Editorial Reviews

Review

"In her stunning debut, Emily Ross sweeps the 1960s and everything that came with it, exploring the turbulent era and domestic abuse." -- YA Interrobang

Finalist for Best YA Novel in the International Thriller Writers Organization's 2016 Thriller Awards

"This story will grab teen's attention. Ross succeeds brilliantly in conveying the confusion, passion, trepidation, fearlessness, and terror that every 15‑year‑old can relate to. Fans of Lois Duncan will appreciate the gentle spine tingles offered here. The power and beauty of the prose make this novel a standout." ‑‑School Library Journal

"Half in Love with Death paints a beautifully disturbing picture of a fairly typical 1960s family. The juxtaposition of such a sweet, innocent, naive girl against the potential horrors of what happened to her sister is a theme that has been skillfully threaded throughout the book. Half in Love with Death sneaks up on you.... It pulls you in with its beautiful prose, only to set you up for a thriller so true to life it will make you question how well you truly know your neighbors." ‑‑Hypable

"Half in Love with Death captivated me beyond the last page, leaving me with so many thoughts and praises for this fantastic story.... A haunting novel with elements of mystery and romance. The characters are extremely well‑developed, which makes the mystery even more difficult to solve.... Chilling and enthralling." ‑‑TeenReads.com
