Dark Tides by Chris Ewan

The last time anyone saw Claire’s mother was on the night of Hop-Tu-Naa, Halloween on the Isle of Man. Forever marked with tragedy in the small community, Claire falls in with an edgy group of fellow teenagers who pull her into their tight-knit group and pressure her to go along with their random mischief.

Things take a dark and disturbing turn when, on the anniversary of her mother’s disappearance, a surprise “prank” goes terribly wrong.

And that’s all I am going to tell you about the plot, as so much of the pleasure of this book is in the suspense. It jumps back and forth in time, and frequently changes point of view, all designed to keep the reader off-kilter.

It works!  Fasten your seat belt.  If you open this book, you are in for a bumpy ride.
