Sarah Moore Fitzgerald isn't new to the Young Adult universe, with this novel being her second. She came into the limelight with her debut Back to Blackbrick which was published in January of last year. However, in not being a heavy reader of young adult fiction, I was both apprehensive at the experience of reading such a novel and unaware of what to expect from Miss Fitzgerald. But, as the old expression goes, don’t knock it until you’ve tried it and that’s exactly what I decided to do.
Anyone who has already seen Nic Pizzolatto’s stunning HBO series True Detective - starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson - would expect his first novel to reflect many of the same high standards in story-telling. Well if one thing is for sure, it’s that with hauntingly beautiful prose, thrilling characters and an immersive Texas setting - Galveston does not disappoint.
