Simmering in Patagonian myth, The Tenth Girl is a gothic psychological thriller with a haunting twist.

At the very southern tip of South America looms an isolated finishing school. Legend has it that the land will curse those who settle there. But for Mavi—a bold Buenos Aires native fleeing the military regime that took her mother—it offers an escape to a new life as a young teacher to Argentina’s elite girls.

Mavi tries to embrace the strangeness of the imposing house—despite warnings not to roam at night, threats from an enigmatic young man, and rumors of mysterious Others. But one of Mavi’s ten students is missing, and when students and teachers alike begin to behave as if possessed, the forces haunting this unholy cliff will no longer be ignored.

One of these spirits holds a secret that could unravel Mavi's existence. In order to survive she must solve a cosmic mystery—and then fight for her life.



I found myself drawn to this book from beginning to end as it simply isn't your typical young adult book. I am however finding it difficult to write a proper review because to do so would have me revealing many spoilers and I don't do spoilers.
 
I can say that this read is creepy, horrifying and at times revolting. There's also the fantastic elements of fantasy and mythology. I must make note that there are also indeed some triggers like sexual assaults and acts of pedophilia so this book, as you'll see from the various reviews isn't for everyone.
 
The author took me on a horrific ride which I won't soon forget and I am looking forward to reading her next book as this debut novel is off to a fantastic start. We give this book:
