Sadie meets Girl in Pieces in this dark, emotional thriller by acclaimed author Saundra Mitchell.

Something happened to Ava. The curving scar on her face is proof. Ava would rather keep that something hidden-buried deep in her heart and her soul.

But in the woods on the outskirts of town, the traces of someone else's secrets lie frozen, awaiting Ava's discovery-and what Ava finds threatens to topple the carefully constructed wall of normalcy that she's spent years building around her.

Secrets leave scars. But when the secret in question is not your own-do you ignore the truth and walk away Or do you uncover it from its shallow grave and let it reopen old wounds-wounds that have finally begun to heal

Reviews for All the Things We Do in the Dark

The combination of a murder mystery and the breathless onset of a new romance forces Ava to confront the trauma of her own violation, while offering readers both narrative suspense and deeper than usual insight into the day-to-day struggles of survivors... offers hope and strength straight from Ava's arc as she becomes more than the thing that happened to her. -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books <strong>(starred review)</strong> Compelling and thought-provoking, this book is SADIE meets THE LOVELY BONES. Would recommend for people looking for a deep, psychological, and challenging but ultimately pensive and raw read. -- YA Books Central Like the worms in the soil of Ava's visions, All the Things We Do in the Dark will crawl into readers' viscera and stay under their skin. -- <em>BookPage</em> Praise for DEFY THE DARK: Sixteen darkly alluring stories relate horrid and extraordinary events that can occur only in the absence of light. Each uniquely eerie, goose bump-raising tale confidently journeys into the unknown, and almost every one has a thread of teen romance. -- <em>Kirkus Reviews</em> Praise for ALL OUT: Sumptuous language, plentiful historical detail, and satisfying endings....Readers searching for positive, nuanced, and authentic queer representation-or just a darn good selection of stories-need look no further than this superb collection. -- <em>Kirkus Reviews </em><strong>(starred review)</strong> This anthology of distinct stories and experiences is exceptional in scope and quality, and gives voice to the experiences that have long existed but often go unrepresented. -- <em>Publishers Weekly</em> <strong>(starred review)</strong> LGBTQIA story collections are scarce, but even if they weren't, this one would be essential. -- <em>Booklist</em>
