"Seventeen-year-old Farrah Turner is one of two Black girls in her country club community, and the only one with Black parents. Her best friend, Cherish Whitman, adopted by a wealthy white family, is something Farrah likes to call WGS-White Girl Spoiled. With Brianne and Jerry Whitman as parents, Cherish is given the kind of adoration and coddling that even upper-class Black parents can't seem to afford-and it creates a dissonance in her best friend that Farrah can exploit. When her own family is unexpectedly confronted with foreclosure, the calculating Farrah is determined to reassert the control she's convinced she's always had over her life by staying with Cherish, the only person she loves-even when she hates her. A troubled Farrah manipulates her way further into the Whitman family but the longer she stays, the more her own parents suggest that something is wrong in the Whitman house. She might trust them-if they didn't think something was wrong with Farrah, too. As strange things start happening at the Whitman household-debilitating illnesses, upsetting fever dreams, an inexplicable tension with Cherish's hothead boyfriend, and a strange journal that seems to keep track of what is happening to Farrah-it's nothing she can't handle. But soon everything begins to unravel when the Whitmans invite Farrah closer, and it's anyone's guess who is really in control. Told in Farrah's chilling, unforgettable voice and weaving in searing commentary on race and class, this slow-burn social horror will keep you on the edge of your seat until the last page"--… (mer)

Slow start but intriguing enough to keep me reading. There is a creeping, unsettling horror that ramps up and becomes totally unhinged toward the end. There is also some exquisite body horror near the end as well, if that's your thing.

The prose reminds me of Shirley Jackson-specifically The Haunting of Hill House. I tend to like more straightforward prose and there were quite a few times where I wasn't sure if things or people were actually happening/there. That's a me issue, I know.

Overall, if you're looking for societal horror you wouldn't go wrong to read this. ( )

I was not expecting the thrilling ride that I got from this book! I knew it was a thriller just not as dark but I loved every minute of it! I read somewhere that they recommend that you read this book without reading the blurb so I went in almost completely blind to what was going to happen. But that just added to the adventure! Absolutely addictive and a fantastic read! ( )

This is a horror novel, plain and simple. I was sickened by some of the scenes in this novel, and the control one person held over the other.
Cherish and Farrah are two black teens from wealthy families. However, Cherish was adopted by white parents, and they have gone out of their way to care for her "blackness" in a white world. She is spoiled and loved. When Farrah and Cherish become friends in the 4th grade, they share a moment of pain and control that Cherish's parents admire. Later, Farrah begins to realize that not all is what it seems but she isn't sure whether Cherish knows what is happening. Farrah puts Cherish to the ultimate test, to see if Cherish truly loves Farrah.
I am white, so I don't presume to know what black teen girls face, but this friendship seemed unhealthy from the start. The control and hurt was something difficult to stomach, and the final scene was terrifiying.
This book is tense and grabs you from the beginning - but it does have some scenes that are cringe-worthy.
Thanks to Net Galley and Dutton Books / Penguin Random House for the ARC. All opinions are my own. ( )
