The Killing Woods Blog Tour

“A gripping, heartbreaking, emotionally substantial look at [the] allure of danger.” – Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Fatal attraction, primal fear, survival in the forest: From the author of the Printz Honor Book STOLEN, the highly anticipated thriller about deadly games played in the dark.

Ashlee Parker is dead, and Emily Shepherd's dad is accused of the crime. A former soldier suffering from PTSD, he emerges from the woods carrying the girl's broken body. "Gone," he says, then retreats into silence.

What really happened that wild night? Emily knows in her bones that her father is innocent -- isn't he? Before he's convicted, she's got to find out the truth. Does Damon Hilary, Ashlee's charismatic boyfriend, have the answers? Or is he only playing games with her -- the kinds of games that can kill?

Who Killed Ashlee Parker? Read on to learn more about one of the suspects!


“‘Maybe she's a psycho like her dad is?’ I say. ‘Could happen.’I'd seen the anger in Emily Shepherd’s eyes as I pulled her off that girl today: She was a wildcat.”

Emily Shepherd loves her dad, Jon Shepherd. She will do almost anything to clear his name of the crime and resolutely believes that he is innocent of it. However, as the evidence starts to stack up against her father, she begins to wonder if killer’s blood is inside her too. Emily has also had a crush on Damon since he started at her school, and has always been a little jealous of Ashlee, the most beautiful girl in their class.
