original creator that their account doesn’t seem active. I want to continue to give them credit for this, but if someone knows a blogger who is currently hosting this, please let me know so I can give them credit.
The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel
This is a book I would pick up every time I went to Target. I haven’t seen many reviews for it in the community, but it sounds really interesting.
Everyone wants to be a Roanoke girl.
But you won’t when you know the truth.
Lane Roanoke is fifteen when she comes to live with her grandparents and fireball cousin at the Roanoke family’s rural estate following the suicide of her mother. Over one long, hot summer, Lane experiences the benefits of being one of the rich and beautiful Roanoke girls.
But what she doesn’t know is being a Roanoke girl carries a terrible legacy: either the girls run, or they die. For there is darkness at the heart of Roanoke, and when Lane discovers its insidious pull, she must make her choice…”
Why I’m Excited to Read It:
I actually read the first chapter of this for a Try a Chapter tag and really liked it. Honestly when I first saw the title, I thought this book would be about the lost colony of Roanoke, but that doesn’t seem to have anything to do with the plot.
